A Friday finish……….

A satisfying way to end the week! This little project began (in my head!) last Wednesday as the perfect gift for an upcoming special day. The idea was inspired by a cute little quilt in this magazine: IMG_1829 Are you familiar with it? I am but have bypassed it cuz it has more wool projects than fabric and I really don’t need any more wool stash. Anyhow, this piece was the idea “seed” IMG_1830. These pumpkins are so attractive! So, for a table topper, I took just 2 with a blank center square, making room for a centerpiece spot in the center of the table.IMG_1831 Almost forgot to ‘flip’ the pumpkin on the opposite end! IMG_1832 IMG_1833 IMG_1834 Finished, it measures 14”x 38”…perfect. Simple grid and echo stitching worked well for the background….really brought it alive! I double batted the areas under the pumpkins for additional ‘poof’. Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly batting with wool for the areas that got the 2nd layer. Quilted with Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt. The backingIMG_1837. The finish:  IMG_1842 (3) IMG_1859 (3) Have an awesome weekend! I think there’s some more (secret) stitching in my future……….

    Oh that is gorgeous! I love the green vine curls. I don’t know about you but I am sure missing our long arm meetings.

      Thank you. As soon as I finish with the next quilt I’m hoping to make one for me……..maybe. Most of the fabrics I used are totally used up with that finish. Hugs……………

    This is darling! I love how you ‘poofed’ the pumpkins more. It will certainly help the special day be even more special!
