pezzy spiderweb









The pezzy spiderweb is my 2013 spring string fling. It finished at 62" by 76" on Quiters Dream Request (thinnest) cotton batting, hand quilted in perle cotton no 16. It is nice and heavy with a lovely drape,  very colorful and happy! The finished blocks measures 14.5" after quilting. 
Not the first and probably not my last quilt using this great old pattern. I started making these blocks last  year, but really dove into the string bin this spring. Rachels fun festival of strings gave me an extra push to finishing it up   ; ) Thank you Rachel!
If you take a look, you will find LOTS of inspiration there...

Love it!

(self-talk: "No, no, no, no, no, you may NOT run off and start one right this red-hot minute! Not until at least ONE current WIP gets finished." )

What a beautiful quilt! Neat idea to quilt it with perle cotton 16--I'm going to have to look for that.

Wonderful work! This one is so happy and carefree. I don't think I've seen a spiderweb before that had this vibe.
