Spiderweb Quilt

I finally finished my spiderweb quilt.
I made this quilt with scraps and selvages from projects in 2009. I am a bit embarrassed that I made my first block for this quilt 7 months ago.. I was inspired by Katy's spiderweb quilt, then I picked up a Sew Hip! with a spiderweb quilt pattern.
My original plan was to make a block a week, but I simply became bored with this quilt!
(note to self: one big project at a time! start another big project only after the first is finished!)
I used Kona grass for the binding and backing. I still need to slap a label on the back too..

I followed the lines of the spiderweb block for the quilting, and some of the centers were sooo thick to quilt through! This was actually the first quilt that I have quilted myself that wasn't a mini!

Big boy has already dragged the quilt around the house, it has been used for a tent, and Kiki enjoys jumping on the circles like hopscotch..
I am already planning my next quilt too ^^
