Wednesday W.I.P....

This W.I.P.(work in progress) is my latest on the design wall...teeny little quilty blocks that I call "bobbins".


I have been using my scrappy stash of 1 1/2" strips to make them.
They're so fun to make!...all in different shades just like the wound-up bobbins full of colorful threads in my sewing drawer:)

And where do bobbins come from?...Spools of course!
I've also been making larger blocks that I call "spools".


I've been making the spools using my scrappy stash of 2 1/2" strips...

I like the way that they are looking when placed together...how about you?
So quilty and vintagey scrappy at the same time.

I've been using a fun and easy tool to help me make them ... hopefully I'll be able to share it with you next week.
When I've made enough "Bobbins and Spools"...I'll put them together (I have several options in mind)...and add a pieced border.
I'd love to hear what you have going on todayI hope its a quilty one!
Do you have a Wednesday W.I.P???


Pin It!

Those are darling! What a great way to use up some tiny strips. I have two new patterns rolling around in my head that I am getting out :)

Very sweet, Lori.

I don't have a Wednesday WIP because I haven't been doing much sewing lately. :-(

One of my all time favorite blocks! I just finished the binding last night for my quilt using the same block. I'm ready to make another one! Love your combination of large and small blocks.

Love this. Really like the two blocks together. Where do I get the pattern or will it be one of yours? I will be pressing some backing fabric and doing some cutting.

Lori, I love your little Bobbins & Spools. I have so many strips this would be perfect. W.I.P. on my end are two quilts trying to finish up and a pillow for the baby quilt to match, hair cut and drive out to get ready for show.

I love your bobbins and spools! I'm working on some mug rugs for my daughters and the boyfriends. Using up lots of scraps since they're small and very freeform.

I love the Bobbins & Spools! For that matter, I love everything you make!

My Wednesday W.I.P is finishing up some quilt tops for Project Linus. I should have 14 to take to the coordinator at our LQS tomorrow.

"spools" is a much cuter name for them.

Rae Ann said...

How cute is that! Love the spools and bobbins together. I might have to make one of those!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Love the spools. I love to see what you are up to. So I'm glad you have something SEW fun to show us, despite your occupation with fabric designs.

Love this quilt Lori. I'm here visiting your blog looking for color inspiration for a project we're doing in a quilt group I'm in. Your quilts are just happy and I love your style. Thanks for a great blog!
