We’re all just spoolin’ around!

 I’m loving seeing the different Spoolin’ Around blocks from the And Sew On BoM popping up in Flickr and in the linky party!

Here are a couple that have caught my eye so far.

Mary's block

Mary’s block: Love the textured fabrics for the “thread” part of the spools!

Susies' block

Susie’s block features fussy cutting on the spools – cute!

Anita's block

Anita used selvedges on the tops and bottoms of her spools. I’m a sucker for some selvedge incorporation!

Wendy's block

And here’s Wendy’s (or Derek as I sometimes like to call her Winking smile ) version all in solids!

How are you going with your block? Still some time to get it made and added to the linky party! You don’t want to miss out – some really fabulous prizes up on offer!

A Japanese fabric bundle from Blossom Heart Quilts

A 2wentyThr3e charm pack from Fat Quarter Shop

1 scrap pack from Fabricworm

All you have to do for a chance at one of these is download the free pattern in my Craftsy store, piece it together, take a photo and link it up to the linky party! Too easy! Looking forward to seeing what you make! Winking smile


  1. Loving the spools Kristy!!

  2. These all look terrific! Thanks for the reminder, I finished mine ages ago and totally forgot about linking up!

  3. Hi Kristy, I missed the February block because I wasn't feeling good but I'm still motivated to sew the March one. Seeing all these just makes me want to try it, too.

  4. Oooh, they all look great! I have started to pull fabric, but haven't switched the machine on in over a week - school holidays start on Friday, yippee!

  5. Thanks for the reminder! I will try to get mine done this week, I actually keep forgeting!

  6. Fingers crossed the printer joins the land of the living on Monday and I can get the pattern printed out!

    Loving all the variations on the block.

  7. hurry up April, Derek can't wait for the next one!

  8. Ahh I am behind in my BOM making!

  9. Oops - I sewed the left side to the wrong side so my spool is leaning against nothing! hahaha Funny though - I didn't see that it was wrong until I took a photo and posted it up here!! I will unpick and re-sew.

  10. I know I'm terribly late but I did it :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every word! I'll do my best to reply to them either via email or here on the blog, when time permits!
