Sampler Class–Fun with Spool Blocks

The homework for last week was the spool block.  I was surprised that most of the students had a great deal of trouble with this block.  Getting the intersections right is a challenge but with the help of pins, it is doable.  Their blocks did turn out looking good, especially from a galloping horse!

Here are the blocks from the morning class.  Some of them were also able to finish their churn dash blocks.

Here are the evening blocks.

Not sure what happened in the evening class but I don’t have photos of any churn dash blocks.

We worked on our Grandmothers Flower blocks, Ohio Star and a Bear Paw variation last night – lots of homework again this week.  Will be fun to see what is finished next Wednesday.



  1. Love the spools!! How fun they are! :)

  2. I love spool blocks! I've seen lots of different ones and I love them all! :0)


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
