Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Saturday, October 27, 2018

October in my sewing room - DrEAMi's!

I've been crushing on orange this month!

It started with some orange strings and  a crumb block which turned into these pumpkins.


I finished the crumb block into this mini to decorate my front entry way.


The three string blocks became a little tablerunner that I gifted to a friend for her birthday.

I found a cute ceramic pumpkin to go with it!

And then I reversed the colors to make these fun pumpkins from Carole's Autumn Jubilee QAL.


I'm still trying to use up this dark orange leftover from a quilt I made long before I started blogging!


The pumpkins and a white star for the center became a tablerunner for my dining room table.  The (real) white pumpkin I found was the inspiration for this color combination!  This measures about 12.5 x 36.



Another good use of the stripe-y Halloween fabric I found at Joann's, too.


Okay, I think I'm done with orange...  Time to pull out the Christmas scraps!  :)

those are cute displays for Halloween - I didn't really get anything done for this year what with being gone but when I went grocery shopping yesterday I got some little pumpkins and gourds for a table decoration

That orange blender is a classic! It proves that some fabrics just never go out of style. I really like your off white pumpkins. They go so well with the real one you found :)

I thought I loved the orange pumpkins...then I saw the white ones! Even better in my opinion! What a super fun runner and perfectly staged on your table!

I love orange, so this is a great post - haha! I suppose it's time to make the shift to more Christmas colors, huh?
