Gosh time flies. 18th of February already? Only ten days to March? I must getting old…
But I have made my February blocks for the Modern Irish Quilting Bee. This month’s hive mama is Cindy of Fluffy Sheep quilting. Cindy has a lovely shop online which I go for the modern fabric shopping.
Cindy was talking about spool blocks a lot since the beginning of the year which made me wanted to make my own spool block. But this is the real one I had to make ones she wants.
Cindy choose the “Aurifil spool” for us to make. I never even imagined to make Aurifil spools for the blocks. Very very different and so cute. Here is the instruction. To my surprise somebody had already made them.
I had two options for the sizes of blocks and I chose one big, three medium and five small to make.
Cutting Kona red for spool itself and Kona white for the background was easy.
Then I realized the how big the big one was. 6″ by 10.5″! I don’t really use big prints and this is ginormous for me. Cindy wanted fabrics for the thread bit to bi monochromatic. I had to deep very deep in my stash box.
And these are the finished blocks.
I posted them to Cindy yesterday afternoon and she got them before lunch time today! Sometime post system here works scary fast!
I am happy to hear she is happy with them 🙂 Now I’m off to my own project.
