Autumn's Harvest Pumpkin


Will you look at this? A finish; a quilt finish at that! This is about 24"x 36" and makes a perfect little table topper. It is a pattern from Crab-apple Hill Studio. Can you believe that it is totally hand quilted. Astounding!

It's been a busy week-end at La Casa del Quilter. I got this little quilt done and I finished up the Four Season's Quilt Swap round 5 quilt. No sneak peak. I'm going to mail it out after Valentines Day so you will just have to wait to see it. I also got the third QOV top almost together. Well, it is a D9P so all I have to do is sew the blocks back together. Tucked in here and there have been a few knitted stitches on the socks on the needles. They are nothing spectaclar, just some tube socks. Can't wait to finish these. I did a seed stitch rib just to keep from getting as bored as I did doing the last pair of tube socks.

I realize that I need to stop creating tops and do some quilting on them. I have 9 items that need to be quilted. Nine! That's ok, I need the practice.

  7. Did you use a template for the pumpkin or was it drawn/ stitched freehand?

    Although my first fiber craft was cross-stitch, I wish I could embroider. One more thing to learn. ~ksp

  9. Love this pumpkin table topper. I especially like that you hand quilted it. I love my autumn table topper because of the hand quilting, makes for an entirely different look from the machine work - not that there's anything wrong with that, lol.

    Nine tops, huh, I agree, it's time to quilt.
