I've been having fun sewing a secret project for Christa Watson's blog hop launching her new book: Piece and Quilt with Precuts. I picked her Spools pattern because I really enjoy freeform piecing and scrappy quilts. I chose Halloween fabrics for a fun revamp of the pattern and then I proceeded to really make the pattern my own by making it with TINY 2" blocks for a half size block of only 6 inches! And yes that is a lot of little pieces BUT you "make fabric" to cut the blocks form so it is easier that it looks.
And here's the reveal: MY SCARY SPOOLS
You'll have to stay tuned to see how I quilt it but I must note that Christa provides easy to follow detailed piecing and quilting directions and there are projects to keep all skills levels happy.
