Happy Tuesday everyone! Are you excited to get another block in the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ Journey? I know I’m always excited. Today – the block comes from Yours Truly! Before we get to my block I’m going to answer the questions just like I make everyone else!
What is your favorite thing about Quilt Alongs?
Quilt Along’s have helped me improve my piecing skills DRASTICALLY. I love that you learn new techniques, different tips and tricks from a variety of quilters, and that it is spread out over a period of time. There’s very little pressure for me sew an entire quilt – just a block or two or four at a time.
When you look at your quilts – what color do you seem to use the most of?
I’m trying to figure out what color I don’t see…
When you look at your fabric stash – what color do you seem to have the most of?
blues and greens…I’m on a blue and green diet for a bit here now…
What other quilt alongs are you participating in in 2013?
#scrappytripalong, Craftsy BOM, Dancing Stars QAL, I hope to to catch up with the ‘Skill Builder’s’ one in April…pretty much any and all I can manage to fit in…you can see the right side of my blog for links of all the ones I’ve either done, am working on or intend to do.
Apples or oranges?
Apples of course!
Strippy Spool Block Tutorial for the My Favorite Block Quilt Along
Finished Block Size – 12” x 12” & 6” x 6”
It was hard to pick just ONE favorite block…but I finally had an epiphany and realized I just had to show you all how to make the Spool Block.
Not only did I have a fabulous ‘Wall of Thread’ in my house but I also love thread so much
I had a spool tattooed onto my wrist for my 30th birthday last year! (and yes…it hurt)
I am putting a slight scrappy twist to the block just to add some fun for you all. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for sharing the Spool Block! I made it in the 6 inch and the 12 inch! And super thanks for doing the Quilt Along! I just hopped around to all the past blocks and made sure I thanked them all for sharing! When I left a comment this morning, I realized I had missed a few thank yous! Thanks so much!
