Spider Web Quilt ~ Show and Tell

This big beautiful web was made by Kat
inspired by my free

Kat wanted to make a bigger quilt so she started with 4.5" squares.

When it came time to cut the curves, Kat got really creative
and used a hula hoop for the first cut 
and then used the scrap from that as a template for the next cuts.

What a great idea!

Here are Kat's helpful hints with making a larger web:

"A couple of things I learned:
1. When the quilt gets this big, if you cut your 45 degree wedges -before- adding the curved webbing, you wind up with something less than 45 degrees.
2. If you make an extra section to make up for the smaller-than-45-degree wedges, you have to fuse fabric in the middle like you would for a Dresden plate quilt."

Kat says her quilt is a small lap quilt.

Hearing from Kat and seeing the photo of her quilt makes my quilty day!

If you have made a Spider Web Quilt from my tutorial,
I would love to see a photo.
