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.
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!!
“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.
