Zaterdag = Klosjes Dag / Saturday = Spools Day

Today, 17 new klosjes/spools happily joined
the 8 existing ones
TOTAL = 25
;>)

I'm really enjoying handpiecing these cuties,
using some repro. fabrics I've got on hand,
and mixing them together with some others...
One by one, one stitch at a time,
I'll reach the 600 I need,
I'm not in a hurry,
it's just relaxing and fun piecing....

Until next Saturday,

ENJOY YOUR STITCHING !

"ZATERDAG = KLOSJES DAG !"...

... Or, if you prefer :
"SATURDAY = SPOOLS DAY !"
;>)
Some time ago, I discovered THIS Dutch blog
and I was sooo much inspired...
Can you imagine that Ingrid is only piecing by hand
No sewing machine with her (here's a girl to my heart!)
Among all the beautiful quilts and projects, were those tiny spools.
These cuties measure (approx) 2.5" finished size
and I'm sure they are going to make such gorgeous scrappy quilts !
I couldn't resist having a try, and here are my first attempts...
Together with my friend Valentina,
we were VERY tempted starting such a (long term) project,
so we decided to contact Ingrid for permission
to use her idea...
Well, not only did she agree with such kindness
and enthusiasm, but she welcomes us into her virtual
"Spools Project Group"
Quilters are such wonderful ladies, all over the world!
Our Dutch friends are devoting one day a week
to this adventure (guess which one ? LOL)
I bet I'm gonna write about spools
for a veeeeeery long time!
