Walkin' in a Spiderweb...

Piecing these spiderweb/stars is fun and quick. I've used many of those little scraps that are stuffed into that top drawer...the triangles derived while making binding, leftover strips from log cabin blocks and strips of backing trimmed from a quilted quilt. I've done one of every basic color, now I need to do tan and gray, a red-yellow-blue block, a red and aqua block, etc. or should I? Maybe I should just keep the blocks these basic colors, repeating them. What do you think?









































I have some time to think about it and get your input because I'm not home at my sewing machine, I'm in AZ., could be at Nancy's sewing machine. However, we are playing which does include traipsing to quilting stores (some in Albuquerque. N.Mex. and in Phoenix). I really shouldn't let you know how many quilting stores I've been to in the last week. I will tell that I haven't purchased at every one of them. I will soon return to my home and sewing machine, but for now we are dreaming and scheming the next few quilting projects.
Take Care~~

I love everyone of them. I most likely would now start to repeat the colors. I have to say that I just love the many quilt shops in Phoenix. I think I have visited everyone, when I come to see my parents.

I think I like the orange one the best! Althought the green and red ones are pretty awesome too. I also think you should stick to monochromatic blocks, and just repeat. Thanks for coming to visit!

Definitely DON'T mix colors. I know because I have seen them in person.

Love your take on the Spiderwebs! Sticking with monochromatic is interesting. Another option would be to mix two complentary colors, like orange and blue....
And thank you for stopping by...
