"Vintage Spools Quilt"
Oh my .... I am in LOVE with this
Over Saturday afternoon through to Sunday I have managed to take this pile of blocks (below) and turn them into this Quilt Top above and I am wrapped with the outcome.
This is a picture (below) that I posted to Instagram at midnight Saturday.
Then on Sunday this started to happen and I was loving the results so much that I just kept going.
My dream of 100 different Liberty Lawn Spools has been realised.
I love how the different scrappy, tone on tone whites work in this quilt.
Now to find the perfect backing fabric and send her off to be quilted.
Next time you see her she will be all finished, I can't wait.
Pattern is from the "Liberty Love" Book
Finished size is 82" square
and is the second quilt I have made from this book.
Tip - When I decided I wanted to make this quilt and that I wanted 100 different Liberty prints for my spools I though that this meant I would have a long lead time and a huge expense as I "stashed the fabrics" to make this happen. If your familiar with Liberty Lawn fabrics then you know that FQ's can start around $12 and sky rocket upwards. I would suggest that you "stalk" ebay :o) I was lucky enough to find some "scrap packs". It was a little bit of a risk but one that payed off big time. My biggest find was from a seller in the UK. She had her packs listed in colour groups and with no duplicates. Happy hunting.
Did I mention that I LOVE this top?
Must go make a coffee and just sit and admire for a bit longer :o)
