Working on not 1 but 2 Spools quilts ...

Making some progress on my SPOOLS quilts !

The fabric I chose for my 2 SPOOLS quilts is : Fig & Plum by Fig Tree quilts and Petite Odile by French General. Cathy whose blog is Quilting on  Main Street  was kind enough to give me her cutting directions to make each quilt from just 1 charm pack. I already had the pattern but wanted my quilts to be a smaller wall hangings.  The finished size will be 28" x 30". All of my center spools are all sewn together. The Petite Odile on the right has the side strips sewn on and that spool top & bottoms cut out. These have been really fun to make.  Thelma is having a sew along for the SPOOLS quilt.  You should join the fun !  I am already thinking of more to make for gifts !  Who wouldn't want this SPOOLS quilt hanging in their sewing room !

I have not been home much this last week. I did go down to the Bay Area shopping and found my Mother of the bride dress, shoes, necklace , bracelet , earrings and evening bag. I am so glad that is done ! My daughters wedding is November 3rd . I can't wait ! I have not been able to finish my Spools quilts because I have been having problems with my desktop computer and now my mouse will not work on my laptop . When it rain it pours :-(


  1. Wow, two quilts at once! Both color combos look great. And getting your mother-of-the-bride outfit taken care of - that must feel good. Iit was hard enough for me when I was just aunt-of-the-bride!

  2. Lovely spool blocks Sue!
    I'm happy for you that you've gotten your outfit picked out for the wedding! Such an important task and definately not always an easy one.
    Hope you can resolve your computer issues quickly!

  3. Your spool blocks are wonderful! Wow, sounds like a very successful shopping trip. Just around the corner now.

  4. Lovely spool blocks, Sue. Wonderful that you found your dress for a very special day in your family...and soon!

    Hugs, Carolyn
