Round #1

Roseanne & Sue @ Home Sewn by Us have chosen Spools for the first round! I must admit that I don’t think I’ve ever made a spool block before!

I continued to use Island Batik fabrics from the Baby Bloomers collection (by Kathy Engle for Karen Overton).

Now, you Need to go to the co-hosts blogs and see their first rounds! Their links are in the schedule below.

How I made my spool blocks

The half square triangles are tiny … they finish at 1″ …. so they are 1 1/2” unfinished … the blocks below the top HST are 1 1/2” square, unfinished and the center column is 1 1/2” x 3 1/2” unfinished … the whole block will finish at 3″ …

Linky Party

Roseanne & Sue @ Home Sewn by Us will have a linky party so you can see everyone’s 1st Round!

More Centre Blocks

Some people are participating in the SAHRR, but don’t do social media … so I and another hosting blogger are posting their blocks for them … It’ll be fun to see how these blocks grow into their own quilts!

    • Thanks, Kate! Well, if you’ve got your fabrics cut, you’re well on the way to having some spool blocks!
      Yes, there are many many fun centres for the SAHRR! It’s going to be fun to see how they grow!


  1. Good morning, Gail! I had never made the Spool block before until now. Not only that, but my spool block is just as tiny as yours. I had wanted to make the center piece one rectangle but there was a miscommunication with the cutting department (Sue). HAHA! All those little pieces! Nice job. Your center block is offset quite nicely. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
