I'm Not a Bright Person...


...so how did I end up with so many bright fabric scraps?

I'm using up smaller scraps too small for further Heartstring quilts. This is my first spider web (or is it cob web?) quilt since my previous attempt using my 30s fabrics that did not go well. So, this is practice before I return to my more controlled spider web (or is it cob web?) I'm using scraps so didn't get too concerned or rip out a piece I saw turned wrong side up. I'm not even concerned that some of the webs are touching and some aren't (at least I don't think I am. Really, I'm not).  After all...I'm not a bright person ;-) and I'm using up scraps and I'm practicing building a better web. It's a MODERN quilt, I say. Oh, what a tangled web we weave....

And I'm looking for the bottom of the scrap boxes. And I'm linking up to Connie's Quilting by the River linky party.

Well, I am a bright person and I love this so far! This is going to be an awesome quilt when you finish!

This looks wonderful! Scrap quilts have so much charm when the pieces don't match. I usually prefer a more controlled, tailored look but my current string quilt is so much fun. I use non-woven, non-fusible interfacing as a foundation - I find it's much more stable than muslin. I wrote a brief post about it here:

Your Bright scrap spider web is looking good. I started one last year but it is in a box now. I may get it out soon. I really like the scrappy look.

Looks great to me. I'm not a bright person either [take that both ways! lol] but I do love them in a Spider block. Super. Nice job.

Sometimes I'm a bright person and other times I'm not but I sure like the looks of your quilt!! Thanks for sharing.
