my Charlotte's Web quilt!

I've been very lucky to have participated in a couple wonderful sewing bees and one of them ( huge thanks to my [Bee]-eautiful girls ) made me these lovely spiderweb blocks ( by far one of my most favorite quilt blocks to look at!! period! ).   so, when you add THAT little ditty to the fact, that most of you know i'm a complete book worm too... i think, it's the winning combo to inspire more reading of classic novels during the summer months!!...

it even received a "real" quilting job... from my fabulous friend, Angela, finishing the whimsical feel... she really brought an additional layer of richness to this quilt and i owe her one seriously, stiff drink for THAT... during spring market!! LOL ( okay, maybe two drinks! )







I had so much fun designing this quilt from a book... what one would you choose???... i've even thought about making a Twilight one!  I know, it's a bit dated now... but, it's what got me loving all my saucy Romance-Fantasy books! LOL


ps... do you Goodread??? I totally do! it tracks everything i read!! let's be friends!! :P

X, Heather

  13. Your Charlotte's Web quilt is a stunner. I love how you've got background on both sides of the web blocks, framing them beautifully and giving them almost more interest than if they covered the entire quilt top. And the quilting...WOW!! Thank you for showing the back so we could really admire Angela's gorgeous work, too.
