What Color Binding?

Hi Everyone!

Well, Autumn is in full swing here in New England and it truly is just the most beautiful time of year! 

I worked on this Autumn quilted wall-hanging this week.

This is the first time that I have quilted applique... I wasn't sure I liked it at first but have decided that I do!

I blanket stitched the applique first and then used the free motion quilt 'stipple' pattern (Love that because there is no wrong way to do it!)

If you look closely at the back of the wall-hanging, you will notice my brown thread coming through... that is the MANY, MANY areas where my thread broke while I was quilting it. What a pain is the butt! I finally perfected my tension settings to prevent that.

I just need to bind it and add the sleeve for hanging. 



Thanks for any ideas and have a great weekend!

Going Pumpkin Crazy!

Hi Everyone,

Well, I have been working on some more items to put in the consignment shop... I am just having so much fun making things for this time of year!

I am going pumpkin crazy! LOL 

I still need to stain these and the one with 3 pumpkins will go in a frame and the others will be pillows.

I also bought a new quilt pattern book and have started on my lap quilt... can't wait to see how it comes out!

Have a great week, everyone!
