The String Spool Quilt Block uses like-colored strings in the body of each spool so that each block looks like a different spool of thread. This block is a sophisticated alternative to the classic string quilt. Whether you are a new quilting looking for a challenge or an experienced quilter who wants to use string quilting in a new way, this unique and impressive idea is sure to impress. Plus, you can combine a handful of these quilt blocks to make a sewing-themed quilt for a crafty friend.
