Spiderweb Love

The Spiderweb block is finished.

And I am over the moon with how it turned out.  I love it.  Those little bits of selvedge have made me very happy.

I made this block as a practice for my Bee.  I would really love to ask my fellow Bee members to help me make this quilt but I am worried about the amount of work involved in just one block.  So, I am pondering.  Maybe suggesting that the outer spiderweb sections are solid fabrics, or only asking for half a block.

Cheerio for now.
Hope you have a lovely day

  1. Looks lovely Liz! How long does it take? And will we need a special ruler for the triangles?

  4. How about asking for quarter blocks so that the bees can make as many as they can. Are these big blocks when completed like your picture?

    1. The whole spiderweb block in the picture is about 15 inches square.
      Each quarter is about 8 inches square and made up of two triangles, so I am thinking of asking for two of those {four triangles}.

  6. Maybe your bee members can make you blocks of selvedges and you can cut and assemble the blocks yourself? That way you get what you need and they don't have too much work?

  7. Liz, I think quarter blocks are doable (we are the bumblies after all) and you could ask us (like Sue did) to make 2 or 3?

  9. Bugger I was a no reply blogger.
    I hate the fact that my account keeps resetting itself. I was feeling so unpopular getting no replies to my comments :0(
    Hopefully I changed it back.

  10. This looks great! I have a silly question though-- did you piece these or are they appliqued (to get the full selvedge to show). I've been saving my selvedges, and while I don't have many, I'm not sure how to piece them and have them still be readable....

  11. It's a very cool effect, and half of one would be reasonable I think

  12. I adore spider web blocks. Yours is especially beautiful with the selvages. I am hoping to get one of these done someday.
