2023 Year of Spools Finishing Settings

The moment we've been waiting for all year long–the 2023 Year of Spools FREE Finishing Settings PDF is now available! I have been so excited about sharing this all year long and I can not believe the time has come. If you remember way back in February of this year, I shared about this BOM and that I would have some instructions for you to turn those blocks into something cute. The wait is over! Can you believe how fast this BOM went? I guess the saying is true–time flies when you are having fun. And fun is what this BOM has been. From cute snowmen and bunnies to flowers and pumpkins, this BOM is a memorable one. I hope you enjoyed making the blocks this year! I know I have enjoyed seeing your blocks. I hope you enjoy the FREE Finishing Settings PDF. Keep reading for a sneak peek of each of the projects and more.

2023 Year of Spools Finishing Settings:

The 2023 Year of Spools Finishing Settings PDF consists of settings using all 12 blocks for a large throw, 9 blocks for a small throw, 3 or 2 blocks for a table runner, and 1 block for a pillow or wall hanging. The blocks can be used for not only the projects in the PDF, but many other things so let your creativity flow! The PDF also shows other ideas for using multiples of one or two blocks in the settings, and even has a fun coupon.  

Option A:

Showcase all 12 monthly blocks in a simple setting that allows your blocks to shine. Add a fun pieced border as a special touch. Finished Size: 58” x 73.5”. Check out the fun option below:

Make multiples of one month's block, such as Sew Festive shown here, to make a quilt for the holiday or season of your choosing. Use leftover prints from your blocks for a scrappy and colorful border.

Option B:

Include nine of your favorite blocks in a smaller throw or repeat blocks for a seasonal design. Finished Size: 58” x 58”.  Also check out some other fun options below. 

Play with color and block rotation in your quilts! Sew Loving alternates between dark and light blocks. And Sew Sunny has blocks that twist and turn to add interest and movement. 

Options C & D:

Not a fan of pieced borders? No problem! Just use a solid border to frame your favorite monthly blocks. 

Option E: 

Top your table with a fun seasonal quilt using three blocks. Finished Size: 48” x 17”. Need to make the table runner longer? No problem, just add more blocks, sashing, and cornerstones. Easy Peasy! Check out more options below. 

Mix and match your favorite blocks to create a table runner that can be displayed all season long!

Option F:

Display a favorite design in a quick-to-sew project. Turn one block into an adorable pillow or just quilt and bind the block for a cute wall hanging. 

Option G:

Highlight a favorite large-scale or focal print. This two-block table runner has room to showcase your fabric and can be customized for the size of your table.
