Spoolin’ around

  • Started: 2015-ish
  • Finished (top only): February 27, 2021
  • Size: about 94″ square.

This is the Spoolin’ Around quilt, pattern by Bonnie Hunter. This took me around 40-50 hours to just cut it all out! But I love cutting, so that was no big deal. The colorful part of every spool is different, so there are over 650 different fabrics in this quilt. I like that it’s a snapshot of my stash from around 2015.

The center spool part was finished for years at an awkward size but I couldn’t figure out what to do to make it bigger without being distracting. I eventually settled on just a plain set of borders.
