A New String Project

I've had a spider web quilt on my "want to make" list for a while. This week I started it, with Miss Spooky Boo closely watching. She is so talented that she can supervise through her eyelids! LOL

I am using all the strings left over from this quilt. And I am using this tutorial, although I am sewing all of my strings directly to the base fabric instead of just the first one like the tutorial shows.

It will make the quilt a bit bulkier, but I'm not going to hand quilt this so I don't care. I think it will make everything a bit more stable. I'll probably need to press the seams of the block open though, which isn't my favorite. I'm only making two blocks to start with but I'm planning to make at least twelve. I think this might be my next scrap group project.

Oh, I've always wanted to make one of those. Looks like you are going to have lots of fun...especially with that special supervisor!
