The quilter and the spider have a long history together. As the spider works her threads through time, she represents an industrious, creative creature weaving webs to catch things like luck, wealth, and good fortune. Many cultures hold the spider in esteem, looking to her for wisdom and well being. Not unlike a quilter.
During the era of Crazy Quilting spiders and their webs were often sewn into quilts. This tradition continues today with quilting designs of webs stitched into quilts.
