Oops!

I realized I forgot to share pictures of the Spider Web quilt after I finished quilting it.  This is definitely one of the brightest quilts I've ever made -- you know, being such a "brown" person. 



I always thought a Spider Web quilt would be difficult to piece, but Marit has made it painless.  To see her tutorial for a foundationless block, click here.   I made smaller blocks for this quilt, but I'll be making the 12" block next.  Can't stop at one, right?  This one will soon be on its way to Bumble Beans, Inc.'s BASICS Quilt Gather.

I haven't gotten very far with my Jelly Rolls.  I unrolled them and added them to my stash of strips, and they're still waiting for me.  I like to stack the strips individually and put them in clear shoebox-size storage containers.  It's easy to pull them out and "audition" them wiith other fabrics.  I'm sure you've noticed how some of the fabric designers will incorporate a color or two from an older fabric line into a new one.  I really love it when they do.  Combining the new and old prints makes the quilt more interesting.  



Hope you've had a good weekend!

Kim

I was in A&E in Pensacola last week and saw your book. I loved the Picnic quilt on the cover so I bought a copy and that is on my to do list too. Now I've stumbled upon your blog. I wish I would have found it sooner, I might have been able to win a autographed copy :)
Happy Sewing!!

on storing strips, oh yes mix those old ones in with the new ones.
I am getting ready to organize my strips by color!
I am finding I hunt a lot now by color vs using what I have...ok so now what does that say? yes I have a lot of strips!
have a great week

The jelly rolls look so tempting.

Sinta Renee said...

That is an amazing quilt! I love the colors (you did a good job coming out of your comfort zone)!
Great job!!!

Mama Pea said...

Your spider web quilt is really amazing. Gorgeous. And I love the quilting. That's a really good idea about the jelly roll strip storage. I will keep that in mind. I just won a jelly roll and am going to try one of your quilts from your new or old book with it. Since the jelly roll was a gift, I will likely donate the resulting quilt to a charity event. I like the gift to keep moving. :-) Thanks for all the inspiration!

Sujata said...

Your spiderweb quilt is gorgeous! One quilt I must make in near future!
I am sure it is going to be well appreciated.

This is THE BEST spider web quilt I've seen! The brights are used so well and they are happy, cheerful, and full of fun! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm wanting to transition to more bright/more modern fabric and this one is a great encouratement to get started with NEW fabrics. 8-)

Anne Simonot said...

This is a beautiful spiderweb quilt - congratulations on stepping out of your comfort zone! I just wanted to say that I just received my (Amazon) copy of your new book, and if I thought I liked the first one, this one is incredible! There at least six quilts that I want to make right now...
