A Little After the Fact – A Spool Block Setting Idea

Posted by on January 3, 2010 in blocks | 2 comments

I went searching for something else and found this photo that I had saved for a 2-block Lotto idea. Wish I’d remembered it in November, when we were making the spool blocks.

Although I don’t think this quilt was constructed that way, one could make it by putting the spool blocks on point and alternating with blocks that are quarter-square-triangles framed with strips of background fabric. At least that’s how I envisioned it when I was hanging onto ideas for block pairs for the lotto.


  1. Sophie,

    I'd like to play along!

  2. Oooh, I may have to refer back to this when all my blacks have arrived 🙂 I had already thought about an on-point setting 🙂 Thanks Sophie!
