I’ve been looking for a quilt pattern to work on that I can hand piece and take my time with.  I love hand piecing in the evening.  I find it relaxing.  The Spools pattern is one that many quilters are working on right now.  It’s a possibility!  As I surf around the Internet though, I am finding many different variations on this pattern.  Some have more pieces than others.  Which to do?


Here is a lovely start that I found at Valentina’s Corner. spools8

Here are a variety of blocks I found at Google Images:

spools7  spools6

spools5 spools4    spools3 spools2 spools1

Have you made a Spool Quilt? If so, what pattern did you use?  5 pieces in the block? 13 pieces? 

Let us know by leaving a comment, below.

August Block of the Month Calendar

digg_url = “http://blog.caronmosey.com/2010/07/august-block-of-month-calendar.html”;digg_title = “August Block of the Month Calendar”;digg_bgcolor = “#FFFFFF”;digg_skin = “normal”;http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.jsdigg_url = undefined;digg_title = undefined;digg_bgcolor = undefined;digg_skin = undefined;

This block was made for my grandchildren, who will be going on their first camping trip this August.  I am hoping that this new generation brings the Mosey family better luck when it comes to camping.  When my boys were young, we went camping frequently.  It became the family joke:

Everytime the Mosey’s go camping and set up their tent, God starts laughing and says, “Let there be rain!”   And there was rain by the bucket-load.
