Spool Souffle Quilt

Today I am excited to share my newest finish, the Spool Souffle quilt and isn't it just so cute!!!    This is the newest Shortcut Quilt from the Fat Quarter Shop and I absolutely love these patterns.  They are so fun and fast to make!!   And these little spools are no exception, they go together in a blink of the eye and really are a whole lot of fun to make :)  And how perfect is this design for all of us quilters!!

For my quilt I decided to use a Tuppence Layer Cake by Shannon Gillman Orr.   I just love the beautiful floral prints and the wonderful colors.   They really made the spools pop!!  And as you can see,  this is a great design to really show off  those gorgeous medium size prints in the spool centers :)  Aren't they just so pretty!!!

I love the little cornerstones that break up the spools and decided to add those into the outer border as well, which is a slight variation from the original pattern :)  And I just happened to have a little bit of leftover yardage from V & C that matched perfect for the outer border and binding.   Isn't it just so fun when it works out like that!!!

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over open center swirl in my favorite 402 Pearl So Fine thread.  I was thinking more custom quilting but time ended up being the deciding factor on this one and these swirls quilt up super fast ;)   And like always with swirls, I just love it!!!  The texture is so great and the swirls give that extra movement that is just so fun :)

 And that is my Spool Souffle quilt!!!  If you would like to make your own Spool Souffle quilt you can find the free pattern here and the accompanying You Tube Video right here that walks you through putting it together ;)   And be sure to pop on over to the Jolly Jabber for lots more Spool Souffle Quilt finishes and inspiration!!!  You are going to have so much fun making this quilt!!!

Thanks for popping in today :)  I just love having this wonderful little corner of the internet to share my love of quilting with each of you and am so grateful for your visits each and every day!!!

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!

  1. I love your quilt. I was just thinking how great the thread would be made just like the pretty coral floral you enlarged in the picture. Its colors would be so fun for use in quilting...

  2. Cute spool quilt! What happened to the Terrific Tuesday giveaway day post? I can't find it.

  3. Awesome quilt!! Looks like the pattern could be scrap-friendly, as well.

  4. Melissa it is so so cute as you said. Spool SoufflĂ© just says “make me for a quilter” . Might just make this one for me with my Nlack Friday purchases:) Thankyou for sharing and I love the turquoise border too.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
