Spiderweb Quilt all done

I finished the Spider. I put a piano key border to add more color after all that white. I love it. It came out to be 75x85 more or less. I couldn't decide on a blue or red binding so I did both. I just joined red and blue alternately.

I have been in bed all day watching old movies and of course the rainy weather had a lot to do with it and I need a break after all that sewing. I think it took four or five days? I lost count.

Here is Spiderweb on the quilter and a close up of the quilting. I just do freehand quilting.

I finished quilting it and did the binding. Tomorrow I will take pics outside and post/
I had a little time this morning so I decided to work on my blog a bit. I went back to the simple template so I can put links on the side. This template is so much simpler. I will work on it some more after I get my Spiderweb quilt, quilted. I am putting it on the Gammill in a minute as soon as I get more coffee and finish blogging.

I am now thinking of more stripes and strings patterns. I love that scrappy look. You can use anything you have. I usually stick to a light and dark value theory. .

Now that I have arranged all my fabrics, in color codes and did all the drawers and know where every piece of fabric This was another inpiration from Fibermania (Melody).

Here is a pic of the book shelves in the front closet. I was able to get one on the side and two to the back. They are about 72 by 30 more or less...

Here is the back of the closet and then all the bulk stuff on the top.

And having still some inspiration left, I tackled the ceiling to floor cubboard in the middle room, this is the doll and finished rolled quilt room. I see I have a little space on that one shelf lol.. and then I did the the two dressers . It feels soooo good. I did this two weeks ago and did knitting in-between as Florida was so cold. That project was posted on my doll blog las tnight.

Spiderweb Quilt

Oh goodness, it's been like forever since I posted to my blogs. I got inspired by a quilt on Fibermanina blog. It's called the Spider Web and she gave instruction and the template she used. I just had to stop the other things I was doing and do it.

Here are the first blocks.

I did more blocks because they are contagious and I did have a bucket full of strips. I didn't have to cut anything, except to straighten some out. Now I have to fill all those triangles.

Oh Boy, this was a sew as you go deal. Custom triangles and quads or whatever it's called. I filled the outside. Now I have to draft the corners to square it off...

Here is the main quilt middle completed...
