Earlier this year I had an idea that it would be fun to make a group quilt version of the Tumbling Spools Quilt. The original just has a column of 6 spools and then the words on the right. I contacted all the people who had bought a copy of the pattern and asked them if they would like to contribute to a group quilt to enter into Festival of Quilts.
I was blown away at the response. Thirty lovely people wanted to be involved. So I set about designing a layout to incorporate lots of spools.
I gave contributors a block or two to make and gave guidelines on the colours to use. I had a couple for the back so I could put a custom label on it.
Some people chose to add their name, country or Instagram name to their spool.
Thank you so much to all the contributors to this quilt. I was incredibly happy to see that we got a Highly Commended Badge for our efforts!
