The Spiderweb Selvage quilt top

The spiderweb selvage quilt top (aka: the 'clown' quilt) assembly is DONE!  I am so excited about this one!  I normally piece my backings with scraps from the front, but it will be much easier to quilt if this one has a one piece backing.  Plus, it's heavy enough already, don't need to add anymore unnecessary weight!  The weather is really dark and dismal and rainy out, so I am going to have to settle for an 'on the bed' photo to share with y'all.

200 triangles make up 25 blocks - and I think it measures approx 80x80 .   Whew!  This one was one of the most time consuming quilt tops ever!  I think it might run a tie with my wedding ring quilt I made in 1991.....
