And so begins the spiderweb...
Quiltville that shows you how to do paper-pieced spiderwebs, but that scared me. I created my own "kite" template with the help of Quilt It and am piecing directly onto my background fabric. I suppose it's a bit wasteful considering two of the triangle points get cut off------but it's quick and easy and less intimidating than running my needle through paper. *Grin*
Again, with the blank on fabric designers. I'm sure there are some good ones in here, but I'm not a designer junkie --- I'm a fabric lover! I wish you could see the detail better on the light green and cream fabrics. That's GOLD all over...and it's shiny and beautiful!
My foundation fabric + kite. I am pleased with my kite... My finished block size will be 12" --- I made up kites for several other sizes, too. That's what I liked about Quilt It ; I can make spiderwebs in ANY size, not just the size of the available template.
Hopefully I'll have a finished [table topper] to show you soon!
P.S. These are two other spiderwebs that pushed me over the edge --- after seeing these, I knew I had to try my hand at it. Ah, the blissful ignorance of a newbie: Nothing scares me! (Well, nothing that is except paper-piecing...)
