Scrappy Saturday

My newest leader-ender project is 3" spool blocks. After years of quilt making I have quite a vast  hoard collection of small scraps that are perfect for sewing these blocks.
Here are the yellow spool blocks I have made so far this month (pattern and inspiration by Bonnie Hunter). It is fun to watch them accumulate over the month as I add each one to the top of my design wall!

  11. Love that you are making this with leaders & enders. It's like making one quilt and getting another free!

  12. I love when I have a project that works well with leaders and enders. Unfortunately, the idea of a 3 inch block makes me weak in the knees.

  14. There is a fine line between hoard and collection. As long as you keep using it I think it falls on the good side though.
