Spools-Along Sew-Along Updates . . .


First we've got another Spools-Along Sew-Along finish, 
mine!

I started making blocks and couldn't stop so my Spools has an extra row of spools.


Then I thought it needed a little something more, so I played around with some little spools blocks and threw a few of those in for fun.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 92
The print fabric is Bliss and Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
The background fabric is Moda Bella Solid Number 9900-97, Bleached White
The quilt finished at 59" X 66"
It has approximately 891 pieces.

And next I have an update, from Sinta.



When Sinta was finished connecting all her spools she thought it  needed a little something something too, but instead of changing the inside of the quilt she decided to work on the outside of the quilt.  She's added this little inner border and is not done yet.  But I LOVE where she's going.  I think she could quilt right now and have an adorable finish.  I can hardly wait to see what else she adds!

There's still plenty of time to join the fun, I bet you could whip out the small wallhanging, 16 block project, this weekend!

  12. We all knew that we could count on you to Thelma-fy your Spools quilt! Who knew baby spools could be so cute? Sinta's addition of the B/W border is nice too. Wonder what she'll add as the outer border?? I have an updated photo today, too. Still not finished, but having fun along the way!

  15. Oh, I think that Camille will be so proud when she sees your version of Spools. Those little spools are GENIUS! Can you share the dimensions? I love what one of the other ladies called it. "Thelma-fy!" Webster needs to add that in their dictionary!!!

  16. Oh my gosh Thelma!!! I have loved the Spools pattern since the first time I saw it, but I had always thought it needed just a tiny bit of something...I'm so glad you added the perfect "tiny" bit to make it even more delightful. What a gift you have!!! Hugs...
