Free Pattern Friday – Spools!

Freda’s Hive – String Spool Quilt
Sewing spool blocks has been popular for a while and I’m seeing them pop up more and more.  Here are a few patterns on making these striking quilts.

I never thought of using strings but I think it really works in a great way to evoke the whole “sewing spool” feel on each block.  

The way she added a string border really works with the whole quilt.  I love her design!
