Finished Klosjes

Here are my finished klosjes. This wall hanging measures approx. 24" x 24" and my spool blocks are 4" square. A close-up of the hand quilting in the borders.
I just had to take these photos with tulips from my garden. After all, klosjes does mean spools in Dutch.
So there, my third finish for 2010. Am I on a roll???
Pattern Source: Block #3571 from EQ Block Base.
If you want to see how I did these using English Paper Piecing method and how to draft your klosjes (spool) block, just go to the side bar on the left side of my blog and scroll down to LABELS and scroll down again to tutorials and all will be explained.
Have a great day, eh!

Such a lovely finish.

Our tulips were looking lovely and a rabbit came along and ate them. I suppose rabbits have to live too.
