How to make a Spiderweb quilt block

For quilters seeking for a confident beginner-friendly project, this simple spiderweb octagon quilt block is the perfect project.

This block has strips of fabric giving the illusion of a simplified spiderweb.

The fabric is typically cut into strips and stitched together.

For quilters who wish to experiment with various fabric combinations and color schemes to produce an original and striking quilt, this block is a fantastic choice.

Check out some of the different designs I came up with at the end of the video by joining Patreon.

Foundation piecing paper

I printed my templates on to freezer paper for this demo but you can use just regular copy paper or even special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer. 

I recommend printing the templates on to freezer paper. You can get the details to the ready paper I use on My quilting tools page.

  1. Sorry, Teresa, but I can not continue with your great tutorials since you have started using patreon. I won’t put my personal and banking info out on the internet. Been hacked & once was enough for me.
    Good luck in your new business model. I will have to Un-subscribe.
