Scrappy Saturday Spools #4


For the rest of the year, I am really trying to finish my scrappy spools quilt. You can read more about it in my post from the beginning of the month here. The picture does not reflect the effort, but it was a lot of thinking to get those bottom blocks right!
Once I finished the bottom of the quilt and filled in the setting blocks with spools and neutral squares, I moved over to the grey and black spools on the top right of the quilt edge.
Major progress! 
Here it is so far. I am really happy with it! You can see how it is bigger than my biggest design wall! There is only the bottom right corner to sort out now!

It's hard to keep focused on this huge project and I am constantly distracted by other more fun projects I could be working on. 

Wow I am easily distracted! 
Squirrel! 
Must keep focused!

  8. Love your spools! I would not have been able to keep them in the right place if I tried this with mine! No design wall here except for a little old cutting board propped against the wall with some batting on it for small picture taking. So congrats to you for keeping it all together!!!

  16. As someone with no medical training whatsoever, I must disagree with your diagnosis. My observations suggest that you have AQPCD: Amazing Quilt Prolific Creation Disorder. P.S. No payment required.

  17. A gorgeous RSC project. You've gotten a lot done. My challenge is getting the layout right, so you've gotten the hardest part done.
