20 Years of KTQ BOM Week #12

Week #12 - Spools

This week's block is one of my new favorites. I've used it in the BOM, on a pincushion and charm quilt. It's a fun block to piece. The only tricky part? The tiny connecting corners on the top and bottom of the spool. If you use the connecting corners guide in the BOM instructions, there's nothing tricky about it. It's all about precise marking, stitching and pressing.

Here's the page I've included with several of my patterns, including the BOM, on how I cut & piece half square triangles (HST) and connecting corners (CC). Find the printable version HERE.

Here are the Basics -
1. Mark the diagonal line carefully from point to point. The smaller the square, the more important it is to mark accurately.

2. Stitch on the drawn line; fold square toward corner to test for accuracy. If the triangle point is a bit short (doesn't match up to the background rectangle corner), stitch a thread's width inside the drawn line toward the corner for a better fit.

3. Trim the background and square seam allowances to 1/4". Press seams open for less bulk.

4. Assemble the spool block.

That's all there is to it! For more scrappy spool inspiration, I pieced 1/4" strips for the "thread" center in a couple of other projects. Sew What is a charm quilt that features scrappy spools and a single tomato pincushion for fun.

If you have the 20 Years of KTQ BOM pattern packet, you should be receiving the bonus pattern A Few Little Extras with the Spool Pincushion and two pillows.

And finally, introducing a new KT booklet, Stick a Pin in It, with a dozen adorable seasonal pincushions, coming in July.

Stick a Pin in It - Coming Soon

This booklet includes the tomato pincushion, a strippy flag, pumpkin, flying geese, flower, basket, star, candy cane Christmas and this spool pincushion, inspired by the original spool block in the BOM quilt. Each one takes about an hour to make and are great bowl fillers or gifts for sewing friends. Watch for Stick a Pin in It right here in a couple weeks.

  7. When I found Dr. OSOFO I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another man. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr.OSOFO through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortlay after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what  he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me  than before. Ever since Dr. OSOFO helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. OSOFO to anyone in need of help.

  10. EFFECTIVE LOVE SPELL TO GET EX HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND OR EX WIFE/GIRLFRIEND AND CURE HERPES AND INFERTILITY THAT WORKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.

     Contact Dr. Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.  

    Contact his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

     OR Whats App/Call +2348167159012 and you too will give a testimony too to help others
