I love this one!! How big are you planning to make it?

Ashley said...

That looks soooo cool! I've asked my mother-in-law to teach me how to quilt. We'll see how it goes. Now I need to get my hands on a sewing machine... Good luck!

Dana said...

Oh my!!! That is FABULOUS!

Sheri said...

You are such an amazing quilter. I'm going to try my hand at the ragged squares quilt as I think even I can do that one, I hope.

I hope you don't mind me posting this but a dear friend's baby is waiting for a heart transplant and another friend is having a guilt giveaway to drum up awareness for this baby and for organ donation, etc. The address for the quilt giveaway is http://a-mama-drama.blogspot.com/2008/11/blog-post.html - thanks!

So. Very. Beautiful.

And it looks very time consuming with all those itty-bitty pieces of fabric. Just beautiful.

I love this quilt! What a good way to use scraps. I doubt I'll ever have the time/patience to put such a quilt together. We'll see...

I love it. This is the kind of thing I want to do when I've been quilting long enough to actually have some scraps. :)

I'm so jealous of all the time you have to sew.

Amy said...

denice said...

that is an amazing quilt. i bought the book that has this pattern in it. it is so cool.

you say this is a scrappy quilt? or maybe you called it from your stash? do you coordinate colors in any way or do you just close your eyes and go for it?

Sarah and Jack said...

I wouldnt have imagined I would love this pattern as much as I do. Anxious to see the finished product.

Patty H. said...

Really cute! I actually just did a square of this for a quilting bee I'm participating in to see if I liked it...verdict is: I love it! I'm cleaning out my scrap stash like nobody's business!

Here is a link to the square I did:

Jellybean Soup Company said...

Love Love LOVE this! I would also love it if you would log how many hours you spend on a quilt like this! ;) Or, maybe that would deter you from making more beautiful quilts in the future, and we can't have that!!

alanajo said...

Thats beautiful, but OMG.. wow.. looks complicated.

Мария Доричева said...

Amanda, you inspired me to try this block too. I did not sit down to do any sewing for so long (over a year). Thank you.

This is what I have done so far - http://www.flickr.com/photos/zayasa/2998631643/

amandajean said...

tine and denitza,

I'm not sure how big I am going to make this, but I'm wanting a KING. I think it might end up being a lap or twin. I guess I'll see when I burn out. :0)

you'll see my finished spider top includes some of those yummy Denyse Schmidt fabrics you got. What a score!! I sure wish she'd come out with that like in a new range of colors or re-release them!

I know you hear this all of the time but seriously, I can't believe how much quilting you get done! And with little ones!! Your quilts are so fresh and beautiful and I love visiting your quilting world. Hope you're feeling better soon. x

Thanks to your inspiration, I have just started a spiderweb quilt. I just love it, and love working with the small pieces of fabric. I've only been a quilter for the last few months and now I am definitely addicted. You can see my first block here - http://icyimac.wordpress.com/
