I am so excited to wrap this one up and put it in the finished pile. I started this some time ago. When we hosted a retreat in 2017 with Bonnie Hunter the Spider Web String was one of the quilts that the participants made.
Oops…there’s snow on the right hand lower part of the quilt…it’s so snowy here!!
You can find the free pattern for this quilt on Bonnie Hunter’s site HERE. She did hers in a 6 x 7 setting. I did mine larger. It’s an 8 x 8 setting. The quilt, if I remember right, is 96″ x 96″.
Here it is as it came off the quilting frame.
A BIG shout of to all of the blog readers who sent me fabric to make this. All of these little scraps in scrap bags that were sent to me were collected and put into this quilt. Oh I love scrap bags. I could never have the great variety that I have without all of those tiny pieces. If you don’t like scraps and strings, I’ll happily accept any anyone wants to part with. Making these kind of quilts makes my heart happy.
You can see a sneak peak of the back here in the photo…see?
I typically don’t keep many quilts that are bright colored but this one is oh so tempting….I think it’s the black (actually charcoal) with it that makes me like it so much.
For those of you who have been following my color theory posts…the scraps in this quilt are all white based.
Of course a Ruby picture.
The binding is a bright green print.
The backing I think looks great with the front. It was a duvet cover that I bought at the thrift store. It wasn’t pieced. It’s fabric that appears to have been pieced. I did do a little piecing to get it large enough for a backing.
Try as I might I couldn’t get any good close up pictures. I used a variegated thread for the top and the back. It looks good close up but I tried and tried to get a photo but for some reason it doesn’t show up with the lighting.
The center black got a flower motif and the webs got a corner to corner design.
I was so hesitant to use a black background. I am sure glad I did!!
So any of you who went to the retreat and made this with Bonnie…do you have your quilt done?
The other quilt we did was Moth in the Window. Sadly that one I haven’t sewn a stitch on…but enough of that. THIS ONE IS FINISHED!! I also have one more quilt of the pile of quilts that need to be quilted. I’m going to get caught up. I’m determined.
