Today I get to share my Spool Souffle quilt with you. I have always wanted to make a spool quilt! I picked Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille to make this quilt. The pattern requires one layer cake. Pulling off the wrapper is the hardest part for me!
I’m going to call this quilt Plan C. Haha. I started this quilt with an idea in mind. I wanted to rainbowtize the spools. Before I sewed all of the tops and bottoms onto the spools, I laid them out. And I hated it! The low volumes completely disappeared! I kept trying to keep the pattern of the colors on the diagonal, but soon realized I needed to just scrap it.
So that’s what I did! And I went scrappy. And I totally love it! I’m glad I went with Plan C!
I love how the spool tops and bottoms showcase all the great low volumes in this line. The low volumes are some of my favorites and I wasn’t going to let them disappear!
I think this block is my favorite! That navy print is one of my favorite Bonnie and Camille prints ever! I should have bought a bolt!
I happen to run out of thread while sewing this quilt. Isn’t that ironic? (Or as my daughter says ‘coincidential’ -its her favorite word) I have started keeping track of how long it takes me to use a spool of thread on Instagram. Do you track your thread usage?
Thanks for stopping by!
