Some of you might remember I took the leap and started working on Bonnie Hunter’s quilt Pumpkin Patch that was featured in Quiltmaker magazine.
It’s been rainy here so I haven’t been able to get out and walk Ruby at night and I haven’t been able to do any outside work. That has left me with extra time in the evening to sew. I’ve been taking advantage of that time!
The center is together but UGH. I have two blocks with the same background touching!!!
So do I rip it out….YES!
All better. Normally I’d probably have left it but this quilt is small and the blocks were on the edge so it was an easy fix.
Here’s the center laying out of the floor.
The coloring on the photo isn’t the best as the browns are actually “warmer”.
There is a pieced border….in the original pattern the border is green and the background color. Instead I am using random fall colors. I have more to sew.
It’s hard to accomplish much if this guy is around….
Where did Carver go???
I have the first border pinned down and ready to sew. I already have the flying geese that are the outer border sewn. I don’t think it’s going to be too long before this becomes a finished top. I did decide that when I finish it, I am going to quilt it right away. I’d like to enjoy it while fall is still here.
