The inspiration for this pattern is the intricate, shimmering spider webs spun by the Orb-Weaver spiders during the summer months. In the early morning hours, these iridescent filaments, hung from garden plants and tall grasses, catch the light and any dew that’s fallen overnight. The pattern features diamond-shaped patterns in the center panel, with wide Estonian-inspired leaf-themed lace borders at each end.
