I am so happy that Sinta is hosting this weekly BOM Rehab. If I accomplish nothing else during the course of the week, I'm motivated to at least work one Northern Lights block into my schedule.
This week I decided to make the spool block, it goes with the general theme of things in my sewing room right now!
These are big spools, this block is 16 1/2 inches.
Here's how it looks surrounded by the setting blocks.
Two focus blocks done, 5 more to go!
You know how I said Free Spirit Medley looked better in the pictures than in real life, the total opposite is true of this project, I can't take a picture that captures the soft, mellow, loveliness of this project, but trust me, it's going to be a beauty!
Here's the pattern cover that came with the project, and what I aiming for.
The majority of the fabrics that I'm using are Lumiere de Noel by French General for Moda and some Park Avenue by 3 Sisters for Moda. Older lines of faric that I had on hand that I think work well together. I have also been able to use 3 different pieces of the fabric that came with the BOM.
This pattern is by Marti Michell, here is her version.
I just love seeing the same quilt made with different fabric. If these two quilts were hung side by side, I'm not sure you would notice that they are made from the same pattern.
Hey, Mary Caldwell, you won the Spools pattern but I don't have a way of contacting you, please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. THANKS!
If I don't hear from Mary by tomorrow I'll pick another winner.
