Scrappy Spool Mini Quilt
I made this for the My Favorite Little Quilt Swap. Totally crazy to do at this time of year, but it was a nice little break to sit down and sew up this fun spool.
It only measures about 17"x20", and I used up a bunch of little strips from my overflowing scraps.
I made this aqua one a while ago to hang in my sewing room and had so much fun with it, I wanted to make another one. This one is made with fabric selvedges.
I used the quilt-as-you-go method for this again, and what I love the most is that you don't have to get up to iron. Each strip you turn over and quilt it down so it lays flat. I just love doing random stuff like this. Get a big pile of scraps and pull one out. Pull another one out and sew it on. It's just liberating to put all these totally unrelated fabrics together...
Just a little sneak peak of the next project. It's already in it's new home, so I'll show you more later.
