Every year on our quilt retreat, a small group of us make a “mini-quilt” in addition to the Big Project being taught at the retreat. This year, our theme was pumpkins. It started with some strips of orange fabric and a Halloween cat fabric for backing.
We all just free-formed our quilts, using the log cabin (my favorite) as the basic pattern.
After I finished my pumpkins, I auditioned them on several backgrounds…
My sister assembled her pumpkins in a strip…
I went with a dark background and an informal two-by-two arrangement.
And guess what??? I machine quilted the mini quilts for my two sisters and they stitched my binding!!! Woo-hoo!
I have more orange fabric…and there is still 29 more days until Halloween…I’m going to stitch a whole pumpkin patch! Won’t you join me?
