spider web in progress


My new WIP: a spiderweb quilt. I had first seen a vintage spiderweb quilt in an old quilting book I found at the thrift store. I spent days staring at it and trying to figure out how to make one. Unfortunately, the quilt was not labeled as a "spiderweb" quilt, so I had no idea there was a fabulous tutorial out there for making one! That is until everyone in blog world starting making them. Of course I had to jump on the bandwagon and now I'm obsessed with making these little blocks. They are very addictive. Now if only I could muster up the energy to turn the dining room back into my sewing room I'd be in business!

That does sound like a lot of fun. I checked out the tutorial and it would be a great way to use up scraps.

I love it! Yours seems to have a great vintage feel already. I might have to look into trying it for myself. :D
