This design was a result of being sent some in black and yellow, a colour palette that is a favourite of mine. I have always liked the simplicity of spools for a quilt so designed this quilt with that block with a modern contemporary twist.
The tops and bottoms of the spools are in a toile fabric which is in direct contrast to the modern prints used for the body of the spool and it worked really well. I then quilted it all over in a large spiral.
This quilt features in this months Hand made magazine and the design will be for sale in a few months time.
