"Sew Simple"

I made a small spool wall hanging to go with my larger spool quilt.  I just love spools, don't you!

I purchased this pattern from  Prairie Stitches Quilt Shoppe is located in Oswego IL.  It is a wonderful shop with many treasures on shelves and in nooks.  The pattern is designed by Buttermilk Basin and is from their "Sew" Simple BOM collection.  The block finished to about 6" square and is very quickly sewn together.  They designed it to use wool for the applique, but since I am allergic to wool, I used a cotton fabric for my scissors.  You can choose to finish this small block as a wall hanging, as I did, or as a pin cushion.  I think it would work well for a coaster too.

I had "sew" much fun making this cute little spool.  My spools are perfect hanging over my cutting table!

Happy Sewing,
