I am still squeezing in a little time to work on my spider web blocks. I have other things that are more pressing but as I’ve said before, I need a little “me time” now and then and these spider web blocks are it.
When I last checking in, I had 44 done.
I am adding another 72.
That brings my total up to 116. I have more done but the paper is still on them and I don’t count them until the paper is off.
I got looking at the note on the blocks and am afraid I need to refigure this.
This is Bonnie Hunter’s original quilt. (photo courtesy of Quiltville-here is a link to the complete pattern and full story on the quilt.)
Bonnie made a 6 x 7 layout. It makes a 10 3/4″ block. That means that this quilt is likely twin-ish sized. Well you know me….bigger is better.
Originally I thought to do a 7 x 7 setting. Now I’m thinking 8 x 8 would be best. If I make a 2″ inner border, a 3″ scrap border and another 2″ border I’d have a quilt that is 100″ x 100″…that’s better! If I do that, that means that I need 64 blocks. Each block has 4 triangles so that means 256 triangles. Okay…now that I know that, I best get sewing. I’m not even half done yet.
If you’re looking for me…I’m in the sewing room. Unless of course, work or life is calling. I totally love making these “blocks”. I am betting I make another one of these quilts someday.
