oh happy day!


I'm done piecing the strips for my spiderweb blocks. I have a *few* strips leftover. (Actually, a basket full.) They would work in any string quilt. If you want a chance to win them, leave me a comment on this post. I'll pick a name on Tuesday. One comment per person please.

All my attemps of getting nice fabrics lately have ended in nothing but tears so I could do with a nice surprise.

Can't wait to see your finished quilt. I've been slowly saving up scraps so I can make one of my own in the future.

Lee D said...

Who can't use more scraps?? How generous of you. I joined your second 9-patch quilt along, but carried away and have made 40 plus squares.

beccy said...

Blimy! I wish my blog was this popular :) Well done finishing your piecing, I'd love to win your scraps - scraps have so many more applications that people think (some people even throw them away!)I'd love to make a "Crazy Mom Quilts homage bow bag" from them :)

I love scraps!

Joan said...

I am making my first quilt in 25 years, with only two other hand tied quilts under my belt previous to this one. I joined your 2nd round quilt along. You are my inspiration. I have 12 blocks made as of today and have 12 more cut out. So I am a little ahead and I thought I would be hopelessly behind. One block a day is so manageable. I am going to sew the next 12 one block one per day. My nine patch is made with 3" x 3" squares. I thought I would find this easier and I do. I read up how to achieve straight seams. They are getting much better. I would love to be better at rotary cutting. Oh well one thing at a time Rome wasn't built in a day. Thank You Amanda Jean. Above all else doing this helps me feel good about myself.

Leftovers, scraps, whatever....I'd love to have them! Thanks!

Jenn said...

I believe it was your blog where I first saw a spiderweb strip quilt and I knew then that I loved it and eventually wanted to make one! Granted, I have lots of scraps of my own, but none are already in strip shape and it would be such a treat to work with someone elses scraps....just like having new fabric!!! Please put my name in the mix! Thanks,
Jenn

Jamie said...

Me please! Spiderwebs are on my to quilt list.

Melissa said...

I drool over your quilts on a daily basis and since I don't have a big stash I've been saving my scraps for a string quilt for some time. It'd be awesome to have some more!

I'd love it if you checked out my blog, I think you'd like some of the quilts :)

Congratulations on finishing the spiderweb blocks.
After you first showed it I was so compelled to try it myself. I thought I would start small. It ended up to be 90" square.

Maybe they could come my way.
