  1. Thank you so much for posting this pattern. I’m planning on making a Spider Web quilt within the next couple weeks using Christmas fabrics. It will make a quick quilt and give as a gift.


  2. Just found your site and I LOVE it. Love your quilts. Can’t wait to this one, it’s amazing.
    I will be back often to check out more of your quilts and designs. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Can’t wait to make this quilt! Looked at other versions but they were mostly paper pieced. I plan to use only 4 or 5 different fabrics. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for the pattern.


  4. I’m italian. I’m very entusiastic of you quilts, particulary this SPIDERWEB QUILT is fantastic. There are so much things that you’ll teach me.
    My english is very bad, but I hope that you understand me at all.
    Sincerely Vania


  5. First time I’ve come across your website. Your quilts for charity are amazing. I’ve looked at most of the patterns and they are visually like a candy store to me–simply beautiful. Still learning to quilt and love doing this art.

    I recently discovered your website and love reading your blogs and viewing your lovely quilts. I’ve gone back to read your earliest blogs and will work my way eventually to the present. I just recently joined a small quilt group that sews for charities and I think that I will give this Spiderweb Quilt a try soon. Thanks for sharing your patterns with us and keep up the good work.

    I love string quilts and especially like your spiderweb. Have a huge heap of scraps, not sorted, that I am going to start foundation piecing. Think I will use your instructions. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for the directions to make this. It is a real eye catcher, looks hard but is a quick easy project. My type of quilt! Awesome!


  9. I love the movement you get from this pattern. I also downloaded the carpenter star. I have only been quilting for about a year (sewing forever). I wanted something a little more challenging (hehe… but with these patterns it will look hard but really wasnt) Thanks so much for the patterns.

    I came across your website in June of 2012 and I am very impressed with your quilt designs, especially the Spiderweb Quilt. I downloaded the pattern and worked on it as my summer project. I used multiple colored scraps of fabric and every block is uniquely interesting. The movement of this pattern is what drew me to wanting to make one.

    Thanks for sharing your talent.

    My sister in Canada told me of your web site and I spent a few delightful hors looking at all your scrap quilt patterns. And The Spinders Web was the one I found most intersting, Like previous quilters I used a veritity of scraps and was amazed at the result. Number two is now on its way to becing completed and I was more than pleased to find a block that I enjoy doing and finding a good use for more scraps.
    I also liked the idea of making one from Christmas fabric but that can wait until next winter.

    Thank you so very much.

    I love spiders and spider webs and would like to make a quilt featuring them. My first instinct was to pin one of the photos but I could not get a link to pop up. Thank you for being so clear about your copyright. I have not and will not pin but instead will print it.
    I think I will make a curtain for the window in the foyer. The window is a good size and that is where Senna cat likes to stand guard. She is not black although she is a dark colour. I might skip the batting and just sew a fabric with spiders as the backing. That way when the sun shines through, there will be shadow spiders on the webs!
