Eerie Nights Blog Hop!


A big thanks to Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy to taking over this hop while Marian from Seams To Be Sew moves back to the USA! I appreciate what both of you do to bring us all these fun hops!

Here's who is hopping today:
Elizabeth Coughlin Designs (you're here)
Jane’s Quilting
Just Let Me Quilt
Batts In The Attic

For my project, I decided to do something small and eerie. What I came up with is this Spider Rug Mug:
It combines paper piecing and embroidery and comes together fairly quickly.

The block side is a wonky log cabin pattern:
And the embroidery side is sewn in a simple back stitch, with an appliqued WoolFelt body for the spider:

Here's the FREE pattern for you all to download and make.

  15. Oops .... commented ont he wrong post! Anyhow, I said that I love your spider and asked if you knew that the Victorians considered spiders to be lucky. That's why so many of them added spiders on their crazy quilts. (lynnstck[at]yahoo.com)

  49. It's interesting that when I see a stitched spider web next to a log cabin, I finally see the connection between the two blocks traditional blocks (the pieced spider web block and the log cabin block). Until I saw your stitchery, I didn't really think of the log cabin in that way. I hope log cabin blocks don't seem creepy to me from now on. ;)
