#PieceAndQuiltHopAlong :: Ta da!

#PieceAndQuiltHopAlong Spools Reveal!

Good morning, quilty friends! 

Are you ready? Spools (pattern by Christa Watson) has been a work in progress for 5 weeks, and now it's done and ready to head to market! Its time for the big reveal-- of the quilt and of our two giveaway winners!

So, drumroll please!

#PieceAndQuiltHopAlong Spools Reveal!

Ta da! I'm not sure exactly how many hours of quilting are in this little piece (it's only about 45 inches square), but it's a lot. I made videos while I worked, I talked about graffiti quilting, a quilting plan, and developing free motion quilting skills. In fact, I even took it to an event in my city and got to share about quilting with a lot of local kids. All in all, what I'm saying is that my favorite part of this quilt has been sharing it with YOU! I hope you feel like you've been part of this project because you ARE. Thank you!
