Fabric Tuesday!

I'm back for another Fabric Tuesday over at Quiltstory!

I haven't put in much time at my sewing machine the last week or two. I don't know about you, but after the big push to get the holiday quilts and projects done, I just kind of needed a little break from it. Inspiration struck this week, though when I ran across pictures of a spiderweb quilt. I've been seeing people working on these quilts for a while and I just love them, but never felt confident enough to give it a go myself. I found a stack of fat quarters and ran across this tutorial over at Sew, Mama, Sew on the same day, so I figured it was fate telling me to give it a go!

I'm thrilled to say it's not nearly as hard as it looks! This went together pretty quickly after I got the hang of it and I now have three blocks done (but forgot to take a new picture this morning... Shame on me!). I'm totally in love with the crisp white and the fun red. I have no idea what I'm going to do with this quilt, but sometimes it doesn't matter. Making it is just so much fun! :)

Happy Fabric Tuesday! I'll see you all next week, hopefully with lots more done!



These are yummy! :) That Oh Fransson! tutorial on Sew Mama Sew is great! Happy Fabric Tuesday!

Thanks for sharing, the spiderweb's been on my list to try too - glad to hear it's not as intimidating as it seems! :)


I don't normally like predominantly red fabrics, but I think that your block is really stunning. I like the little bits of white and green/pink/blue in the fabrics, too. Looks really nice, I can't wait to see more!


I love your fabric choices! The red with white is fabulous!

I am in the process of making a Spiderweb quilt too! Mine is entirely in black & white fabrics. & you are's not as hard as you think it would be. I only started quilting in August 2010 & I am either fearless or stupid...not sure which yet!
