After cutting my 12.5" square in half, I ended up with 2 triangles that look like this: ETA, please cut those triangles in half and then begin adding the strips.
and while it took a bit more time than I had ever figured it would (--that is going to be my motto for this year! the whole year.)
Anyways, the bags are packed and headed out to the door to the other participants. This month I'm going to make a quilt I'm calling Chocolate Cherry Mint. I'm using all of these strips to make a spiderweb quilt. I used the quilt here as my inspiration. I made some modifications and decided to use a 12.5" block. I think this site also gives darn good directions.
I need to trim these and sew together. I will update the blog with the pictures when I complet them. I am excited to be working on this quilt and cannot wait for the spider blocks to come back from the other participants.
