Barely visible in this photo, there is a fine gossamer spider web in the center.

This is my own creation, but very easy to duplicate.  You're welcome to use your computer monitor as a make shift light box.  Trace the pumpkins and leaves using a sheet of copy paper.  Then enlarge on your printer.  The finished size of the topper is 40"x 20".  Cut a rectangle 32 1/2"x 12 1/2" for the center of the runner.  For the inner border strips, cut 2 @ 33" x1 1/2" and 2 @ 15" x 1 1/2".  For the outer border, cut 2 strips @ 35"x 2 3/4" and 2 strips @ 21"x 2 3/4".  Cut a rectangle 40 1/2"x 20 1/2" for the backing (measure the quilt top to be sure).  Note: I cut the strips a little longer and then measure and trim to square up after adding each piece.  The binding finishes out at 1/2".  I hope I have calculated this correctly.  Please measure and cut as you go.

Linda - I can see the spider web just fine!  Your leaves are beautiful - like they just fell off the tree!

Thank you for all the nice comments.  I've found a new love(s)...applique and smaller quilts.  It is such fun and more immediately rewarding.  I've been a dormant artist these past many years so I'm going to start "painting" on my fabrics.  I did some on this project, like the veins on the leaves.  After I stitched them I decided the contrast didn't show up enough so I went over them with an indelible pen.  Looks much better.
