Wicked blog hop Oct 29

Welcome to my blog and let me tell you, it is a wicked blog post in more ways than one, or at least it felt like one.  I want to thank why-knot-kwilt and sew we quilt for organzing such a fun and wicked hop.

I thought of this pattern from last year when I was participating in the Fresh & Funky quilting bee.  House of a la mode was responsible for the month of July and offered her spider web quilt block tutorial for us to try.  I couldn't believe how easy and fun it was. Here is my version with the wicked material I picked up.  I hope you like it.

So, getting back to why I feel this is a wicked post.

1. We just had our 3 granddaughters, age 4, 2 or 7 months over for the weekend. Yes, that 3 girls under the age of 5.  overnight!!!! LOL



2. Poppa and I helped my daughter with a swimming birthday party today for our oldest granddaughter.  She will be 5 next week.
 

3. I started and finished this block tonight. Yes that's right, I left it to THE very last minute to complete, even though I had week's to do it. Here are my strips ready to put together.

a quarter of the blocks completed

the back...oh, i noticed some witch's brew got in the picture..heheheheh

ohhh...i think my block is being wicked and hiding under the left over strips.


I see you!!!
TADA!!!!

My wicked spider web quilt block!!  Thank you for looking :)
