Hand Embroidered Spider Webs

My Halloween / Spider Web quilt is finished. I am so happy with it. And I really can't believe it is done.

After finishing the quilt top with orange stash, black and off white. I hand embroidered spider webs and little spiders on it. I like spiders. ( any bug really). But spiders say "Halloween".

My quilt top has been setting around waiting to be quilted since last September. I wanted it to be done by Halloween last year. Well, that didn't happen. With school and the itch to just stitch by hand I figured I better have some one quilt it for me or it would never get done.

I sent it off to Rebekah Richardson to have it quilted the easiest and cheapest way.

For the black fabric, I picked one with circles so it looked like bubbles coming out of a witches cauldron pot.

My label, not finished yet, but it is there.

I will be ready for Halloween 2012. :o) One more quilt from my UFO's done! I am so happy!

Amy, I LOVE your quilt!!! It is beautiful and the spiders and webs make it just perfect! You should be very proud! Now, if I didn't like summer, I'd be wishing for a quick fall!
