The wonderful Sarah has been plotting for months...waiting for her turn in our Modern Stitching Bee. We had a few hints of what was rolling around in her mind, just teasing us. Finally April arrived and she unveiled her super awesome tutorial to make Spiders Web blocks. Her tutorial is very easy to follow and brings you through step by step drawing the pattern and piecing. I, however, am not incredibly good at drawing patterns. I tried my best, Sarah!
It's a great block for burning through your scraps. It uses scraps of all shapes and sizes, which is awfully handy.
I couldn't find a piece of paper wide enough to make the 13 1/4 inch template, so for the first one I had to use gift wrapping paper. That really worked pretty well. By the second I found this:
And that was much much better. They'll be off in the post to you today, Miss Sarah.
I started up with Instagram this past week using Sarah's blocks as a little tester project. If you'd like to follow me there, I am @fluffysheepquilting. You'll get a sneak peek of anything passing by the shop or sewing table days (weeks!?!?) before you see it here on the blog.
On another note, last week was a very difficult week for my family. Everything is now just fine, but it was an awful roller coaster to get to this point. Thank you so very much to many of you for your well wishes, prayers, good vibes, emails, texts, etc. Knowing my quilty friends were supporting us made a huge huge difference. Thank you. I am so lucky to have you all. xx
