Community Quilt 11

This one was fun! I call it ‘bug jar’. Each jar has a fabric with some sort of bug on it — mosquitoes, spiders, butterflies, flies, even turtles! (yeah, I know, not a bug…), so I suspect this quilt was made for a kid.

I quilted hundreds of spider webs all over the quilt in keeping with the theme, and, to add a surprise, I used some Superior NiteLite thread to stitch two BIG spider webs over the top of all the others — at night with the lights off, these webs should glow in the dark! 😉

Thread used:

  • Top: Isacord 40 wt, colour ‘Coral’ 1532
  • Bobbin: Deco-Bob 80wt, grey, colour DB 103.
