Today's Trend and Tutorial - Spider Web Blocks

Lately I've noticed quite a few spider web blocks on modern quilting blogs. Surprisingly, this block has been around for decades.

Jacquie Gering of Tallgrass Prairie Studio created a selvage version. Shucks! I was a hoarder of epic proportions before I sighted this darling piece. Selvages were one of the few things I felt like I could throw away without fearing remorse. So much for that.

The Sew Mama Sew blog has a tutorial here.

I love Aneela Hoey's watercolor version, and not just because of her fabulous fabrics!

I've written some instructions, complete with pictures shown below, for your benefit.
