Just a little something I whipped up on a whim last night.... A 9" (finished size) spool block.
I have been working on my current quilt for quite some time now. And am almost finished. But I needed a little distraction. So, I sat down with a pad of grid paper and drew up this block. I have seen some around on the interweb, but I did a search for a pattern and came up dry. Do you know if anyone has made a pattern like this?
It felt good to get the bins of fabric out and choose some scrappy bits to go with the plan. Can't you just see a whole quilt of these? Well.... at least a mini quilt for hanging in the sewing room? What do you think?
I think it's lovely! It reminds me of your blog button!

Very cool! would make a cute throw in rainbow colored spools!
I love it! I like the 5 different colors on the gray spool! It's a great size, too. I'd say you have a winner.
Lovely stitching as always! Look forward to seeing the finished mini-quilt, or whatever you choose to do with it :) Kate
I have a spool pattern drawing. It surprised me when I first saw it. It looks like one of those perspective optical illusions (is the box coming at you or going away?) or a drawing of a room (google image search "perspective empty room").
Here's another take that uses triangles: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ss/graces_spools.htm
Yours is lovely! :)
What a cute spool!! I can't wait to see what this ends up in. :D
It's a variegated spool! Love this block you've made. It could really start something bigger, if you wanted it to.
Very cute and just my colours! A very nice wallhanging for a sewing space. Distractions are good!
I'm so glad you linked to Needle and Thread Thursday, Lorna!
