Spider Web Quilt - Row X Row

I'm taking part in a Row X Row Robin on the Mailblocks quilting group - trying to get a little experience with "sane" quilting and building up my confidence with it. This is the first Row to come my way to be worked on. Bridgett chose the Spiderweb block for her quilt, providing the sheets for paper piecing it as well as the main blue colour fabric. Above you can see a sample of one of the 12" blocks I made for my row.

Here is the quilt top with my row added to the original one by Bridgett. These blocks were a hoot to do! I loved using all the bits and pieces of scraps of various quilting cottons I have around. It is a true scrap quilt - completely random - and I loved working on it. I think I will have to make one of these myself one of these days!

I really like the idea of using all the bits and pieces in the drawers. Thank you for refresing my mind with this pattern. I have seen it before ofcourse but it is so easy to forget those things when one is busy with 100 other items :))

I love the string blocks!
And, your stitching is absolutely gorgeous!! (In your other posts,) I would love to try my hand at that, I have some crazy quilts that could use some embellishment. Just lovely!!
(I'm on the yahoo group Quilting on a budget too, welcome!!)
