Saturdays Klosjes

Today is the first official Saturday of stitching my klosjes blocks. I did try a few out this week just to see how it all went together. I have managed a grand total of 16 blocks. This equals a 12" square.

They really are going to be so addictive. I have a nice neat pile cut out ready for the next time. I think they might come away with me this week when I go to see my mum.

Having done a bit of number crunching in trying to decide what size quilt I may make it is not for the faint hearted.

A 60" square quilt will need 400 x 3" blocks
A 72" square quilt will need 576 x 3" blocks

Hmmm! I have the power! I think!



  1. Woohoo! Great job, Shirley! This is going to be so much fun!
    what lovely colours, it will certainly be a beauty...

  2. Hi Shirley. Your spools (klosjes) are beautyfull!! Nice collors. It is a really fun job..
    have a nice weekend!!

  3. Love them very much.. did you hand piece yours?

  4. Oh Shirley, they are beautiful! 16! I think I am going to have to make a couple more today. That's a great idea laying them out in blocks, kind of like setting a target.

  5. Oh great blocks....just beautiful!!! I've only got 8 done, but may have more time to prep some and sew them here and there.


  6. Hi Shirley, I too have been bitten by Spools bug. Love your work. My beloved Grandfather's birthday was July 4th too. By the way which Kim McLean quilt are you going to do? I am a friend of Kim and am always interested to see what quilts people want to do. Cheers Sharron

  7. Looking lovely! I too have joined the Klosjes club.

  8. Another member of the klosjesclub! Welcome. It's so inspiring to see how the virus is spreading over the world. Your klosjes are great and looking at the weblogs of all the new "members" I get motivated to start working on my klosjes again (they are getting a bit dusty...).
    See you next week!

  9. I am amazed at what you get done. Love your Klosjes it will be interesting to see them grow.
