Work In Progress Wednesday - October 22

Block 5 for my CrazyWhite quilt is finished!
I added beads to the machine embroidered motif in the centre.
Then it was time to add a spider to my web. I looked for inspiration at Flickr, 
you can see them in my gallery Spiders on CQ. My favourite for this block was LouAnne’s spider dangling below the web. I used perle 8 for his legs.
The same spider in a different angle.
All I needed to finish my block was a bold button to break the seam at the bottom. Just take a closer look at my finished block here.
Work In Progress Wednesday is a support group to encourage people to complete languishing projects, Works In Slow Progress or UFO’s.

  1. Such a clean and crisp block. Stylish spider! I like that you have kept the lace piece in the middle so simple, the beads are perfect.
