Itsy Bitsy Spider...

Hi There!

I had today off and without boring you with the details, I was lucky enough to be able to spend the best part of my day, in my sewing room!

Soooo, I've been chomping at the bit, wanting to start this "part-time" quilt. I say "part-time" 'cause I wasn't supposed to concentrate too much on it, but DARN IT ALL - I DO love scrappy string-like quilts and PAPER PIECING?!?!?

Paper piecing's my all time favorite!


My friend Cyn, sent me the link to this one...

(Easy) Spider Web

It doesn't look like much... when you complete 1/2 the block.

But put FOUR of them together and you get something REALLY neat!

Here's one that's pieced together.

Amazingly enough, once these blocks are pieced together, we'll be able to see TWO shapes -

A spider web and a star.

Since my spider web will be done in reds, oranges and yellows, I'm calling it them my "suns", instead and the blue star represents the sky, of course.

I'll be sharing pics of this quilt, as I progress.

Hope you're having a fun-filled Friday!

Super Duper, Rosa! You go girl. Love the colors.
My gosh but you are fast! I just sent you the link from Catinka & the PPing patt. You're amazing!

Hi Rosa,
I am sewing a spider web quilt together with some blog friends. Maybe you want to come over and have a peek at mine? I got your blog adress from Cyn, and I she got the template link from my blog.
Nice to meet you.

OOooooh, love the spider! I'd love the pattern to this baby, Rosa! I made one years ago, but it's all faded and starting to show wear. Time for a new one!

Looking forward to watching this one grow.

I love this way of doing the spider web quilt. I have seen it before and always admired it. I got a big chuckle out of the cartoon with the birds, about this 'wireless' world. I hope you don't mind if I borrow it, I'll put a link back to your humor!!

Oh, this looks fun! I'm off to Cyn's to check this out! I NEED a new project. Don't have enough UFOs already, LOL!
