It's that wonderful time of the year - yes, its time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. So much quilty inspiration!
My entry for this fall is my Spider Web quilt.
It was very easy to make using a tutorial at Quiltville, and best of all - it made a major dent in my scrap boxes! If you have an overflowing scrap pile, then I suggest this pattern.
I hand quilted this in about 2 weeks which is kinda fast for me, but I set a goal that I wanted to see this quilt done and on my bed. The spider webs are quilted with white thread and the red areas are quilted with red thread.
(Thanks Little Guy, for adding a set of little paws to the photo. Its good to know that my quilts are protected from attack squirrels and ninja cats.)
I think you can tell that I have made a lot of kid quilts by looking at all the pinks and bright colored scraps. It is rare for me to keep a quilt. The few that I have are put away and not used.
At first, I really didn't like the look of it on my bed. It was so bold and bright! But then, it really grew on me and I get a smile every morning waking up to my bright quilt. I love the feeling of actually using my quilts.
Please check out all the other quilts during the Blogger's Quilt Festival and I hope that you join us in all this fun.
