What happens when one is kicked out of their living room and banished to upstairs in her sewing room??? Well, one has fun with pumpkins! Fabric ones that is. Jos is working from home today and has had conference calls one after another. So Dagi and I had to go upstairs for most of the day.
I decided just before lunch to grab my scrap box and make a small table top quilt with them. I have lots of scrumptious autumn homespuns left from a large quilt I made. They are just small scraps but worked just perfectly to make this little quilt.
It measures 9 inches by 11 inches. I cut out the pieces for the green pumpkin freehand with a green tweed fabric and appliqued them onto a piece of light beige brushed cotten. I then frayed the sides and sewed it with a large stitch to the patchwork.
The seams were zigzagged to quilt them. I had fun putting this together and it only took a couple of hours. I am pleased with it.
Of course, Dagi has been helping me all afternoon so he had to make sure I had it layed out well for the photos too. *grins*
Two quilt finishes in one week...woohoo!
Have a creatively inspired weekend!
