    Spiderweb quilt top finished

    I began this spiderweb quilt about 3 years ago from an article I saw in a magazine. It said to cut out paper foundations in a HSQ pattern. Since then, I have joined a quilt Guild plus this board and have learned much easier ways to do this type of quilt. Anyhow, I finally finished it and got all the paper torn off. Whew! never again. Finished the piano key border yesterday. Will probably not get the backing done until winter but just wanted to share. I think I have a couple pics on here somewhere of when I only had a few of these blocks finished. I love the scrappy, wild colors. This is me.

    I love your Spiderweb top! I am working on one also and I am about half done. It's such a happy pattern to me with all the fun scraps I've used over the years. Good job!

    I love the color in your quilt. I am working on one, but my stars are white. Yours looks so much richer.

    I love your choice of the blue background. Usually you see black which is wonderful. But the blue is wonderful. I love the bright colors. Yah, I would have gone foundation and recut to size. I use a really light interfacing and leave it in.

    Scrap quilts are my particular favorite, and this Spiderweb proves how right I am to choose scrap designs. Thanks for sharing.

    I just finished a Spider web also with the paper foundation and I have said the same thing~~ NEVER AGAIN~~
    Mine did turn out prettier that I had imagined though, but pulling all the paper off was a real nightmare!!
    Great job!

    I love your spiderweb quilt!! I am working on about 5 different scrappies right now. I use them as my "playtime" -- a little here, a little there -- kind of a warm-up to real sewing. I tear the paper off almost immediately as I want to see it without it. I "best press" them to hold their shape. Maybe I should be leaving the paper on for support till I get all blocks done?

    Stunning quilt. I would suggest Sheer Delite no show mesh stabilizer for your next string quilt project. It doesn't have to be removed and is very light weight. Once you use it, you will wonder how you did without it. Product can be found at www.stripsandstrings.com It is 30" wide and comes in 10yd, 25yd, and 50ys rolls. It works great for machine embroidery as well.
