Has it ever seemed wasteful to you not to put your selvage to some good use? Jackuie Gering of Tall Grass Prairie Studio is a pioneering modern style quilter, and this design is innovative and interesting! Jackuie has put together a wonderful tutorial to walk us through every step of her process. There is a second link to a tutorial for creating a template for the kites you will need for this project, and that is by Bonnie K. Hunter of Quiltville. More from Jacquie:
"I've had so many requests for how I made the selvage spiderweb quilt, I thought I'd do a quick tutorial of how I adapted Bonnie's Quiltville spiderweb tutorial to make my quilt. I'm not going to repeat Bonnie's instructions for how to make the template. You can find her instructions on the Quiltville site."
And more on the template from Bonnie:
"String quilts are one of my favorite methods of scrap piecing. I pieced this quilt several years ago, and have had requests for the pattern, I just haven't gotten around to making up the tutorial! So here you go. The following directions will show you how I draft my template for the spiderweb block, and then complete the piecing on scrap paper. This pattern makes a 10 3/4" block!"
