Welcome to Coats and Clark 200th Anniversary Quilt Along.
Coats and Clark asked me to design an quilt to celebrate their two centuries of providing quality threads to sewers, crafters and quilters. What pattern could be more appropriate than the spool block? Celebrate with Coats and Clark by making this quilt and be sure to share your progress with us by commenting here on the blog.
Block #7 is fun and colorful. There’s lots of cutting and piecing, but the result is worth it. This design would also look great as an accent pillow.
Be sure to come back and get the directions for Spool Block #8 in October.
Just getting started? Here are the complete instructions thus far.

The finished quilt is approximately 72″ x 72″ and the finished block size: 12″ x 12″
