The Quilter and the Spider


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.

I do wish people that design spiders put there legs in the right place! Just a little thing I look at and some designers have them wrong. All legs come from the thorax and there are 8 legs. Just a bit of information that I look at all the time don’t ask me why.
