Spool Race…

WOW! That’s a great name for a quilt, but today it was exactly where I was! The spool for the top thread was in a fast race with the bobbin thread! The spool won, but only by a couple inches. I love watching them wind off the ends. It makes me feel like I accomplished something, having a bit of fun along the way.

Wonder which will win…. spool or bobbin???

BUT! Now that I have the inspiration from the name of this post; I will hit the grid paper, vintage block books, and grab the coloured pencils for a new design… how many spool variations can we find, create, rotate, saturate, or minutely change for an amazing design. I am excited to see what I can come up with. Please share your favourite spool block with me, to help keep the inspiration flowing and the designs “winding off” the design boards.

Follow me on Instagram for daily updates, what I am working on with Stitch and Bobbin pics along the way. Also, join our Facebook group for community interaction, help, and love. We have so much fun there. Can’t wait to meet you!
