I have a finish to share with you today. As many of you know making things for craft shows always makes me work 2-3 seasons ahead. Sometimes that is hard to do and sometimes not. I am in the fall thinking season today with my projects.
The quilting was inspired by a design from Christina Camelli's book.
This is my work in progress. I cut it out yesterday and pieced it last night. The pattern calls for a strip of applique leaves between the pumpkins but I am not going to do that for this one. I feel the background fabric is a bit too busy for this. So it is now in the quilting pile :-)
Here is the FO, no that is not a misprint! FO= found object!! Getting ready to go camping last weekend meant restocking the camper. In the process I found these 2 candlemats stuffed in the back of one of the cabinets! And I thought I had done a good job cleaning the camper last fall, LOL But I could have probably sold them if they were out at the sales last fall. Oh well I'll just be that much ahead for this fall, hehe. I remember working on them while camping last summer. The funny thing is I remember also that I thought I should have had more done when the shows started!
Edited to add this little guy... He was curled up between the garden fence and my Japanese Iris. DH came walking right by him and then came to get me to see him. I had the zoom on, so I didn't really get this close to him. It is common that we see the wee little ones each spring. Last night twin fawns and mommy came strolling through the yard.
Linking with other inspiring quilters at a few of the linky parties on my left side bar.
Have a great rest of the week.
