So excited that the temperatures are not as hot.
Here is another vintage quilt that I bought during the early 90's. I didn't have any time for quilting during those years & I fell in love with it when I saw it. These were the colors that I had in my home at the time. It is completely hand pieced & quilted by a quilting circle of ladies that were selling quilts at a craft show. I think it's called a Dahlia pattern.
This morning was busy because it was yard work morning. After wards, I remembered that I had purchased some mini-pumpkins & decided to bring them out. I've not ever decorated much for fall but, this year I decided to place a touch of fall here & there.
A couple of weeks ago, I bought this velvet pumpkin from a friend who makes these. I would have bought more but, this was the only orange one she had.
I think I'm going to try to make some in other colors using velvet fabric. They actually look quite elegant when grouping several pumpkins together in olive greens, burgundy, & golds. I've been seeing them at certain gift shops & they seem to be easy to make. I'm going to give it a try.
I need to take a break from quilting. Yet, I still have to create something with my hands. I'll let you know how they turn out.
