Empty Spools

 
Hi!  If you enjoy this blog, please become
a follower, I need to know if anyone is out
there using these tutorials!  And pop on over
to the American Homestead blog and see what
is going on in my life.  All the best!  ~ Ellen
 

This is a fun block!
 

Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: Dark (Red)
2 - 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles
1 - 4 1/2" square

Fabric B: Light (White print)
4 - 2 1/2" squares - Mark
a diagonal line on the back.
2 - 2 1/2" x  4 1/2" rectangles


Layout 4 1/2" square and 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
rectangles as shown and sew together.



Place 2 1/2" squares right sides together
with 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles as shown.
Sew on drawn line and press to the corners.


Trim back 2 layers of fabric to 1/4".


Layout units as shown and sew together,
  press seams open to reduce bulk. 


Square to 8 1/2".
 

And a full spool.


It would make a pretty quilt.


I like it even better with sashing.
