Pumpkins done!!

I put in a long day today to get this quilt finished and it was worth it! I just couldn't stop quilting...

I traced the flower and leaf as templates, and did some outline quilting up in the blocks with contrasting threads.
A simple swirl meander sets off the pumpkins in the blocks. The inner border has a continuous leaf design.

This shows the backing

Here are the flower and leaf I used for the templates.

I think it looks really nice!

Tim finished his quilting and then spent some time in the yard with his plants and grass. He actually has a sunburn on his face! Forgot to wear his hat.

A monster of an Irish chain for a Florida customer.

He used variegated thread and a nice feathery pantograph.

A peek at the back.

Now, I am in my easy chair with my feet up, ready to hand sew the binding down on the quilt I did yesterday. 
Life is good!


  1. Thanks for sharing the close ups of your quilting - it is amazing how much it compliments the patchwork. Wonderful patterns and clever ideas!

    1. Thanks, Robyn! I love what I do for a living. I wish I was better at it, but I keep trying.
