Just Spoolin Around...

When I saw this quilt in the summer issue of "Primitive Quilts and Projects" magazine I knew that I had to make it! My sewing table was full of scraps and I could see all the great spools that they would make. The background is a primitive tea stained fabric that I have at the shop and I love using it. The applique pieces are wool that are hand stitched with pearl cotton and floss. The quilt in the magazine has a saying stitched around the spools, but I decided not to put it on mine. So get busy, rummage thru your fabric stash and make this whimsical quilt. Wouldn't it look great in your sewing room or draped over an old sewing machine!! AND....Dont forget that my quilt project " SWEET PICKINS" is coming out in the Fall issue of " Primitive Quilts & Projects" magazine. Happy Stitching, Peg


  1. Congratulations to you, Peg!! How exciting that you are having a quilt project in Primitive Quilts & Projects!!! Can't wait to get my fall issue now. So awesome.

    Your spools quilt came out beautiful. Love the applique on that quilt. I have always been a sucker for spools.

    1. Julie....Thank you so much for all the lovely comments.


  2. Hello peg - a friend just bought me this magazine from the States and friends are already drooling over this little quilt pattern! Definitely inspired after seeing yours - think your lovely muted border really makes it. Haven't seen this mag here in the UK but will seek it out now.
