The pattern gives directions for three sizes, small (20x23"), medium (30x35") and large (40x47"). The large is big enough to make into a tree skirt, and it gives the directions on how to do that. The size I made for my Halloween table topper is the medium.
I wanted to quilt it with some type of Halloween or fall quilting embroidery design on my Bernina 830, and found the perfect design in my collection. The one I used was from Designs Sew Fine from Quilt Collection 1. There are three sizes of the spider web, and I used the largest, which fit nicely into the Jumbo hoop. I used a metallic thread that was a black and silver twist. I was very happy with the results. The picture above is a closeup of the stitchout of the design. With the precise embroidery positioning of the Bernina 830, I was able to get my designs exactly where I wanted them.
Below is the finished topper, binding and all. This was a great, quick project, and only took a few hours to complete from beginning to end.
I really look forward to attending Groovy Girls Club meetings at Shiisa Quilts in Bloomington, Indiana. I always come away with great ideas and inspiration. The projects are small enough and don't require big chunks of time, which is perfect for me.
