Thank you to all of you who sent advice and good wishes my way after yesterday’s trauma…(Read more HERE). I was surprised to hear how many of you had also stitched right through your fingers! Fortunately, the needle did not go through my nail–like it did for some of you– I am recovering nicely, (as is my Bernina) thank you! As a result of my injury, I avoided dishes and gardening yesterday and instead worked on my little Spider Web quilt.
I hope you had time to try The Spider Web. (See tutorial HERE) As you can see, I chose the more menacing spider for my web.
I used two colors of thread for this quilt: Blue-gray Aurifil for the web and spider and dark orange Sulky for the background. By stitching the background swirls in orange, they recede to the background and allow the web to move to the foreground.
I think this little quilt will look great on my table with a bowl of candy corn.
Have you bought your Halloween candy yet? It’s on sale in all the stores already…I plan to wait until Halloween. Quilting and chocolate go together way too well!
Next week we’ll be quilting…let’s just say it’s more Halloween for the Tuesday Tutorial next week…
If you have any questions for Open Line Friday, please let me know.
