Scrappy Spool Quilt Kit with Fort Worth Fabric Studio


When Jodie at Fort Worth Fabric Studio asked if I wanted to sew the sample quilt for the Scrappy Spool Kit....I was like....YES! Patchwork squares plus dots, stripes, and floral fabrics makes me so happy! I love happy sewing!

Ready for some hints to sew your own Scrappy Spool Quilt31.5" X 39.25"
Let's get sewing.


1. Per pattern and cutting guide- Cut your fabrics into 2.5" squares. Sew (8) half-square triangles.
2. Place 2.5" squares onto grid interfacing. Note the small gap (that is okay and will be in the sewn seam). I only placed enough squares on the interfacing that would fit on my ironing board. Then iron/fuse into place. Repeat.

3. To attach second section of interfacing- align grid lines and use a washable glue stick (I just used Elmer's school glue stick) to hold them together. Continue adding squares and iron/fuse sections together.


4. Fold and sew with a 1/4" seam. Sew all seams one direction - then snip and sew all seams the other direction. Be sure to watch the videos by TenSisters - here.
5. Look at all the perfect seams that match!!! Yay!!!


6. Quilt and bind. I would recommend simple quilting as there is a bit of bulk with the seams with fabric and grid interfacing. I chose to stipple mine. This Bonnie & Camille bias stripe fabric for the binding is perfect!


Time to enjoy your Scrappy Spool Quilt!!!!


I wanted to share some extra pictures that shows the super cute binding and backing fabrics that are included in the kit!



I loved sewing my Scrappy Spool Quilt! Plus I loved learning a new sewing technique- grid patchwork interfacing- it is magic sewing for perfect seams!!!

Be sure to purchase your Scrappy Spook Kit here at Fort Worth Fabric Studio before they sell out! Don't forget the kit includes everything for the Quilt Top, Binding, and Backing! I love a kit that is complete so you can just start sewing!

  2. So cute! I did a mini spool quilt for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This would look so cute as a complimentary quilt! Never thought of using squares for the thread...I used strings.
