I was getting ahead of myself when I said that the next block in my A.T.A.B. was going to be English Paper Piecing because I was forgetting that the Craftsy Block of the Month classes usually demonstrated two blocks on each technique. So following on from the String Block, here is my version of the Broken Spider Web Block.
I decided to use up a bit more of this and made each section of the block by zig-zagging each selvage down onto of the white fabric.
Once all four sections were completed they were trimmed to size...
and arranged as shown...
then stitched together.
The centre needed a lot of slack taken up as you can imagine so I pebble quilted with a white thread.
This gave the strip section an elevated effect that I like.
Here is a final shot taken inside my shed because the sun outside is far too bright to get a good photo!
Yes, that's right FAR TOO BRIGHT!! which is very unexpected but very welcome.
This good weather is supposed to be with us for about two weeks which for me means lots of fabric painting. This morning I have already completed a number of pieces that have dried very nicely outside :D
Hope the sun is shining on you too!
**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide.
