Bloggers quilt festival - double spiderweb

I made this quilt over four or five months this year and am entering it in the scrappy quilt section of Amy's quilt festival. I have been buying other peoples scraps for earlier quilts but then saw a quilt with pieced kites some where in blog land.

It obsessed me. I took a month or so deciding on the pattern construction and then cut multiple strips from every fabric I had. They were all left hanging on coat hangers so I could decide what to put where. The construction took quite a while, particularly the pieced kites and I couldn't have finished the layout without a design board.

I have shown this quilt before but never took a finished picture. I bound it a couple of months ago and was using it even before I finished the quilting! Here it is, the double spiderweb.

I quilted each web with a web, but quilted each kite with a different quilting design.
The colours of the flannelette backing works well with the front.
Here it is, in it's rightful place. Some might think this is too busy, but I love it. So does my dog?
 I'm also entering Amy's competition to win a Baby Lock Melody, although I don't think it can be shipped to Australia :}  I'd love to have a good machine to be set up just for piecing, and leave my Janome for FMQ.
