I have decided that I want to do a spool quilt. I got my inspiration from this and this. Here are two of my finished blocks.
The grey is supposed to be on top but I can't get the picture to rotate!
Anyhow….. I would like you to follow this tutorial.
Instead of using a 4 1/2 inch square of fabric I would like you to use several different strips of fabric like a string quilt.
You will need to cut the following for each block:
2- 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" white rectangles (Pure white.. no tone on tone or cream please.)
4- 2 1/2"x 2 1/2" white squares
2- 1 1/2"x 6 1/2" solid grey rectangles
1- 4 1/2" string square.
Please make 2 blocks. Here are some pictures of the colors in my sewing room. I just want them to be bright, cheerful, and modern. No dark reproduction prints please. I do like 1930's so that is ok.
