We’re excited to present a new quilt designed exclusively for the Fat Quarter Shop by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts!
Sew Colorful Spools Sampler Quilt
Corey Yoder designed the Sew Colorful Spools Sampler Quilt Pattern exclusively for our the Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Colorful Monthly Subscription bundle. The Spools Quilt cleverly uses different colored spools to showcase fabrics from the entire year. The pattern features 6 different spool blocks that can be mixed and matched as you’d like, and it works wonderfully to use up all of those little bits and pieces of colorful fabrics you may have left over after working on your larger Sew Colorful projects. The Sew Colorful Spools Sampler quilt can be made in 4 different sizes (Crib, Throw, Lap and Full) and you can add scraps from your stash pile to make a scrappier quilt.
The fabrics from the monthly Sew Colorful Fat Quarter Club are plenty to make the spools out of. To complete the rest of the quilt top, a light and dark fabric are required. A Spools Fabric Finishing Kit with light and dark fabrics and binding is available.
Sew Colorful Spools Quilt Along
We invite you to join us for our Quilt Along! The club will ship on the 29th of each month beginning in January, and Kimberly Jolly and Corey Yoder will be quilting along with us on the blog and social media. We’ll have prizes for Sew Colorful Club members that are quilting along. Each month, members participating with the hashtag #sewcolorfulqal on Instagram will be entered to win a prize of thread and notions that go with the color of the month.
This is a beginner-friendly project, and it’s fun for experienced quilters, too. The six blocks in the pattern start with a 9 Patch Spool, a Strips Spool and increase in complexity to a Friendship Star and Fancy Free Spool. You can make the blocks from whichever colors you like. It’s up to you!
A Peek at the First Six Months
Quilt Designer Corey Yoder
The designs Corey Yoder creates and publishes for Coriander Quilts showcase her love for putting a modern twist on traditional block designs. She is a regular contributor to quilt magazines and books, and she is the author of Playful Petals. Quilt design quickly led to fabric design and she has been designing for Moda Fabrics since 2014. Her newest fabric collection is called Sunny Side Up.

When will the finishing kit be available?
We expect to have in up in January.
I love the Corey Yoder Spools project. How do I subscribe to it? I am also new to this blog. Technology is not my forte; but I am trying. Lol..
What you would do is buy Corey Yoder’s pattern (https://www.fatquartershop.com/sew-colorful-spools-downloadable-pdf-quilt-pattern). That’s the first part. Then, join the Sew Colorful club if you like, or follow along using your own fabrics (https://www.fatquartershop.com/sew-colorful-fat-quarter-club). Starting in January, each month around the 20th we’ll have a blog post here with updates.
Are thes bundles different from the Year in Fat Quarters you had for 2018?
They’re very similar. Different fabrics, of course, because all the designers have new lines each year, but the idea is the same, and we go about selecting fabrics for it in the same way we did for Year of the Fat Quarter.
I don’t see any reference as to what size the spool blocks are.
How do I find the sew alongs? I’ve purchased the pattern but not the fat quarters … I would like to use my own fabric.
