Design Wall Monday Feb 4th
I have started to take some of the pink blocks down. I thought I would play with my spools. I have been using the spool block as a Leaders and Enders project for 6 months. To see more about this and to get the free pattern go see Bonnie Hunter's Blog Quiltville. I wanted to play and see how I could move from one colour family to the other. You can see how I moved from blue to pink. The movement from orange to pink is much more blended but is the same every other block as the blue to pink. So far I only have some blue, pink, orange and brown on the wall. I have a stack of black blocks made but not on the wall. I was running out of room. This spools quilt is going to be big, I think. I am trying to do it like a charm quilt with no fabric repeated. I found one repeat in blue today.
I got some really good quilt News this weekend. My entry to the Canadian National Juried Show got accepted. I will show if off around May 16th when the National Juried show opens. I am hoping to go to the opening in person that night. Mom and I and a friend are making plans to go.
I have added today's post to Judy's Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.
