Well, not really.  "Spools" is more accurate, although I'm not doing this as a spool quilt, but as a Dots and Boxes quilt.

Each box is approx 4".  I'll probably make it wider with more boxes and then with a border.  Or not.  I have a long way to go before making a border decision.  It's slow work, but very pleasant.

On the quick side, I'm doing a floating square quilt, based on instructions by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt fame.  I saw this YouTube, and had to do it.  When I first began collecting fabric a couple of years ago, I found this lovely charm pack of blues, yellows and white from Moda.  Can't remember the name.   I also bought a bit of yardage from the same line, and found some nice fabrics that live with it in my stash.  The white is Kona cotton white, my favorite.  This is so quick and easy.  I love her videos; they're perfect for me.  I'm afraid that I'm not very good with teensy little pieces that all have to fit together.  I admire those quilts, but I'm just not that precise, and not likely to improve.  But this little quilt is pleasant and mindless and within my capabilities.

2 very different projects - bright dots and boxes and soothing floating squares. Both are coming right along...faster than my project! Thanks for visiting HeLP for hexie-aholics!

I love all the bright colors in your dots and boxes project! The squares quilt is very pretty, too.

Are the dots and boxes using half hexies and squares?
