Finished my Spool Story squares!

This morning I finished up the squares that will become the basic pieces in my Spool Story piece that I created in the Carol Wingert workshop last Saturday.  I am so glad they are all done!  I loved doing these small fabric collages.  Next project is to assemble and finish up the entire spool to share with all of you.

I so love the colors, the variety of fabrics, and the final finishes on these squares.
The square at the upper right is actually a pocket for photos, precious letters or notes, or whatever you want.  The technique for the clock square was new to me and I love it!  Hint:  ribbon and glimmer mist.
Since I love to sew, the top left square is one of my favorites!  All three of these have pockets and the one at the top right has a lacy tag to tuck in the pocket.
The square at the top left has beautiful trims on a small piece of fabric to form a pocket on this page as well. 

Please click on each picture here to get a closer view of the all the squares and the lovely fabrics, trims and techniques used on each.

Oh, those fabric collages are truly beautiful! And so different too, but still fitting nicely together.
Thanks for the inspiration!

All of your squares are lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. Carol provides the most beautiful products to work with. Lucky you to get to go to one of her workshops.
