I have never made a spiderweb block before. It's one of those blocks on my very long "Must do one day" / "Fancy a quilt of these" lists, so being asked for them in a Bee has been a perfect way to get stuck in.
I did underestimate just how much time these blocks would take me to put together. Not because they are hard but maybe just because I didn't have a flow for a while and I was dithering about with scraps.
I was a little nervous about drafting my own paper template for these blocks. However, thanks to these great instructions from Narcoleptic in a Cupboard, that part of the process was nowhere near the fearsome task I had conjured in my mind. If you fancy giving it a go, Sarah's instructions are great step by step guide to drafting the paper foundation.
So, my verdict on the spiderweb block? I LOVE it's scrappy loveliness and sharp lines, but I don't see me ever having the patience to make a whole quilt of them myself. Perhaps that's why they're such a popular block to set for our Bee mates?
