weekend fun

We just had one of the nicest weekends, this is why I like living in Minnesota! Clear skies, no storms, mid-70's most of the time, lush green landscape, flowers blooming. Who could ask for anything more? Well, in between weeding flower beds, joining friends at grad parties, and sipping wine by the fire in the backyard, I snuck in a little sewing. Very little! But enough to double the number of these spiderweb blocks--

I started this awhile back, and my box of selvage edges keeps growing, so I took some time to make a few more blocks. I used the basic format shown in this tutorial, but randomly adding selvages instead of fabric strips.

I did these spiderweb blocks while I should really have been doing something with this--
a bundle of fabrics for the 2011 MN Shop Hop! Just received some bolts at the store on Friday, and I am cooking up some ideas of quilts, etc., to feature these prints. Only on paper so far, I am having "quilter's block" with deciding what to do. Just have to clear my mind and cut into it!

Me too. I love your spiderweb selvage blocks. Nice and crisp. Wine by the fire sounds good too!

Spider webs are great! Teach a class, please!?!

Yes, these spiderwebs are much nicer than the ones I usually have to deal with in nooks and crannies around the house! Char, you and Debbie are on the same page, so there just might be spiderwebs all over Bear Patch this fall! (In addition to the ones I can't reach!)
