July is Sugard Limes’ month in Bee Modern and due to an impending move she had to ship her fabric early so I wasn’t really planning on working on it any time soon. But as more and more of my fellow bees started finishing their blocks I started to feel like I should get a move on!
Claudia sent us various prints from Hello Betty, I like the colors and was happy to play with the blue/red pairing. Since it was an “anything goes” type of month I knew I wanted to do something scrappy but I was leery of any block design that would require me to line up a bunch of seams and corners so a spiderweb block seemed like the perfect choice. It’s scrappy but the pieces don’t need to be the same dimensions so there isn’t the same concern about the seams lining up.
I’ve never made one of these blocks before but I found some instructions that have you starting with a 12.5 inch block and then piecing off of that. I didn’t have a 12.5 inch block in the pieces that Claudia sent me to I decided to make one.
The square is then cut into four triangles.
The triangles then serve as the base for the pieced strips.
The four triangles are then sewn back together.
For a little while I started panicking that I wouldn’t have enough fabric, so I decided to add in some yellow Timeless Treasure fabric, I think it coordinates well.
