And does it not look fabulous on my kitchen table!
Short and Sweet by Kim Diehl.
I kept the quilting simple...
Cross-hatching in the center and echo quilting around the border.
here is the gratuitous picture of my precious granddaughter on it.
Progress to report on Primitive Pumpkins.
The leaves are not in their permanent spots yet.
I like to sew down the vine and pumpkins before I iron them in place.
They tend to come off when I am stitching.
The hardest part has been finding wool that will contrast with such a dark background.
I seldom buy kits, but it might have been easier to buy one from The Quilter's Station.
I shrank the quilt down to 2" finished squares, but did not change the size of the applique shapes. I wanted them to be more prominent.
Cannot wait to do the leave quilting motif in the borders.
I have the first block of my Pennies from Heaven prepped.
It is a BOM, but I know this will come as no surprise...
I want to change up the colors, but I am having a hard time committing to the bright lime green petals.
Risky business, for sure.
Well, off to another buttonhole stitching marathon.
