I was a bit late joining the Modern Blocks QAL, so that it was already the end on May before I started my first block and the second block was being released. This meant that I completed a block two nights running!
This month’s block is called Spool because it’s meant to look like a cotton reel/spool. The tutorial was posted over on The Crafty Mummy.
It was soo much easier than the May block. I enjoyed making it because I had a much better idea of what I was doing and knew it would turn out OK. It consisted of making 5 rows and then sewing all the rows together – all straight lines and no diagonals!
I’m using these spotty fabrics with a white background so I decided to choose some different colours of it this month and went with grey for the main block and yellow for the two ends.
It turned out quite well. Here is my finished block:
You can see all the other blocks that people have created over on the Modern QAL Block 2 Linky Party.
I wonder what my July block will look like?!
