Spinning Wheels – 2012 UFO Challenge for July

Quilt # 97
One more UFO completed!

Spinning Wheels was my #3, the number picked by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times to be completed for the July UFO Challenge.

Spinning Wheels 
The blocks were sewn together when I started. The blocks were made using all different stripped fabric along with my own hand-dyed brown fabric and muslin.

Spinning Wheels UFO
I added one border in the same hand dyed fabric.

I quilted the diagonal lines and then stitched spider webs in each square.

I also added some webs along the borders and small spider webs in the corners.

I did not add a label but I signed my name and year on the front of the quilt.
