Spider’s Den, a quilt block from Nancy Martin’s Perpetual Calendar, is the block that I have chosen to play with this week.
The block is drawn with a 12 x 12 grid.
This is how it looks when set side-by-side in a straight set:
And here is how it looks set with sashing and cornerstones:
Spider’s Den makes a wonderful two color quilt!
But let’s add some blue; just for fun!
Now let’s throw in a crossing block and a snowball block and see what we get:
Reminds me of baseball; must be because I’ve been listening to my team in spring training. I’m glad the baseball season is almost here!
Next, I’ve taken out most of the blue and added a different crossing block. There is a small change in the Spider’s Den block, too.
Here’s how the block looks when set on point:
Next, Spider’s Den is still set on point, but set with an alternate block. I think it makes a great red and white quilt!
This next one is similar to one of the straight sets up above:
Last, and maybe least (my least favorite), is a crowded design:
The last one has too many elements competing for attention. Or maybe it is a simple matter of moving the color around. I may work on that another day.
