Spiderweb Quilt Finished




These are photos of the finished spiderweb quilt. It's on it's way to our dear friend, Pat. Stars were slightly echo quilted and then criss crossed with a serpentine stitch. Some fancy stitches were done in at least one strip of each section of the spiderwebs using stitches on my machine. Around the black border I used the machine to stitch names of Pat's children and grandchildren--48 in all! Also included a few favorite sayings: charity never faileth, love at home, and I am a child of God. And included the
"label" in the border also instead of putting one on the back. I am very happy with this. Absolutely love the colors--Pat loves red/blue/orange so it's mostly that, with a few materials that have gold on them since she loves that also.

Stopped very briefly before putting shopping away and I DO love the way you write and I also love to two most recent quilts - no time to look further now, MUST PUT SHOPPING AWAY

wow, I love this! The black really sets it off. I think black is probably the least used color in quilts today.

years ago my husband was a missionary among the sioux. one dear lady wanted to make him a quilt--he wanted black in it and she wouldn't do that--sad it was bad luck i think. pat is also sioux, and i knew i wanted to make this with black but checked with her first--she said it's now okay to use black, and i'm so happy because i think it really stands out
