Fantastic Selvage Spiderweb Quilt


This beautiful little selvage spiderweb quilt was made by Cindy at liveacolorfullife. She made this for Jennifer as part of a swap on flickr. See the name "Jennifer" in the blue selvage in the bottom photo? Nice touch. I love this design, the quilting, and the striped binding. Great selvages, too. It's perfect. See Cindy's blog at: http://www.aroundtheblockdesigns.blogspot.com/ and: www.sewingontheedge.etsy.com.

This is a stand-out quilt. I think what helps make it so is the pearl cotton big stitch. What a nice enhancement to an already pretty piece.

I'm sure Jennifer was thrilled. I really like the big stitching.

Wow, this quilt is gorgeous! What a lucky partner to receive this in a swap! I always love the clever placements Cindy does with her selvage projects. Love that hand stitching!

This one really is a nice piece! I think I could do a small one like this, thanks for the inspiration!

I love the extension of the design into the border - it's a beautiful mini quilt.

Wow! I love it. The fabric, the piecing and the quilting!
