I've been slowly catching up on my sewing projects. Preschool has started and so I have a few extra hours a week to work. This is my first spiderweb block for Lee in my Bits and Pieces quilting bee group. I hope to finish the other block tonight! The finished block measures 10 3/4 inches.
The block Lee designed for her quilt and her tutorial can be found here: Naturally Neutral and Webby Quilt.
I've made a free template based on her instructions that you can download and print HERE.
I'll show you the process of making this quilt block - if you scroll down really fast, maybe it will look animated!
|print out the template on 8.5 x 11 paper|
|cut along the dotted lines|
|Fold along these two lines. It just occurred to me that I can put the fabric on the reverse side and eliminate this step!|
|Pin your solid color fabric in the center, leaving at least 1/4" fabric allowance on each edge.|
|add various sized strips to each side to cover the paper all the way to the edge.|
|press the paper and fabric to make it behave.|
|trim along all edges, right up to the paper.|
|it's looking pretty!|
|repeat three more times|
|play around with your triangles until you have them arranged just so|
|with the paper still attached, sew the triangle blocks together, then remove the papers.|
