Eensy Weensy Spider
Eensy Weensy Spider

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • easy quilting, basic sewing, applique, simple embroidery

Pattern Description:

This little quilt depicts the Eensy-Weensy (or Itsy-Bitsy) spider from the nursery rhyme. The web is quilted in after making the "spokes" with a running stitch of metallic thread. The words to the nursery rhyme are embroidered along the border along with vines and leaves. This is basically the same pattern as the Halloweensy Spider, but with variations in the borders. The easy applique method can be seen in a tutorial on my blog, Buzzing and Bumbling, although any method, including machine applqiue, can be used. This is a pretty quilt for a nursery or girl's room!
