Yeah! I put together the quilt top for my Spools quilt! I have yet to quilt it but I wanted to show you how cool the blocks look stitched together. The quilt measures 38-3/4″ x 42-1/4″ and the blocks finish at 5″ x 9″.
I followed the spool instructions from Peta Peace’s book A Piece of Cake – Sweet and Simple Quilts from Layer Cake Squares published by Martingale. All the fabrics are by Riley Blake Designs – the fabric line is called Apple Farm by Penny Rose Fabrics. I am glad I chose these fabrics!
The sewing notions I machine applique’ on some of the blocks was a cool addition to this project. The iron, seam ripper, rotary cutter, scissors, and button jar were taken from the book Needle and Notions book also published by Martingale.
I can’t wait to quilt it. I have the perfect fabric by Riley Blake also for the backing. However, on this snowy day, I am writing patterns so the quilting will have to wait. My husband has his winter jacket and hat on because it is cold and the fluffy stuff is still coming down.
