Late Night Spooling Around

I couldn't sleep last night, so I made a few more of these. I'm up to 23 spools. I think it may be time to put it together. It's planned for a space in my studio...it can't get much bigger or it won't fit.
I was inspired by a little gift from Nichole. She sent me this great pack of selvages and they just happened to be sorted by color, so I went after it. Thanks Nichole!!

Now, back to business.

Jacquie, this is going to be the coolest quilt!

I have spent so much time sorting my bags of selvages, but they are all into "themes." I would love a quilt like this, even a little one, but it would take me forever to resort them into colors. Someday...
