Spoolin' Around


This month my OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to get 783 - 3 inch spools assembled into a quilt top 81 x 87.    If I get it completely finished that will be a bonus (or my Dec. OMG goal). 


I started making a few of these each month in 2014 (or was it 2013? I think 2013. ) as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project after I saw Kathy of Kathy's Quilts making them.   Funny thing...Kathy is  working on getting her spools assembled this month too.   We are using the same block but making quilts that will look very different when finished.  But oh the scraps we have used!

That is a lot of spool blocks! This will be a fun quilt top. Thanks for linking up to One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

Ooh, I do love spools! I made one spool quilt about two years ago, and when I can't decide what to sew, I'm tempted to start more. Yours look beautiful.

So many fun fabrics in those spools. Such a great way to use up absolutely everything!

That's going to be a great scrappy quilt! I can't believe you kept it up to make so many! What size are they?

Incredible assortment of scraps!! Have fun wrangling all those blocks into a quilt top!

Cathy said...

You Spool Girls are so ambitious! I know your quilt will be gorgeous riot of color. And I am so impressed with your sticktoit-iveness. Tiny scraps to a quilt - like a phoenix rising up out of the ashes!!

So many pretty spools! Love how one single block can make such completely different quilts. This block is on my someday list.... maybe next year's challenge? Good luck meeting your goals.

Holy cats, that's a lot of spools!
Between seeing yours and Kathy's, I might end up with some spools before the year is out. Because of course I needed another project...
