Scrappy Saturday Spools
Since returning from quilt camp, I am continuing to work on piecing together my scrappy rainbow spools. However, my design wall is not big enough to hold all these blocks and rows, so only part of the quilt can be on the design wall at one time. This is how it looked while I worked on the top edge. It's such a pretty photo... the rows look like ribbons of colour hanging down, don't you think?!?
Maybe I should just leave it like this?!? LOL
I had enough extra coloured spools pieced to fill in the setting blocks across the top. But I did not have any extra grey/black spools made to fill in the right side of the quilt so I have to make more spools.
I also do not have my friend Barb here today to organize me like she did when I was at quilt camp! So this is how it's looking at the moment.
Two edges of the layout are done (left and top, and currently sitting on the kitchen floor), and I have two more edges to figure out (right and bottom). Today I will work on the right side, and eventually will tackle the bottom edge of the quilt.
Then I will finally join all these rows together, matching the bazillion seam joins. As always, I did not anticipate the amount of time and effort this layout is requiring. Hopefully I will find that it is all worth it in the end :)
While sewing the setting blocks, I have made a few more brown leader/ender Alamo Stars.
