Spooliing around...

OK! According to the scientific method, this is how many blocks go in a spool quilt. The container is full! I did the last 40 today...it took me exactly forever. Why it took so long, I do not know!! Just did...I really love these blocks!
Thank you, Terry! I won a book on her blog...and am already 80 pages into it...it is really a good book! And look at the pretty page marker too...it has pretty fringe attached and I love that touch. Thank you again, Terry.
This is a scary sight...my husband work gloves got wet, so I washed them (they still look the same as before...), and put them over bottles so they would dry. This reminds me of our friend Kim, of Kim's Big Quilting Adventure...she loves halloweenish stuff!!



Have a wonderful week!!

Love your "scientific method" of calculating required number of blocks in a quilt! LOL

The spools are quite wonderful but the gloves are unbelievable ;) Don't ever throw them or any others out. I've got a fun project for you to make with them!

Is there any other method besides the scientific method?! :)

Assemby time! It will be exciting to see what that spooling box turns into. Your "scientific method" makes me laugh, by the way. It sounds too much like someone I know very well.

Why the spools took you so long? I definitely know - because you have to look and drool and admire, and touch and feel them along the way. Some of my blocks are practically worn out from my admring them! LOL I finally figured out why it takes ME a long time to make blocks! LOL
