    Two very different spider web quilts.

    The book Material Obsessions 2 has two spider web quilts. I made both and am in the process of quilting them. The one where the webs are emphasized is for my daughter, the one where the background is emphasized is for my son. Both are foundation piecing and used lots of my stash scraps. I like scrappy quilts.

    I really like this! Such a wonderful layout to showcase colors! Can I save the picture in my inspiration folder?

    Fabulous! Love them both but for me the all scrappy one wins my heart. They are great quilts. Want to see them finished too.

    EDIT: I really love when a quilt is viewed and creates interest when before there was little and in an instant a fan is born!

    Like them both - but the black background really sets off the colors and makes the patterns explode

    They are both beautiful but the scrappy takes my breath away! Where is the pattern-my husband thought it was amazing? Can I just google it or something/

    Sorry, Murphy1, I didn't read the whole thing-went straight to the pictures. I'll check out that book.
