Mary from Quilt Hollow sent me this Snap Happy bag recently. My girl kitty had been sick, and Mary sent this bag as a "just because" gift. She used the cutest cat fabric for the bag, and pumpkin fabric for the top of the bag. It snaps shut tightly because it has a metal tape measure in the top! And as always, her work is so nice. Thank you so much, Mary. You're too good to me!
I know I'm not the only one who gets distracted by all the amazing projects everyone else is working on, but I seem to go in many more directions than most people. That would probably explain the countless UFOs in my closet. I would think of signing up for a UFO challenge, but before I could finish making a list, I would have two more UFOs to add to it! I need some serious therapy.
Anyway, I've developed an unhealthy obsession over Spiderweb blocks. I ran across a tutorial at House of A La Mode, who was inspired by this tutorial at Quilt It. I'm not fond of foundation piecing (I don't like removing paper, and I don't like the idea of an extra layer of fabric in my seam allowances), so this method intrigued me. I had to make one (add one more project to "the list").
And then I had to make another one.
They're too much fun!
Here are some different Spiderweb quilts I found on Flickr. Just click on the links below the collage to see the full-size photos.

Aren't they gorgeous?!!
And now I need to get back to what I was doing before I was sidetracked by Spiderwebs.
Cutting strips of old Robyn Pandolph fabrics to share with a special friend.
Have a great week!
