Add it to the List

I got an email the other day from a blog reader Sherry W in Kasson, MN.  She, like me, is tackling a few UFOs.  She managed to get one finished…and it’s a beauty.

spiderweb (003)

This is Bonnie Hunter’s Spider Web quilt.  I have wanted to make this for a long time.  I really love it.  The free pattern can be found here.

Bonnie also did this version. (Photo courtesy of Quiltville) Read about this version on Bonnie’s site here.

I just love both versions. I actually would like to make them both too.  One of the reasons I haven’t started it yet is that I can’t decide which version to do first!!

Anyway…Sherry writes,
“I’ve been following (and playing along with) your progress on your ‘in progress’ Bonnie quilts and have been working on mine as well – so here’s the top that I finished – string spiderweb. Hopefully I will get it quilted after Christmas. I LOVE it and can’t wait to make another! But I do want to complete a few others before I start a new one. I also have all 221 of my neutral 4 patches done. I’ve made and completed the last 2 mysteries as well.

Now the list of incompletes – rick rack 9s, pineapple crazy, tumblers, ocean waves, scrappy bargello, split 9 patch, (I am sure there are more) and OH the list of the ones that I want to make!

Thanks for keeping me working on my projects and encouraging me to finish by having a challenge!”

I would hate to see a list of all the quilts that I want to make…it would be L-O-N-G!!!  The list I have of ones I am working is LONG too.  That’s okay….I love variety and I love spontaneity.  One of the greatest joys in having a large stash of fabric is seeing a pattern and then walking into your sewing room and starting to make it!  I do that a little too often.

Thanks so much for sharing your quilt with us Sherry and congrats on a finish.

If anyone else have made a spider web quilt I’d love you to leave a link in the comments.  I’ve debated on what I wanted to use as a background and seeing some of yours might help me decide.

    I love Bonnie Hunter patterns. I am attempting the Mystery, but haven’t made much progress as I am finishing Christmas gift quilts and Scrappy Chrystal blocks. So much to do! Love being retired!
