Pretty Scrappy Spiderweb

I started making my Pretty Scrappy Spiderweb quilt top over 2 years ago and really felt the urge to get on with it over the Easter break so in amongst visiting family and friends and usual household jobs, I spent a good deal of time in the sewing room.

I had a few blocks in the drawer from 2 years ago.


Sewing these spiderwebs is a messy job (for me anyway).


The finished quilt top - the weather has been really miserable over the Easter break and I'm hoping to take some better photos soon.  The white "stars" actually have blush pink polka dots.  I had some of the stripe fabric from Robyn Pandolph's "Butterfly Garden" fabrics in my stash to form the outer rings of the spiderwebs and was lucky to find more for sale last year so had plenty to use for the rest of the blocks, borders and binding.



The backing is made up of a 2 yard piece of Robyn Pandolph fabric "Captured in Time" plus all my leftover pieces of Robyn Pandolph blue fabric and the rest of the yellow stripe fabric.


The Binding
Next step is to work out how to quilt this.  It hasn't turned out too badly for something made almost entirely from the scrap drawer.

I do remember you starting this quilt. I think you took it with you to Kingaroy on you first visit there. It looks just lovely and has me thinking on doing one myself or, at least something along the same lines. I have so many scraps.

Lynda, I think this is the prettiest palette I've ever seen used for spiderweb quilt. It's beautiful. And I'm a huge Robyn Pandolph fan too :)
