Glamour Spider (Colour of the Month - Black)


Glamour Spider

Size:  13.75" x 12.75"

This little wallhanging is my own design.  It was inspired by the Spider Pendant which I purchased at Michael's.  The black fabric which I used for the spiderweb was the Colour of the Month fabric for October at Serge & Sew (Timeless Treasures, Patt# HUE-C1717). It's hard to see in the photos but it almost looks like it has dew drops on it.  The background fabric is also from Serge & Sew but from 2009, yes I said 2009!  It is Batty Halloween by South Sea Imports and it was in my stash.


I drew the spiderweb (freehand & with a ruler) onto some Lite Steam-A-Seam 2, fused it onto the back of the black fabric, then cut it out and fused it onto my background.  After layering my batting and backing, I then appliqu├ęd the edges of the spiderweb - quilting at the same time!


On the back I used a black cotton print with a white spiderweb from my stash - Eye of Newt by Maxa Nobie for Moda - sorry, I don't know any other details about it - it was in my stash too.  The binding is black Kona Cotton from Robert Kaufman, my go-to black.


And just one more...


Happy Quilting!
