Joyous Web of Color and More

I'm so in love with this quilt. As it grew on the design wall it lit a fire in me to make all my blocks. It was so fun to watch my scraps become something beautiful. Not that there isn't a certain amount of beauty in a bin of scraps. If it weren't for other obligations this quilt would have a stop border and I would be working on a nice scrappy border. But soon I plan on making this a finish. I can't wait to spread it out at the park while my little girl plays and read a book. Doesn't that sound perfect? Now a special thanks to Lyn for this sweet little quilt for Happy Chemo.

Just a reminder there's a chance to win a fat quarter pack if you donate to this great cause by the end of the month. Thanks again Lyn for helping raise the Quiltometer.

  1. I love your spiderweb quilt, really like the different backgrounds.
    The "quilt-o-meter" ... sounds like something from Austin Powers, try saying it in a Dr. Evil voice, it's fun.
    I didn't know about the fat quarter pack!! Hopefully I'll have lots of competition.

  4. What a great variety of colour and texture - I can just imagine it as a picnic rug. Hope you are able to get back to work on it soon.

    You've had some lovely quilts visiting your blog - very inspirational.
