Design wall Monday

Well, I did start the spiderweb selvage quilt.  This is one that I just plan to work on bits at a time between other projects.  It's pretty easy to piece, just a little bit tedious to pick the ''right'' selvages (I want each one to have a bit of words or color dots on the selvage to give it a more interesting look than just a white strip of selvage), and then trimming the triangles afterward, etc.  I picked a white on white for my foundation fabric because I had a HUGE chunk of it that was on clearance at my LQS because it had holes in it - I just cut my triangles and anything that had holes in it where it would not have selvage sewn over it, I tossed, but most have worked out where the holes were where the selvages would be, so that was perfect!  Anyhow, here's a pic of my first blocks.  I have no idea how big I want this to be, I'll just work on it until I'm tired of making blocks and stop I guess! LOL!  Check out the other design wall Monday posts at Patchwork Times!
