Spiderweb on the frame

 I know that I have a hard time staying on track but that's just ME! :)  Yesterday I had planned on doing my dresden centers but then I got an email from my good friend, Janet offering me some deep mustard fabric to try for the centers, so I believe that I will see how that looks before I start with the brown.  

Since I decided to put my Dresden's on hold for a few days I loaded a quilt on the frame.  It is my Spiderweb quilt that I finished back in July of 2012.  I started it in June of 2011, LOL so it had taken me a few years to get to this point.  Oh well, at least it will be finished soon.  
I had several red bobbins ready to go but they where a tiny bit darker than the red in the quilt.  Not that it mattered really but I wasn't sure if I wanted that DARK red thread going all though my spiderweb blocks.  I thought since they had so much movement going on that I might just use something that blended with the blocks a little better so I went with a beige/gold color.  It does show up in the borders but that is fine, I just didn't want the blocks to look so busy.  I got a few passes quilted and I think I will stop for the night and finish it up tomorrow.  The quilt measures 74x74 so it will not take too long to quilt.  I'm using a design called Dazzle.  
Here is the view that I had from behind my quilting machine.  LOL!  The boys having fun with their quilt.  :) Leo kept laying on his cars. :)  
I think Leo finally got tired and moved to his own quilt....boys.  LOL!  

 Hopefully tomorrow I can post a photo of my Spiderweb quilt completely quilted.  I have the binding ready....somewhere, I just have to find it.

I love the Spiderweb. Glad you can get to that while you wait for the fabric I'll be sending tomorrow.

I think I used a variegated thread when I quilted my spider web quilt, but I really think anything would work!
