New Quilt Started - The Spider Web Quilt
Fabric for my new project The Spider Wed Quilt. I have been playing with it for a week. I am using Batiks and some hand dyed fabric. Batiks and hand dyed quilts are my favorite. I love to work with the tight weaved fabric.
I think I may try the four pink hand dyed fabrics for my background colours.
I drew out the block. Now I have pattern pieces and can use my 30 degree ruler I bought so many years ago.
I started cutting strips. I will confess, I started to do the cutting before the fish pond quilt was done. I did not sew, just cutting.
I cut some more. I am now sure I have to much fabric and my quilt is going to be bigger. I was thinking of making a large lap quilt or twin but I think I could make a queen sized quilt. I just love all the fabric I picked out.
I lined up sets of six fabric in rows and piles. Then I sew sew.
I started to get something done this weekend. Look at all these pretty strip sets.
