One of my favorite things in the world, is giving handmade gifts. I have always loved it, but even more so since I started sewing. Last year, I made quilts for almost all of my siblings (still working on one more). It was so much fun practicing my quilting skills and learning new things along the way.
Just after Halloween, I got the opportunity to head to Nashville to pick up my sister who had been serving a mission for our church for the past 18 months. It was the perfect time to take her the quilt I had been working on for her.
I used the Spools quilt pattern by the very talented Camille Roskelley. I loved this pattern so much! It was a lot of fun to piece... I got a little crazy with it and added a scrappy border just for fun.
I used a Moda Sophie layer cake for the "thread" on the spools and the scrappy border and then used some solid and gingham printed linen for the "wooden spools".
