Spotted: A Rainbow of Spider & String Blocks

>> Wednesday, September 1, 2010

I am loving spiderweb and string blocks lately and thought how pretty they'd be in a rainbow color scheme ... how's this for a gorgeous source of inspiration?

Do you have any other tutorials for these blocks you've used? Are you liking string and spiderweb blocks as much as I am?

Spiderweb blocks are fab to make. It was my chosen block in our quilting bee. You can see a pic of my rainbow spiderweb here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bothybird/4703148106/in/set-72157623880482109/
It was such fun. Don't yet have a piccie of the fully sewn up top.

i love string blocks. i haven't tried the spiderwebs, but i have plans to do one!

seems everyone in my bees lately are choosing strings, including me. mine last month for scrapBEElooza, and strings for this month in both scrapBEElooza and bee pieceful. they're easy and wonderful to look at.
