Black Cat Crossing Wicked Hop-My Day!!

Many thanks once again to the wonderful Madame Samm and to Wendy for hosting this Wicked Sew and Tell and allowing me play along!!

 Here is the half yard bundle of Black Cat Crossing that I used for my project:

I am normally not much of a purple fabric lover but I like the pop of color this has with those dots and stars.  And ooooooooh, there are black birds and cats. 

I chose a pattern that I have used many times in the past, The X Plus Block...also known as Spool Block by Nancy Cabot.  I love this block pattern and it always does so well with these type of prints.

Here is my Spiderweb quilt top in its photo shoot...
 Here it is posing with the itty bitty tiny harvest of apples we had this year...wasn't a good year for apples in our backyard orchard  :(

Here is a detail shot...isn't that cobwebby neutral from the Black Cat Crossing line perfect for this?  I ordered it from Bear Creek Quilting Company.
 Kind of looks like Spiderwebs in the Beans, eh?

I chose to do straight line quilting on this top and am very pleased with the final quilt...
 Here it is amongst the pumpkins...
 And among the posies...

 Love those red leaves popping up on our property...

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to stop by all the others posting today and leave them your comment love!

Wonderful pattern for this fabric - it does look like spider webs!

Katherine said...

Gorgeous quilt! You chose the perfect fabric combination for this design and you are so right about that background fabric (will add that to my shopping list ;o). Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful quilt (and those amazing leaves... stunning!).

Judy B said...

Your quilt is beautiful! Due to lack of moisture this year, our Fall leaves are just falling, no color :(

Anita said...

Love your spiderweb quilt, the colors are gorgeous!
In my part of the world we had a fantastic apple harvest, the summer was extremely warm and long, and the fall was fantastic. We harvested lots of huge SWEET apples, usually the apples are small and can only be used for cooking. Almost one month longer on the tree before frost came made wonders for the apples.
I am sure the harvest will be better for you next year!

Charlene McCain said...

Your quilt is stunning! You did such a good job using the different colors of this fabric line. Love your pictures!

Heleen Groot said...

Your quilt is adorable Kris! I love that pattern but have never made it.. but the cobwebby fabric is perfect for the background.. Kind of like a spider is rambling amongst the latticework! Congrats on making top honors today!

Beautiful. Funny about not being much of a purple person. Sometimes I see quilts and think WOW those colors really look good together I never would have thought or picked that. Makes me think outside the box for the future though. Nice job!

Dorian said...

A great pattern for those lovely fabrics. You did a wonderful job.

Your quilt is wonderful and your autumn pictures are spectacular! How close together did you do your straight line quilting? Would love to see a close up of the quilting.

madebymeinred said...

It's perfect! You really show off the colors and fabrics using that pattern. I especially like it without a border fabric and the orange binding really sets it off. Wonderful quilt.

Patty D from NC said...

Kris, fantastic job with the quilt and the pictures. it really showcases this fun fabric line.

evelyn said...

Love the view of the trees-what a splendid sight. Your quilt is beautiful.Spider web fabric is perfect background.

Suze said...

The Spool Block is perfect to highlight the fabrics. You did a magnificent job on the quilt. The orange pop binding is wonderful, too. The quilt is wonderful in many settings. The red maple leaves are beautiful. It's still hot here and the leaves aren't turning yet. So, it's nice to see the fall leaves in all their majesty. We do get fall, it's just often later here in Oklahoma. It's even supposed to be a wet winter - so you never know if it's going to rain, snow, or ice. Thanks for participating in the hop and sharing a marvelous project and being a great inspiration.
