A couple of years ago, Bonnie Hunter issued a challenge to make Spool blocks as “leaders and enders”.
I’ve long embraced the principle that one always has another seam to feed into the machine to avoid wasting that few inches of thread between pieces, so I was quite happy to start making 3” spool blocks.
But I also had a good collection of squares, so I made 3” nine-patch blocks as well. (Yes, a few of those one inch squares are pieced – mustn’t waste fabric, you know!)
I decided that the blocks could play happily together, and I started turning them into these:
But maybe they could go on point.
No need to decide yet, I suppose. There are still mounds of fabric to work through before I have enough for a quilt top.
