Do you remember how I made those spiderweb blocks for Monikas month in the "Bee Germany"?
By the way she just wrote a great tutorial for the fourth issue of Fat Quarterly. Check it out, I loved it! You also don't want to miss out on Tacha's Mister Fox. Too cute!
Anyway, the spiderweb blocks!
I loved them so much (and I thought that it would be such a great way to get ridd of my scraps) that I decided to make one quilt for myself using the pattern.
For the background fabric I used a very light grey cotton fabric that wouldn't steal too much attention from the colours in the spiderwebs.
I was first considering grouping them by colors but decided against it (I had already done that with my first String Quilt and thought that it was time to go with something else).
Almost all of my scraps were used to make it. It took a long time to get all those blocks done but it is the perfect project if you only have some minutes of uninterrupted sewing time. I found that paperpiecing wasn't necessary but I did have a template that I used to make sure that all blocks were the same size.I didn't really quilt it but sewed around each spiderweb in order to make them stand out more. The backing fabric is a bright red with big white polka dots.It is perfect for a dull grey day when you need some cheering up :)
I am linking this to the Love Nest Quilt Contest at Gen X Quilters.
Have a great day,
PS: Really sorry for the weird spacing but nothing helps here! If someone of you knows why blogger keeps messing up my entries I would love it if you share. Thanks!
