    Spiderweb blocks

    Well last night I thought I was getting near the end of my blocks for my Spiderweb quilt for our queen size bed. NOOOOOO, I miss-calculated how many I needed. I need to do another 100 triangles for a total of 400. Sigh, back to the sewing machine.

    Whoa, nothing worse than thinking you are almost finished and realize you are only 3/4ths the way through.

    I used Bonnie Hunter's tutorial from www.quiltville.com to draft my starting diamond. I wanted to use telephone book pages for my base so I cut 8 and 1/2 inch squares (just fit on the page)and then cut the squares in half on the diagonal. As you can see, I forgot to add the 1/4 inch seam allowance on the bottom of my starter diamond so when I sew them together, the points are going to disappear. I was well into them before I noticed but since it is just a scrap quilt for myself, I decided to continue with the way they were.
