Amber's theme for Ringo Pie in April was 'Sewing' and I have just finished her block- a Rainbow Rack of Spools. Sewing is always a great theme and has brought inspirational blocks from Ringo Pie members!
All freezer paper pieced, the same method that I did at the Fat QuarterlyRetreat- and there are more spool patterns and how to do Y seams in the Fat Quarterly Retreat issue- available here!
I love spools, I never tire of them, even with all the Y seams- practice really helps. I added a few Aurifil spools here too, in amongst the wooden ones! I am working on a pattern for this and variations with Penny for a mini sewing starter themed set for Sew-Ichigo- more news soon!
