On last years wish list I was going to make Spring and Autumn themed table runners. It didn't happen so I amended the list to just a autumn wall hanging. Now over the last few weeks I have become addicted to Pinterest and I started looking for autumn table runner patterns...free of course! I collected a lot of pictures and decided that I had to make pumpkins!
The original pattern came from Diary of a quilter which was a Halloween look pumpkin table runner. I ditched the Halloween aspect, shorted the runner to fit my table and started stitching. It just needs binding and the thread ends tidied up. I enjoyed the FMQ on this, as it was so quick and those curved lines give the pumpkins a nice rounded shape.
I made another red and white house. I have recently realise that one has an mistake in it, but at this point I am not unpicking - I used a tiny stitch, because they were foundation pieced on paper, unpicking is next to impossible!
Today I found this winter edition of Quilt Mania magazine while filling in time with a coffee, as the car was being fitted for brand new tyres. So there is hope that I might get a winter wall hanging instead!
This Christmas wall hanging caught my eye.... log cabins and gingerbread men, what a cute combo! I think if I skip the holly leaves it will be perfect for winter. And I have the perfect charm pack to make it with! So this is on my "to do" list now.. I might get around to starting it sooner rather then tackling those red houses!
I have also finished sewing the binding on my Under the Milky Way quilt. Ta dah! Yeah, a finish for March!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
