Mini Spool quilt

So I finally finished my mini quilt! A while ago I had a desperate urge to quilt as you go and had just purchased the Spools quilt pattern from Thimble Blossoms by Camille Roskelley so I grabbed a few scraps and off I went.
Initially I had no idea what I was going to do with the one spool block, I was just having fun! I had thoughts of making it into a zippered pouch but then went in the complete opposite direction!
So one finished QAYG spools block, some pretty bias tape, my new clover wonder clips (I only purchased 10 but they pretty fab!) and a cute little mini quilt has arrived!!
I'm liking mini quilts as it allows me to practice my corners and hand stitching on the binding! I'm getting closer and closer to finally making a full sized quilt... or at least something slightly bigger that might cover my lap!!
