Wishcasting Wednesday

What do I wish to shed?

three things....
the pile of stuff in the basement. I've been harsh in throwing away...but not harsh enough
these 20 lbs of medicine weight I've gained over the last 2 yrs
this little attitude I've got going about a certain topic

with breaths it will all come.

It is my bee month

and while it took a bit more time than I had ever figured it would (--that is going to be my motto for this year! the whole year.)
Anyways, the bags are packed and headed out to the door to the other participants. This month I'm going to make a quilt I'm calling Chocolate Cherry Mint. I'm using all of these strips to make a spiderweb quilt. I used the quilt here as my inspiration. I made some modifications and decided to use a 12.5" block. I think this site also gives darn good directions.
After cutting my 12.5" square in half, I ended up with 2 triangles that look like this: ETA, please cut those triangles in half and then begin adding the strips.
The triangles need to be marked for specific fabric placement in order for me to get a quilt with 1 large circle and 1 smaller circle:
Also, I need to remember that in order for the quilt to come together that I need triangles marked for right and left.
After sewing on strips...and over time I will also get wonky with sewing on the strips..this is what the individual spidey arms will look like

I need to trim these and sew together. I will update the blog with the pictures when I complet them. I am excited to be working on this quilt and cannot wait for the spider blocks to come back from the other participants.
