Stacked Spools: Another Quilt is Done!



I finally made the time to put the binding on this Spools wallhanging that I started in 2022. This beautiful wallhanging (for the wall above my machine in my upstairs sewing room) was sewn with Riley Blank fabrics from 2018 - a collection that I love and also used to make the double wedding ring quilt I finished a few years ago.


This quilt used a pattern by Figtree Quilts and the back is a Jelly Roll Race (from Missouri Star Quilt Company).


I'm glad I was able to use up most of that remaining fabric (I still had an extra jelly roll and a layer cake, and some yardage). And I've decided I won't be doing another Jelly Roll race, any time soon! (Not my favorite to sew, though I did see a fun giant spool made with one as the thread on the spool!)


I think this one was quilted by Wildflower Quilts, and has a fun sewing theme with thread, thimbles and needles meandering around. It's got a beige-grey thread, so the pattern shows up pretty well, in person.

After watching countless videos about machine binding a quilt, I finally decided to follow Corey Yoder's (Coriander Quilts) instructions, with 2.25" wide binding, sewn to the back and then brought around to the front. That way, you can focus on lining the front up exactly as you want it, and the uglier part goes to the back.


I'm thrilled this is done and now need to work on how I want to hang it!


Thanks for stopping by!
