That's what I've done with my 35 spool blocks. Kind of cute aren't they!
I tried to get it all quilt before this morning but I just didn't have time to do more than the stitching in the ditch of the "shelf".
If you like what I did, I used a 1 x 4 sashing between each spool using the background fabric.
My shelves are also 1 inch. Except the very bottom and sides with are 1 1/2 inch strips.
The top was the leftover fat quarter folded in half and cut into a faux Chippendale molding.
If you've made any spools please share! We would all love to see them.
Even better, they were 40% off!
They had a bigger size but I thought that one was way too big. These were more my size.
I just thought I'd pass the idea on and tempt you, if you can be tempt that is.
Have a wonderful weekend!
