Spool Block #ModernQAL

It’s the second month of the Modern Block Quilt A Long over at And Sew We Craft. This month, is Spool Block month.

Spool Block by Samelia's Mum

This is my Spool block. The chevron is by Michael Miller and the spotty fabric on the top and bottom of the reel is a new fabric from Spotlight. I chose the chevron fabric to give the illusion of movement.

It was a very simple block to put together and the instructions are clear and concise.

Spool Block 2

Pop on over to And Sew We Craft for instructions by The Crafty Mummy on fabric requirements and measurements on how to make this block as well as the linky to join in the #ModernQAL fun.

Next month, is my month in the #ModernQAL and I will be sharing the step by step instructions of my chosen block… but I can’t tell you what it is just yet. That would spoil the surprise, wouldn’t it?
