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!

Great leader ender blocks. They scream sunshine.

Love that you are making this with leaders & enders. It's like making one quilt and getting another free!
Love your spools.... put them on my 'to do' list. Thanks for the link too....

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.

Great spools. I am getting close to finishing these and may need to find my next L and E project.

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.

Your yellow spools look great! :)

I think spools will be my next year's RSC challenge. They are so darn cute!
