Spinning Faster

Yesterday I sat down to this pretty mess and got busy sewing strips to kites on foundation pieces.
 I chain piece two blocks at a time and soon I had a new row to sew on.  Isn't the back fun with the colors peeking through?
 I was on a roll.  Spinning out blocks like a mad woman.  I ran out of foundation and had to cut more.  Then I ran out of kites.  Lucky me I still have more background.  Glad I got as much as I did from the last time I ran out. Only kids coming home and dinner having to be made stop my whirlwind.

  1. I love your quilt! And one of these days, I want to make one. Do you use muslin for the foundation?

  2. This quilt looks wonderful! Great use of all the stings and color!

  3. Yay! for motivation and progress!:)

  4. Oh, I like this version with the web pieces all the same around. I started one like that many, many years ago but didn't use a foundation and soon things were out of shape so it remains a UFO. The kite fabric you use coordinates so well. Wish I could sit down and sew like the wind. There's not much wind left when I get home from work.

  5. Love the colors too, wonderful, this is a great project.

  6. I see some fun fabrics in your spider web blocks.
