    Love how the yellow background fabric makes your blocks pop. Can't wait to see your finished product. Very, very nice.

    Do you remove the dryer sheets at some point??? If so, how difficult is it. What is the name of the pattern? Looks like
    a lot of fun to make, and the result is outstanding.

    Looks a lot like Bonnie Hunter's Spider web. She did one called a Serpentine. Just a matter of how you place/arrange the blocks. Looks great!!

Problem is that I still have a lot of scraps left. Must dream up something else now. Thanks to all for the great comments

    i sort of adjusted the periwinkle pattern and, no, I did not remove the sheets. I used school glue to set the yellow kite into the corner on the 6 1/4 square of dryer sheet, and then just sewed 3/4 to 1 1/4 inch strips alternating sides then squared at 6 inches. On the periwinkle quilt, which is pp, the kite is set into the point of the triangle, thus ending up with a spider effect. Hope that makes an understandable explanation
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I guess I'm being a total dolt, but I can't figure out how you did this.....would you consider a basic tutorial? I believe there are enough of us here that would be interested......

    I'm glad the dryer sheets worked for you, great way to recycle and your quilt is beautiful.

    This is a beautiful quilt. I truly like it - i favor bright fabrics and this one is full of them.

    A word of caution: fabric softener sheets are highly flammable, even after being washed. I know, too late now, but good to know for future quilts.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I am in the process of making the same quilt, but not using dryer sheets. My quilt shop gave me a plastic template for the kite and she said to use 6" squares of the background fabric (yellow as you see in this quilt), mine are white. But I cut my squares 8 1/2" because I cut them on my Accuquilt. You draw the kite in a corner with the plastic template and use the sew and flip technique until you fill up the square. My quilting buddies are also making the same quilt in all different background colors. They all look great.
