    Split spool blocks quilt

    A group of 8 of us did a fabric exchange....we each exchanged 2 strips with each other for a total of 16 strips which made 32 blocks. I wanted my quilt bigger, and to add fabrics to blend the colors better, so added another 16 strips ( a friend for each of the other fabrics).
    We had a sewing day yesterday, and I finished my quilt top...here it is:

    Very nice! I like that block. Be sure and show us again when it's quilted, anxious to see it.

    The pattern is from here:
    http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/09...ocks-easy.html

    I have an omni ruler I used instead of the cardboard, but I am sure that would work too if you
    don't have a ruler. You need the ruler that does the quarter square triangle, not the
    one for half square triangles.

    It's great when folks get together for a project like this. I really like your results! Those old-fashioned blocks have stood the test of time.

    What a great result from your swap! Love the color combo and the pattern. Please show it to us again, once it is quilted. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!
