My RSC goal for this month was to finish sewing together my scrappy spools quilt top.
Drum roll please....mission accomplished!
There are 612 scrappy spool blocks in this quilt!
I don't mind saying that was a lot of hard work to get this quilt top together and I appreciate those of you who have put up with my complaining over the past few weeks on the RSC link up posts. Thank you for all the encouraging comments and emails!
There were so many seams to match from blocks made over the last 3 1/2 years. I started making spool blocks in July 2013 (read about it here).
I started working on the layout in April 2015, but it was hard work and required concentration I didn't have at that time. I took it to quilt camp in February this year and with the encouragement and organizational assistance of my fellow quilters, I got the top organized, photos taken, and some momentum going to make more progress on this thing.
When I commit to doing something, I do it! And in spite of all the distractions, other projects, and preparations for Christmas, I met my goal and finished this top. Can you tell I am excited?!?
Now I am thinking about how to quilt it. I have a few ideas, but will put off making that decision until the New Year.
