BaCK to SPiDeR WeB BlocKs

Early last year I sewed scraps into strips & trimmed them with a "wedge" ruler. 
I joined 8 wedges together to form one 16 inch block. 
However I only managed to finish 2 complete blocks.
I started playing with it again this week & took the easy "joining" route & made them into "squares" using white fabric as setting triangles. 
I decided to use foundation paper pieced 8 inch blocks to compliment the design. 
I'll use these blocks around the 6 centre spider web blocks... almost like a border.
I only made one FPP block so far... BuT I think I will like the layout.

I am off to a sewing ReTReAT tomorrow for four days.

I've packed lots of projects (including scraps for the above project) & hope to also get a few quilts quilted & bound.
Of course I have to work on Forest Friends for my NeW grandie "BoY"  too, so I'll have plenty to keep me occupied.

I managed to make another 3 bags for children in the "crisis centres". 
Each fully lined bag includes a book, coloured pencils & a few bouncing balls.
My SIL kindly donated a few knitted toys to the bags as well.

Another block in the Fancy Forest quilt was put together too.
A pretty aqua/turquoise coloured OWL... 
Then last night at FNwF... I made a second Hedgehog... this time in YeLLoW...

I hope you all had a very successful night of crafting.

I will be away for awhile... so until next post, 
please stay safe & EnJoY your sewing.

FiNaL RounD

 in the SAHRR... hosted by Quilting Gail... found HeRe.
I added two PIN WHEELS between the "Square in a Square" in my final border.
I once again used scrap HST that were already sewn in pairs to form my PWs.
My Community quilt is to size so now I need to sandwich & quilt it... but... unfortunately that will have to wait until I return home.
Thank you Gail for organising this group... it's been FuN.
