My “wicked” quilt block is the spiderweb block used to make my What a Tangled Web We Weave quilt, which received an honorable mention in the Des Moines Area Quilters Guild show this October.
The finished size of the quilt is Twin Size, and it takes 20 spiderweb blocks. Here it is spread out on our Queen Size bed:
To make the blocks:
- Cut randomly sized strips of fabric across grain by width of fabric (wof) and sew into strip sets at least 6 1/2 ” wide. (for one block you will need 1 or 2 strip sets, for the Twin size quilt you will need 18-20 strip sets)
- Using a 60-degree ruler, cut alternating triangles from your strips sets in this fashion:
- From background fabric, cut one 5 7/8″ square, cut in half diagonally into two half-square B triangles.
- Also, from background fabric cut two A template pieces, and two Ar (A-Reverse) template pieces. Template is provided here: SpiderwebTemplate
- Add a B triangle to the flat end of two of your strip wedges, and add two A triangles and two Ar triangles to the flat ends of your other strip wedges like this:
- Sew three wedge pieces together to create half a block; repeat:
- Join your two half block pieces together and then square your block:
I fussy cut the inner border from a stripe fabric, it reads “Halloween” over and over…
