Spider web quilt block

I finished the two blocks that I am making for the first month of the Bee (a little bit Japanese) quilting group.  All the blocks will feature some japanese fabric and as these were scrap based there are loads of different bits.  Kaelin sent a lovely bag of scraps and we can add a bit from our stash and we keep the left overs!  Someone else's scraps are always extra good.

The tutorial is here and it uses a paper base which keeps everything stable and is great for trimming to an accurate shape at the end

I haven't done this block before- I haven't done many ever so a quilting bee is proving to be a great education.  It is a great scrap buster and I loved choosing the picture bits to best use the prints

Looking at the other blocks so far, it is going to be the most lovely quilt.  I might have a go trying the same method teeny tiny size.


  1. You did a great job on those! I have yet to try that block. I have liked all the ones I've seen in it so far.

  2. Great blocks! Aren't spiderwebs fun, once they are all put together they look oh so complicated, but really they aren't that bad!!


  3. just georgeous! they look very skillfully pieced. can't wait to see the whole thing.
