Pumpkins anyone?

 

What better time to work on a fall themed quilt than on a cold

winter’s day?

Shirley made this next quilt as a BOM. Buggy Barn is the

designer of this pattern “Farm Fresh.”

How can  you not love what designs  they create?

I think that the pumpkins are my most favorite part of this

quilt. The quilting lines really make the pumpkins come to

life.

I love the Canadian flags in the flower pot too. I am unsure

if Shirley designed these herself or if they came with the

pattern.

The flowers in this pot are so cute too. I love the whole thing and

may just have to make one for myself.

Here is what  the watering can and stool look like. It was alot

of fun trying to come up with whimsical designs for each

element of the quilt. Shirley also wanted the background to

be filled with meandering or stippling.

In the border area, I stitched in several more sunflowers. It

really does add a nice touch and gives the viewer something

else to look at. I used a polyester thread for the top and

backing.

Here is the stem of the sunflowers in the border.  The thread color

was matched to whatever color was on the top.

The back looks like an entirely different quilt. The backing

is a dark blue batik and the thread shows up beautifully.

Pumpkins anyone?

The watering can, the stool and another vase of flowers.

What a great job Shirley did making this quilt.
