First blog post, first 2012 finish

I'm on a strict fabric diet leading up to the March 16 BMQG retreat, which will feature a fabric shop hop en route to Maine.

I'm in the midst of several large scrap-centric quilts, but here's my first finish of the year:  a baby quilt for a friend from work who's having a little girl in early April.   I used Monet's awesome tutorial for the blocks, and quilted in a V-formation, to mimic the 8 wedges in the center "web".   Will post the back once I can get the sunlight (and a helper) to cooperate for longer than 4 minutes. :)

Denise's spiderweb quilt, finished January 28, 2012


  1. Looks so good! I love those spiderweb blocks. You're going to have to give me a tutorial at the retreat.

  2. I love this! What a lucky friend you have. I love Monet's tutorial too and plan to do a big spiderweb quilt sometime this year.

  3. Ooh that's so awesome! Congrats on breaking the seal and starting a blog!

  4. Love the colours in this quilt. What are 'clippity cloppity English films?!
