Stash Bee Finishes - Spiderweb Quilt

Hi Peeps!

I have a finish, well lets say a BOUND and finished, because we all know it's been quilted for quite some time....I know you're not judging LOL

The blog history tells me this quilt is from April 2015 but if you read the post the idea is from 2011!!!

Tutorial is by Elizabeth Hartman and uses an interesting foundation piecing technique where you leave the foundation fabric attached.

Which leads me to the backing change......originally I'd chosen a candlewick bedspread ( my fave ) but with all those seams and the foundation fabric as well some intersections had 12 seams!!
My lovely longarmer tried more than once but it was not worth her sanity in broken needles!!

This vintage sheet fit the bill perfectly ( and smoother ) and Sandra and I remain friends LOL

I love that the girls of Stash Bee 2015 Hive #6 all contributed a piece of their stash to it, otherwise I'm sure it would've sat in the archived WIP pile LOL

Michael Miller stripe for the binding....FYI made my eyes wonky when trying to cut it up...getting old!!

  1. Beautiful! Love the scraps.

  2. Beautiful! Love the scraps.

  3. A wonderful finish! Love the backing sheet, and the b&w strip is perfect with all your scrappy colour!

  4. What a great finish! I'm sure you're happy to mark it off the wip list, too. It's sort of amazing how quickly a wip becomes a long-awaited finish. It is a beauty, including that fabulous backing.

  5. Great scrappiness and love the striped binding! Spectacular!


Thanks for saying Hi........give me a day or so and I will say Hi back and answer any questions you may have....have a great day :)
