Rainbow Rack of Spools

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!

Rainbow Spools Rack
All freezer paper pieced, the same method that I did at the Fat Quarterly Retreat- and there are more spool patterns and how to do Y seams in the Fat Quarterly Retreat issue- available here!
Rainbow Spools Rack
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!

  20. If I could pin this I would. I have about 10 blogs that are "treat" blogs. It is like a treat to go there because there is always something wonderful I love there. Your blog is one of my treat blogs. It is such a treat to see what you have made.

  21. I looove this block, Kerry! If I were you I wouldn't be able to part with it. I'd hang it on the wall instead. So cute to see Auriful threads being a part of the vintage spools!!
