Mini Quilt Monday - Spiderweb Quilt

I love some of the Spiderweb Quilts I have seen on the internet and decided to give it a go myself. I used this tutorial on Bonnie's blog which has really well written instructions.


This Mini Quilt was quite time consuming to make and created a lot of mess. Next time I will need to be more organised about it, with pre-cut fabric strips and prepared foundation papers.


I have used some of my many selvedges that I have accumulated over the years as part of the blocks. They pay tribute to some great fabric designers and manufacturers.


Be sure to take a look at some of the wonderful quilts on the Mini Quilt Monday Flickr Group.

  8. I love it, I'd love to have a go at a full size quilt but as you say, I think that would require cutting a lot of strips and being organised.

  9. I love how you arranged the blocks into four half circles - and the quilting. Oh my! That was inspired! I also like that you used some selvedges along with regular strips. I think that is more do-able for most of us.

    I saw a great tutorial for a spiderweb without using papers - http://quilt-it.blogspot.com/2009/01/tutorial-spiderweb.html
