the spools {take two}

I decided to start making a new quilt for our bed on Sunday. The thought came out of nowhere, really. I have a list of projects I want to work on and a new queen sized quilt is surely not on it. Oh, well. I just decided to go with the flow and here' s my plan.


Yes, I know, you've seen this quilt pattern before. The quilt I made for my son was based on it. You might remember I decided not to follow the pattern and used my own stack and slash method (tutorial here). I like the way that quilt turned out, but this time I decided to replicate the colors and pattern much more closely.


These are the blocks I have finished so far and I'm totally loving all these bright, beautiful, summery colors together . I'm not doing a stack and slash method this time as I'm using a lot more different fabrics. I work on each block separately, I cut and sew as I go until each block measures 16" x 16". I need 25 blocks for the quilt, so I have quite a long way to go.

I'm hoping to get some sewing done when the kids are in bed. Wish me luck.
