Overrun with spiders

Well, not exactly.

Just one very cute little spider I added to my Halloween table runner. 

First, I quilted the table runner with spider webs!  This photo is of the back of the quilt so you can see the web quilting.

Then, the spider!  (Stay away from the Hershey's bar!)

If you look carefully at the fabric, you'll see some cute 6 legged spiders with smiling eyes.  I decide to make mine with 6 legs as well.  (Mine doesn't have eyes yet!)

I wanted the body to have, well some body, so I cut a circle of fabric and a circle of batting.  The batting is slightly smaller than the fabric.

Then I pinned the batting where I wanted the spider to be and used the zigzag stitch on my machine for his legs.  I tried different combinations of setting to get the look I wanted.

I then pinned on the body and zigged

and zagged until he was done.

The final table runner is done and ready to go!

Don't forget to comment on my giveaway post celebrating my first year of blogging.

Happy Stitching!


  1. What a great idea to do the spider web quilting... and then add a spider! I'm gonna have to remember this next year!

  2. How cute! Great idea I'm tucking away for next year. :)

  3. I am catching up on some blogs I missed while on vacation and I just saw this - I love how you quilted that table runner! It's so great!
