Spiderweb Blocks Revisited

I started the Spiderweb blocks last year with the intention to sew them at leisure throughout the year. Did not get that far


Somehow I lost interest half way through the year and nothing much happened on this one. Well, after finishing the Dresden Plate, I suddenly felt the urge to continue with this. Probably due to the amazing amount of scraps that I am accumulating...

Anyway, cranked out a few more quarters of the block. The funny part was that I could not exactly remember how I had done the block and had to look up my own tutorial to refresh my memory...all I could remember was that I used  some interfacing to construct this. This is where the blog becomes very handy.  You can find the instructions  under tutorials on the tabs above. This is one of those blocks that  is great to just whip up when you don't feel like doing anything too taxing but just want to sew a bit. And, needless to say but you must love the scrappy look.

Good effort
Love playing with those blocks...so colourful!
If I continue with a few quarters per month I could get a quilt out of this by the end of the year. Let's see how I go...I got several other projects on the go and in my head and do not often stay on task.

There is  a new pattern I want to try, a new baby quilt to construct, then there is Cheryl's quilt to be basted and quilted, EPP  projects...and so the list goes on

As you can see here, getting side tracked even when photographing blocks...I started playing with the camera:


Talking about photography the other day with my friend, Maxine...here it is...small F value and some tinkering around in the manual setting. Was really happy as I got the background all blurred which was the intention of the exercise.
