Spider Web Quilt

Posted on June 26, 2011 at 7:55pm 2 Comments

I just purchased Material Obsession 2 and love everyone of the quilts.  After much thought I finally decided to make the Spider Web quilt shown as Maple Leaf Rag in the book.  I like it because the background will be using some of my stash as well and the quilt is just so colorful. Has anyone done one of these?

Hi Nancy,

I will be messaging you my address in a few days so I can send it to everyone at once. Can't wait to see what you came up with for your pin cushion, this is always a fun swap to do.

Hi Nancy,

  I don't have anything in the show( I don't belong to the guild, which meets at night, and I would have a 17 mile drive home on dark windy roads).  It is usually a good show, don't miss the ART quilts in the food building.  I will be at the vendors, and "white elephant" building before it opens at 10 AM.  The bargains are incredible, and I behave badly.  Hope we could recognize each other.

Nancy,  I love doing animal quilts.  they are from my personal photos.  Best way to get started is to take a class.  If you have no one locally to help you let me know and I will share my favorite techniques.......but better to find a local person if you are a beginner.

i can't post comments, for some reason, to your photos. but i so wanted to say how much i enjoyed the "eyespy" quilt for your daughter. the colors and two color trellis layout are so dramatic with the brights. and thank you forosting the link too.

WOW, thanks SO much Nancy!  I saw your Spider Wed quilt photo and gasped a good gasp.  I was inspired by the exact same book as you were.  I didn't follow the instructions as the book so I dove in making strada.  Now I have to start cutting and I'm chicken.  I hate making mistakes that wastes valuable time.  I work full time and don't get to spend much time in my sewing room so for me my time is precious.  

I learned to machine on my home machine but wasn't very successful at it.  A girlfriend and I later started a machine quilting business by buying a longarm.  I no longer use my home machine but GO FOR IT!  It takes practice but it's certainly do-able!

Thanks again for your kind words and thank you for accepting my request.  I look forward to seeing what you create!

Thank  you for your comments, Nancy. You have quite a variety yourself. I'd be hard put to pick a favorite. Each one has something unique about it. Your work is beautiful. I hope you will keep in touch and show me your latest projects. I have a feeling each one will be uniquely different!

Hugs, Linda
