Red + Aqua Springtime Spools

Red and Aqua Springtime Spools

one of my current ‘works in progress’.. i’d been collecting these red and aqua prints for a quilt, but what pattern..? half square triangles..? triangles..? nine patch..? i had no idea, until the other day when i was searching for inspiration and stumbled upon camille roskelley’s ‘Spools #154′ at Thimble Blossoms. a new adventure for me, since i’m fairly new to quilting and i’ve never pieced a spool quilt..

so i downloaded the pattern and went to town cutting. i’m not going to lie, i’m not a fan of those 64 pesky little 1 1/4″ squares that i had to sew onto the ends of the spools, but i got through it and now i’m moving onto piecing the spool together.

…and in case you didn’t notice, this is the same fabric in the 5 minute DIY jelly roll..
