Another broken spider's web block

I promised my sister I'd start a quilt for her. Since I loved the broken spider's web block so much, I decided to try another one, and used some patriotic fabrics I'd been saving for jubilee year quilt blocks.

Craftsy Block of the Month - Block 6 - Broken Spider Web

Another one I'll definitely do again. There are all kinds of cotton fabrics in here. Some Laura Ashley print that I bought to make my (now 7-year-old) baby boy a quilt and never did. Some scraps from my daughter's school dress. Offcuts from the fabric for my mum's quilt (still in progress). Tiny blue flowery fabric from my very favourite skirt ever....... This block is full of memories.

Craftsy Block of the Month - Block 5 - String Block

This block looked like a lot of hard work, and I wasn't sure if I'd like it. Actually, it's one of the easier ones, and I love it! I'm seriously thinking of making a whole quilt using this method. Perfect for using up tiny scraps of your favourite fabric.
