Primitive Pumpkins is quilted!
Remember when I said I looked forward to doing the borders?
this is how I did them.
I cut templates of oak leaves from freezer paper,
ironed them at 4" intervals in the border
and then quilted,
using them as guides.
After the outline of the leaves were quilted,
I turned the quilt over and did all the fill work from the back.
I did the same thing in the body of the quilt,
using the 3 pumpkins as my theme.
After I was done,
I showed it to my hubby, who exclaimed,
"A work of art! You should hang it up backwards and forget all that piecing in the future!"
After much deliberation,
I have gone a new direction with my Pennies From Heaven.
Here are the first two blocks.
I changed the background to a soft brown print and
went from lime green to a blue green wool called Meadow,
by Weeks Dye Works.
I am so pleased with the changes I made that I have almost all the stitching done.
That is, except the embroidery....
not my best skill.
Cannot wait to add some of my vibrant aqua wool to the mix!
