Empty Spools - Week 31

When I read this morning's Civil War Quilts entry I commented to Norris, "This is an easy block - it won't take long to make." So he asked if I would like him to make it for me.

I wasn't sure I liked the block at 8 inches, so I made 4 of them at 4 inches. The traditional way to set them is to rotate every other spool, but I think it looks more like stacked spools this way -

And I got to use four of my blue fabrics in one block.

I LIKE them stacked.

Hey, that's really good! Why didn't I think of that? I really like the 4 in. size, maybe I will have to do it over again after I get caught up. I have a bit of a gap between week 14 and 31!

Sew, which one did Norris make?
