For my birthday Patrick and Sarah ordered a thread holder for my wall in the studio.  It is a Martha Stewart for Home Decorators piece and was backordered for 6 months!  I think she needs a new inventory control person.  Once put together and on the wall, I decided I loved it, wait and all.  I still had a bunch of thread leftover, so I ordered another unit, fully aware it could be months.  Within a week it arrived.  Crazy.  I got all my Isacord thread together, took inventory of what colors I had, and loaded the pins with thread, in numerical order!  It will be easy to find the colors I need.  I also know, now, what colors I can add.  Perfect!  Since I was in the Spool frame of mind, I thought I would make a little wall quilt for the studio based on Camille Roskelly's  Thuimble Blossoms #154 Spools pattern.  I made them a little smaller, and the center part of the spools are wonky-pieced.  The spool in the bottom left is pieced out of selvedges, just for fun.  I machine quilted in the ditch around each spool and then did some fancy machine stitches in the borders.  I need to have help hanging this...I want it over the stairway...I am sure I can find someone very willing to help!  Jerilynn


  1. This is so cute! Wish I knew how to post comments correctly.

  2. Very nice! It's like an I Spy for quilters. The artist's palette of thread is wonderful too.
