    Scrappy Spiderweb Completed!

    I love the Bonnie Hunter scrappy quilts, and found this free pattern on her site - I had to try it to get some of my scraps used up - but as most of us know, it really doesn't make a dent!
    I used an old telephone book to make the templates to sew the scraps to, really made it easy to tear away the paper when done.
    When I was ready to add the binding I thought I'd try something different (for me anyway) I wrapped my binding around a large old spool I had sitting on a shelf, and put it between my knees as I sewed. It unwound really easily so I know I'll be doing that in the future with all my bindings. Thanks for looking!

    What is the name of the quilt? I tried to find the pattern on her website but didn't have any luck.

    I also wanted to start one, sorted my scraps, starched and ironed them, then decided I didn't have enough, so it is on hold. Yours is so much more beautiful, anyway. Very inspiring.

    Very pretty quilt. Thanks for sharing the idea about the spool for the binding.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.
