The spiderweb blocks are in one piece, and I'll let it stew for a while before I think about borders etc.
The blocks are all made with the same strip measurements; 4 1.5"strips sandwiched between a 2.5 strip each side. It made for easy sewing, as all the seams matched nicely. I squared the octagons up by adding triangles on the corners ( 5.5"squares cut on the diagonal) and then added a 2.5"flippy corner to make those spools where the blocks join.
And it's not as if I don't have anything else to be going on with. There's the Lady of the Lake blocks, abandoned as leader enders because I have to concentrate too hard on them.
And the Album blocks,which are easy, but I have no more cut out, so it's back to choosing fabric for the next batch.
There's just no accounting for the fact that I suddenly HAD to cut out a Stack & Whack quilt on Friday night.
Mereth says it's a shameless ploy to quickly use up 3.6 metres, and she might be right there. However, in my defence I've had the material waiting for just this purpose, and it felt like the right time to actually do it.
I was determined to just kit up the pieces for future sewing, but it's almost impossible not to sew a few blocks, just to see what they look like. And it's usually so much fun that you sew a few more, and before you know it there's 20 of them made, and only 30 left for later. A good quilt is a quick quilt, apparently.
Just as well I have a whole drawer of fabric earmarked for S&W quilts. I'll polish this one off and go on to the next.......
