The Spool Quilt Pattern is a nine patch layout made from square and half square triangle units. It’s a perfect quilt block and pattern for beginners and popular with quilters because of the reference to the thread spool! A classic quilt pattern, it is generally made from two fabrics. It uses similar blocks as the Eccentric Star, with a center square and half square triangles.
A super simple quilt block to make, this is a perfect stash and scrap busting quilt pattern. Use up all of those little bits and pieces that you were saving for another day! All you need to do is cut squares in the two different sizes – see the fabric calculator below. Make each spool a little different, just like your thread box! The finished will be reflective of the fabrics and colors you used in previous projects – kinda like a memory quilt of all of the quilts and projects you’ve made! Have fun mixing up fabrics and designs – remember, there are no rules or quilt police!
