Wonky Web. There are two pages of them. Page 1 has triangle 1 and 3 on it. Page 2 has triangle 2 on it. You will need two of each, for a total of 6 triangles.
The seam allowance is already calculated into the triangle (the dotted line) so you can cut on the solid line.
You will also need:
1/3 yard colored material for background (cut into strips 3" strips)
1/3 yard black material for web and binding (cut into 2" strips)
15" x 15" piece of fabric for back
15' x 15" piece of batting
The next step is to start paper piecing. You will alternate between a solid color (in my pictures, I used white) and black. You will need strips of the solid color that range from 2 to 3 inches in width. Black strips of 1.5 inches will work fine for the web.
Fold the paper back, like in the picture above, and cut a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
In the picture below, I was trying to show you the 1/4 inch seam, but look at the scary eyes that showed up on my ruler! It was the reflection from the light. Weird, huh?
Here's a better picture of what I was trying to show you. You will want to measure and cut this 1/4 inch because the black spider web is only a 1/4 inch. So you don't want it getting too big and bulky.
And next time, do like the picture below. Place the white piece you're using down approximately where the seam will be. Fold it over and make sure that you have enough fabric to completely cover the area. It will save you seam ripping and sanity!
Go ahead and get all the triangles done. Then press them, then trim them using the paper on the back as the guide.
Now, if you flip them over to the back where you see the lines from the template, your numbers should be 1, 2, 3. The next step is to turn them back over. And when they are right sides up, the number 3 will be all the way to the left, then 2, then 1 all the way on the right. If you get totally confused, just make sure the arrow is pointing to the center, then match up the lines of the web.
So far, so good. Time to add the last pieces. You will use black to create the strands of the web that go from the center out. So cut yourself a piece of 2 inch black and see the next step.
Line up the black with the edge of the paper, and sew along the long line.
Now it's time to sew the triangles together. They will naturally lay down to the side, and I would recommend leaving them that way, because if you iron the seams open, it will do funky things in the center when you're ready to sew the two pieces together.
Sew the 3, 2, 1 together. Then sew the other 3, 2, 1 together. You will have two pieces. Sew the long side together, like in the picture below.
When it comes to binding, I didn't want a very thick binding, so I took a piece of 2 inch black and sewed it directly onto the front of the web. (I don't have pictures of this step.) I did not fold the binding before I sewed it. It was simply a piece of 2 inch fabric that I lined up along the edge.
At the corners, I folded them like you would do with any binding, and went around the whole piece. When I was done, I turned the piece right side up, and ironed the binding down flat.
Then, take part of the binding that is not sewn down, and fold it in half. Match it up with the edge of the piece. In the picture below, you can see my binding that is already sewn on and ironed from the front. Then it is folded and ironed to create a seamless edge. Then you will take the binding and fold it over the quilt, like normal, and pin and sew.
Thank you, Jenna for allowing me to share this! I hope that if you make this, you will share your photos with me in my flickr group SoSarahSews. And go ahead and follow my blog, because there's more where that came from!
