New Quilt Blocks

Remember last week when I cleaned and straightened my fabric shelves?  Since my shelves were color organized, it inspired me to do a new quilt--thread spools!  Perfect for a sewer like me!

Here are the blocks that I have finished this week.To be honest, I saw something like this in a catalog, I didn't like the way it was symmetrical, so  I made my own pattern.  I am very partial to crazy quilting and scrap quilting, and this pattern lends itself very well, looking like the thread wrapped around the spools!

I used scraps and small pieces from my stash. Sewed the strips together in random order, until I could get approximately the right size,

then I added the white side pieces, cut off the excess and added the spool top and bottom pieces,  

I am very pleased with my blocks thus far--will share further, when I get them all arranged in the quilt top.
