This started out as a Leaders and Enders project, using 2" squares of green and purple... leftover from the Star Log Cabin and some more added in.
The blocks measure 12" finished and I had the crazy idea that there should be matching 6" blocks in the corner. Yes, crazy me. :)
I have had a few people comment that they have never seen this type of pattern of spools before. I have been calling it Scrappy Spools. If you look closely, the purple sashing fabric is of Sewing Sues - couldn't be more fitting! :)
I love this pattern so much that I've done it again - the all purple one went to somebody that will put them in a Love Quilt. (The color is off a little... I accidently lightened it up too much. :P)
The blue and yellow one went to a lady who got a "block shower" because she already had a love quilt and her mom that was ill also had a love quilt... what to do, but shower her in blocks of her favorite color.
Since I have a bunch of purple and green HSTs and 4-patches left, I'm thinking I'm gonna do spools again... but with a little twist. I'm not going to use any more white filler pieces, but create a secondary spool that will only make sense when 4 blocks are joined together. See? I'm probably not making sense, and now I'm gonna have to actually do it so you know what I mean. :)
Hope you all have a nice Christmas and you get what you really want. I am hoping for JoAnn gift cards, the WonderCut Ruler and especially the fabric dye starter kit from Dharma Trading. I really hope I get it!! :)
