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.

Spiderweb Top

Since spring cleaning didn’t happen around here, I decided that I needed to do some fall cleaning which seriously interfered with my sewing time.  But now everything looks clean & spiderweb free – except for my quilt top.

The scene in my sewing room has gone from this

100414    (1024x755)to this

100414A  (1024x646)to a quilt top finished today.

100414B   (865x1024)These blocks are a bit smaller than the pattern on Bonnie Hunter’s website.  I started with a 6 1/2″ square to design the triangles and the block finishes at 8″.  This quilt used one yard of the yellow background fabric and one yard of the black & white stripe for the 30 blocks.

I like the touch of playfulness that the cornerstones add to the quilt.  No fabric was purchased in the making of this quilt – it is 100% stash.
