Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap

Round 2 of the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap has wrapped up. I wasn't going to participate in this round... too much going on, too many projects in the works... but at the very last minute I jumped in.

I didn't have a whole lot of specific direction from my partner. And when I'm left to my own devices I often trip myself up by overthinking the options. This time I found my inspiration early on.

Selvedge Spool

I have these super-wonderful friends that save their selvedges for me, so I'm always looking for fun things to do with them. Selvedges and Spools seemed like the perfect combination!

Selvedge Spool - labels

Originally I was going to use the pattern in the Liberty Love book, but I already had a bunch of selvedges cut - larger than the pattern called for, and I didn't feel like re-cutting them. So I figured out my block size based on what I had. And I love how they turned out! I think I need to make a single spool for myself - a little addition to my sewing room wall of mini quilts.

And the quilt I received from my partner... AWESOME!! How cute is this little fox?!?
