I have decided to attack my least favorite work-in-progress first, the thought being it will be a downhill glide from there 🙂 I had seen a beautiful spiderweb quilt online and could not get it out of my mind so although paper piecing is not my favorite, I decided I had to try it. What struck me about this particular quilt was that the negative space also had webs. I thought I could try a cheater version with fussy cutting. Ha! Gave up before completing one test block and decided to use a different (simpler?) set of templates–all from Quilter’s Cache by the way.
And we’re off…
Besides sewing upside down on paper, I tried to make things even more complicated by finishing the center seam of my webs by hand.
I don’t know how I managed to get 16 blocks completed as my color/fabric choices got less exciting as I progressed. Nevertheless, I kept making myself move forward to this point. Then as a reward, I pinned the rows together and hid them under a big pile. I actually managed to forget about them for a while. But now…ONWARD!
