One block, three names...

Well, three that I can find at this stage!

I had admired a quilt called Tussie Mussie, by 

Christine Vlasic...

Photo was taken from Granny Loz Blogspot

Then remembered I had made a similar block a few 

years back.

Slowly the memory of it came back....

It was a free one from Craftsy by "No Hats in House"!

She called it Boston Pavement.

This was the one I made all those years ago.

I wasn't happy with my colour placement so it went 

to the Block Orphanage.

Further research found another reference to it here,

where it is called a Spider Web block!

It is apparently a variation found in Barbara 


Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, referenced here 

where it has even more names!

So I thought it was time to make some more!

This version is a 12" paper pieced block,

one of my favourite forms of stitching!

I think I'll need to play around with fabric choices  

a bit more and getting that centre right....

I have recently re-discovered the joys of 

'reading with my ears'!

After about a day, I am nearly already halfway 

through it!

And I get to sew at the same time!

(I inadvertently published this post, half written about a month ago, so don't be confused if some of this looks familiar, it was me, not you!)

Happy sewing!



  1. Cute quilt. I made this pattern in Halloween fabrics and gifted it. Always a pleasure to see old patterns with new life.

  2. It seems many many quilt blocks have more than one name. I love the look of spiderweb blocks although the ones I think of are slightly different than your block. Have fun with that colorful fabric pull and making blocks. It will be fun to see this one coming together.

  3. That block sure looks like it has lots of fabric print and solid options... even more than the number of names it has. Don't you love that book? "Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Blocks." I've owned it for about 15 years now and of all my quilt-related books, is the one I wouldn't part with. Even for making modern quilt blocks, it's valuable. You're gonna have fun picking fabrics, and FPPing. I love it!

  5. Love seeing what you're making. I like your colors, and of course am a fan of foundation paper piecing. It's so precise. I'm thrilled to know you're listening to audiobooks now! I read this one myself, and thought it was good, even though it was sad. I continue to post book reviews on my blog, and hope you're finding some good recommendations from me too. My latest one - "Where the Crawdads Sing" - is an absolute "must read!"
