Modern Spools

Every now and then I am lucky enough for a magazine to send me a stack of fat quarters to play with.

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.
