The Spools Guild Challenge

The Great Lakes Heritage Quilters held their last meeting and potluck dinner last Thursday.   This years Challenge was to make a quilt using Spools.

Here are a few photos of the quilts from my Sewing Group that I quilted.

This is Amy’s Spools Quilt. The larger spools are pieced and the smaller ones are embroidery.  The quilting design is Simply Squared.

This Hawaiian Wallhanging is Cathy’s. This is her first Custom quilted quilt. The thread is neon orange.

Martha’s quilt is a mix of spools and log cabin blocks. The color of her fabrics is striking in person. The quilting design on hers is Brittany B2B.

The last one is my own quilt. I pieced this top in 2011 and have stalled on quilting it. I used a digital rose that I designed and custom quilted it. It has wool batting. Its nice to finally have it finished and out of the closet.
