I machine zig zagged the pumpkins and stems. When using the gorgeous Island Batiks for my appliques I do not use a fusible as they don't ravel. Elmer's Glue is my friend, I just run a thin line next to the edge on the wrong side of the fabric and iron to heat set it. Then applique down. Easy peasy and keeps my piece softer.
But I didn't stop at just the skinny topper, our front door needed a seasonal quilt too. I had made a patriotic one for summer and my door was looking naked now. So I had to whip up something so why not a matching pumpkin door quilt. There are 2 shapes of pumpkins, the cabinet topper got the taller and the door the squatty one.
Since we have a steel door I hang these with little magnets that I slip into little pockets on the back of the quilt.
A super fun month of creating something with Island Batik fabrics.
Linking with a few of the linky parties on the left side bar. Grabbing a cup of coffee and checking them out!
