Spiderweb Finish

072915 (867x1024)The Spiderweb quilt (48″ x 56″) is finished.  I machine quilted a giant spider web motif in variegated pastel thread.  Here is the best picture that I could get of the quilting.

072915A (683x1024)The machine quilting on the next quilt top has been completed and now I am hand-stitching the binding down.

072915B (1024x649)I used a leaf stencil in the middle and then cross-hatched the rest with a red-orange-yellow variegated thread.  Once the black binding is on I will be able to see if I made the correct choice.

While working on all these finishes I have made a decision about my next piecing projects.  I have decided to go with a theme – Stars – and have pulled out 8 or 9 star patterns.  They range in size from small baby to twin, so I am hopeful to get 5 or 6 done this year.

The first one will be Pretty in Pink using these bright batiks.

072915C (824x1024)I am sure that a couple of other projects will sneak, but it will be fun to work on the different star quilts.

    I like the stripe as the outside round on your spider web. And I can see the spider web quilting!
