{Post #970} Baby Spiderweb Quilt

Here's the quilting progress on my blue and tan spiderweb quilt.  I wanted to try a couple new things.  The one thing I aim for when I machine quilt is not having to break the thread many times and making it evenly quilted all over.

This is about 48" square.  Over the weekend I watched the baby's older 3 siblings (with lots of help from my husband and children).  I did manage to piece a section of batting from scrap strips and piece a backing for this quilt.

Since this is a spiderweb quilt, I thought it would be neat to quilt some spiderwebs in the...well...spiderwebs.  They turned out neat and I only had to stop and start in 3 places (I think) within the body of the quilt.

I wanted to try some feathers, so I am doing those in the 4-pointed "stars" between the spiderwebs.  I am liking these although it's my first time.

In the border I just did a meandering pattern in navy blue.

The spiderwebs were quilted in navy blue and the 3-looped feathers in tan...both to match the background fabrics.  Sort of! 

I only have about 5 more stars to quilt but must call it a night.
