#12: 1930's Quilt Block-"The Spider Web Quilt"
The Detroit Times published this Spider Web Quilt block pattern in the 1930's. The accompanying text read:
"An early picture of the little room Martha Washington occupied after the death of General Washington possesses the "Spider Web" quilt upon her bed. It was here that she spent her last days gazing out upon the broad Potomac and you, too, will delight in reproducing this beautiful quilt with this historic significance. This is a patchwork pattern that is simple and easy to make."
Are you familiar with this quilt block? Perhaps it is easier to make than what it appear? What do you think?
