Lovely Frankenstein's 31 Days of Halloween: Applique

Pinterest is AMAZING.  There is so much to see there, so many great patterns and ideas for the pinning.  The downside to it though, is sometimes things get pinned without a link to a pattern, or any credit to the designer. 

Such is the case with this quilt. 

I have no idea who designed it, what pattern it is, if any.  All I know is the blocks are made from Moda's Spooktacular line from 3-4 years ago, and probably a layer cake of it.  So, if anyone knows what pattern this is or who designed it, please speak up! 

But the point is, is that is is a very simple quilt.  Just squares and sashing.  But look what happens when the single appliqued spider is added over the top of the finished blocks?  WOW!  The spider and the quilting took this quilt from basic to brilliant! 

So there's some food for thought...for any quilt, not just a Halloween quilt. The addition of a large scale, single applique over the top of a simple quilt really takes to the next level. How cute would it be to add an ornament, or reindeer over a simple square Christmas quilt?
