Spider Web String Quilt

This very up-to-date spider web string quilt was made by GoingSewCrazy. The crisp white sets off those pretty colorful prints just right.

Who would have guessed that in 2010 we'd like chartreuse...next to turquoise and kelly green too! Years ago I would have said "Ewww!"Now I think chartreuse goes with everything. What does that mean? That I just ride the tide of fashion (although usually about 10 years late)? I don't care; I'm just going to enjoy it.

When I was little my Mom told me that green and blue don't go together, red and pink were out of the question too. I think we're having more fun now, Mom too.
