Blogger's Quit Festival

I decided to join in the wonderful Bogger's Quilt Festival. What a great way to share. I thought I would share with you a quilt that I made about 2 years ago. It is my absoulute favorite! Not my husbands. But it still resides on the bed. hehee!

Anyway this is my version of the spiderweb quilt. I made it when I was just starting quilting. It was great to just put things together. I tried to use as little thinking as possible. I just had fun, and used a lot of color. I think that is why I am so drawn to it. It reminds me of my grandmother's quilts, scrappy.

I tried my best to add as many different pieces as I had available. Even the white areas are made of different white prints, and some tan. When I started I really didn't have a plan of size. I just kept going to the point you now see. There is also some special pieces left over from my boy's quilts and just fabrics that seem to evoke a memory for me. I have to tell you that I bought nothing new for this quilt top. It still amazes me to make something from nothing or little. I hand quilted this around each of the stars and thru the spiderwebs. I used different colored quilting threads. I just seemed to fit the scrappy feeling. I didn't want to go for a matching look. I wanted more of favored piece. Which it very much is.

Thanks go to Amy for showcasing so many beautiful quilts and the storyies behind them.

  1. La cosa bella di questo "quilt festival" è che vedi blocchi che vanno a formare trapunte che non ho mai visto prima....
    Anche questa è bellissima, sicuramente da tenere presente per i progetti futuri....
    Ciao Domenica

  2. So many beautiful fabrics and what a great design! It reminded me of my grandmother's quilt, too. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Don't you love being able to see all those pretty fabrics when you wake up?

  4. It's really wonderful. I love just staring at quilts like that -- you can see something different every time, and if you've used scraps, sometimes they bring up memories. I've just started my first Spider Web quilt, and can't wait to finish it.

  5. Great job! I love quilts that use the entire spectrum of colors, like this one -- make yourself happy, I always say. And this quilt is such a happy one!


  6. That's a great quilt. I love it.

  7. Thank you for dropping by and letting me know you'd visited.

    I just wanted to tell you how bowled over I was by your quilt. I adore Spiderweb quilts and yours is just beautiful. I'm a big fan of scrappy quilts that have a bit of everything.

    Thanks for sharing it.

  8. This is a great scrappy quilt. I love the way the spider web pattern is so suited to using all your scraps.
    Your quilt is so bright and colourful. It looks wonderful!


It's always wonderful to know that you have stopped by. All of your comments brighten my day!
