Here is Sally's (Chocolate Chip Addict blog) Spools quilt top, another scrappy one. She has a very fun plan to appliqué a needle and thread on it. The thread will be red and will connect to the red spool on the lower right. Don't you love it when people take a project and make it their own?
I love her background fabric--can you see that it looks like it is already stipple quilted? And if you look close, you can see that her border print has little buttons on it. Adorable!
