Quilting the Spiderweb Quilt

Image
The quilting is complete on the hexagon quilt! I did more research on this pattern and found that it is a "Spiderweb" block. The fabrics are 1930s for the most part. I can't date the solid blue star point fabric and a few of the other fabrics in the quilt, but for the most part they are 1930s.

I decided on an egg and dart quilting design for the spider webs with a flower in the center - then a continuous curve design for the star points. My main goal was to find a design that emphasized the spiderweb design and that the star point design be symmetrical. A directional design in the star points would have caused a lot of extra work to get them to look right since they are connecting 3 different spiderweb blocks together.
Here is a video of the quilting:
