the spiderweb block -

I'll apologise in advance for the poor lighting in these photos, and now that's out of the way onto my first spiderweb block. It is as much fun as the strip piecing block, as it is done the same, except for the measurement at the beginning to keep the white in the middle. I'm not explaining that well at all, but luckily there is a great tutorial at the Quilt It blog, here, I used it and it's wonderful!

I always find the pre-trimming a scary moment, but then magically you have a neat, precise block!

When you have sewn four together, you'll have a full scrappy spiderweb block, yay! For this block I used a bunch of lovely Kafe Fassett fabrics, which really lends itself well to a scrappy block. I'm excited to do more now, I'm really addicted to the strip piecing method, and love the look of it! ♥

I had so much fun making the one for the Potholder Pass and can't wait to make more. I have tons of scraps if you need some for your new strip block obsession and could use help using them up! I love the circle block you just made and posted to flickr. I think I will give it a go! Happy Sunday!

It's very cute! At first I thought this was sewn together via Y seams but it doesn't look like it is. I hate Y Seams (and they hate me)!
