Spools 6 by helenjanei

After a lot of effort, all 84 spools blocks are finished. Sadly some are not exactly, er, square...so 3 have been sacrificed to leave a 9x9 layout. I'm pretty happy with that.

Thanks have to go to my Mother who sewed exactly 25% of them, I'll keep it private who sewed the 3 dodgy ones...(it was actually me).

Since they are all sewed by hand (strangely relaxing in front of Christmas TV) I'm thinking of keeping this a by hand project and doing the rows this way as well.

Sadly this is sinking on my WIP list as there are other projects which need to be finished and this is just for me. I'm hoping it'll be done before next Christmas though!


  1. These look great! I wonder why those three went rogue...

  2. It is looking good and don't forget to let Carolyn see it - she will be pleased!

    I just have 18 done - so have a lot of catching up to do!

  3. Great looking blocks...... It will be interesting to see how you quilt it.
