My July to-do list is insane. Stupidly insane. And given that all of next week will be taken up with me playing cafeteria lady for our church's VBS, I've got a lot to get done this coming week. I decided to get a "head start" by whipping up my blocks for this month's do.Good Stitches quilt. Our quilter for the month asked for red, pink, and aqua spiderweb blocks.
I have to say that I'm not a big fan of the way spiderweb quilts look. I know lots of people are into them but, as with dresdens, I'm gonna have to count myself out of that fan club. Sewing these blocks made me realize that I don't like MAKING spiderweb quilts either. (editor's note: I never blame my quilters for picking blocks I don't like. Other people in our circle were ecstatic about these! I'm just saying.) These two blocks took me FOUR HOURS. I'm a fast sewer usually, so for me this was the equivalent of fabric torture.
I really did like the colors together, though--gave me lots of ideas for future projects.
Anyway, one thing of a hundred checked off my list. YES!! Ha.
