Last year when Bonnie Hunter issued the Spools Leader-ender project I decided to play along……sort of. I had a basketful of Spools going already. Of course mine were twice the size but still Spools and a leader-ender project so it was just the nudge I needed to get moving on them again.
I’m not certain when I threw in the towel (again), but when she recently suggested a progress report I knew just where to look for this bag of half-finished spools!
There are about 190 6 inch (finished) blocks. I think I wanted about 240 to make a quilt about 120 inches square with no borders. My 4 patch blocks would make a 12 inch block and I need 100 blocks set 10 rows by 10 ….oh yeah, now I remember, after recalculating I need 400 blocks!
I cannot even think about how many I would need at the 4.5 inch size…..or (gasp) the 3 inch size!
So back into the bag….I’ll get back to it again, someday.
