    I have enough of the Weaver Fever blocks sewn to lay them out for a sneak preview. They are pretty easy to sew; kind of a no brainer to sew while you let your mind run wild, solving the world's problems. The version that I have is a free internet pattern, although there is a copyrighted book available with more information and more directions. I'm not sure how the colors turned out, but it's too late now. I think this will turn out pretty, and I'm anxious to get it all done. 1) before my kitty "helps" me with the strips all cut and stacked in order, and 2)so I can get on to sewing something else. There are so many things I wanna do!

    Note that there is a gap, because the blocks are now sewn together yet.

    Step by step

    I cut each strip into 1 1/2 inch widths. Here they are set out in order to sew.

    The sections are all sewn, and labeled. This is about the only tricky part, BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE DIAGRAM CAREFULLY

    Great colors. Yours is really pretty but it looks so confusing and hard to do!

    Here is the quilt top. About a zillion spools of thread later. It wasn't too bad to make, just had to keep the strips in the right order. I'd sure change the 3rd blue strip for future blocks because this one blends in too well. But it's ready for quilting (or for storing until I get to it!, which is more like it)

    Kitty tested and approved. Thank you Gracie!
