Halloween on Main Street

We'll be ready on Main Street when Halloween comes 'round.  My spiderweb project is a finished flimsy and I'm calling it Cobwebs

I used the white on black spiderweb print for the borders, as so many readers advised, and I think it was a good choice as it sets off the bright colors in the blocks so well.  I'm still not sure about the binding:  black, dark gray, orange? - but I can decide after it is quilted. 

If you are interested in making something similar, the tutorial I used for the spiderweb blocks is on the Quilt It blog.  Be careful how you handle the finished spiderweb blocks.  You end up with a lot of bias edges on the outer edges of the blocks and they can easily become distorted. 


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
