At last! I decided not to blog until I had the spiderweb quilt basted and ready to quilt.
One of the things I enjoy most about finishing a quilt top is putting the fabrics I have used back in general circulation. Until the top is complete, the fabric stays in quarantine so that I don't accidentally use a piece that I later need.
Thirties fabrics are not my favourites and if you asked me a few years ago, I would have shown no interest in them. Well, I have learned "never say never". With few exceptions, the actual patterns still don't speak to me, but the colours of the thirties fabrics work together in a scrap quilt to create a happy, bright effect. I'll be using more of them, which is a good thing since I have quite a few unused 1.5" strips left over.
