Sample Quilt Layouts

The Spools quilt block is an old favourite among quilters. It is an ideal choice to use up any scraps you might have -- particularly striped fabrics. (The stripes represent the threads wound around the spools.)

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks side by side and forms a bit of a geometic design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a diagonal placement of the blocks and introduces many more scraps as the side setting triangles along the outer edges of the pieced quilt, prior to adding the borders.
