Spiders in my Garden

I finally finished this colorful quilt...I really enjoyed working with the colors. I did find a patterned fabric on a black background to use in the main blocks...but found it to be too busy and big for the size block I wanted to use (you can see below)
Sooooo.....I ironed a fusible web on the back on the patterned fabric and cut out individual shapes and collaged them together.
Much better I first glance, they might appear to look the same, but not so...all from the same fabric but just a little different from block to block.
In looking for a backing fabric, I wanted to use one of the colors from the front. I did love this green print on right but the sales person mentioned it was a Halloween me it's also a garden fabric...there are spiders in gardens...right?...I wish I had found it sooner as I would have incorporated some into the front...but so be it...

I quilted it with an overall stippling stitch free motion style...
So here goes..."Spiders in my Garden"...done and ready for the show at the NC Arboretum.


  1. Love the colors! Makes you feel like you are in a garden! Spiders and all!
