I got busy right away with hand-piecing some pumpkins, using this tutorial from Patty at Elm Street Quilts. The background is scraps of Moda Bella Ivory, cut when I was trimming embroidery pieces.
I used Patty's size chart for the first two that I made,
and then it was easy to figure out the dimensions for
a smaller pumpkin, and a tall, skinny one.
These pumpkins are so fun to stitch up - I really enjoy the hand-piecing process!
Meanwhile, I've gotten caught up on Almost Amish, part 3, and done a bit of part 4. We made a lot of nine patches, and now they are being sewn into bigger blocks.
I'm using scraps from my solids drawer for this quilt along, sponsored by Lori, at Humble Quilts.
I'm sure I'll be spending time on both of these projects this afternoon! Hope you have some time to stitch this afternoon, too.
Linking up with Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
and Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
Lovely pumpkins. Are you hand piecing Almost Amish, too?
Pretty autumn fabrics, and I love your pumpkins!!
Love, love, love those little pumpkins!
Those pumpkins are so cute! Love the tall skinny one especially.
Those Almost Amish blocks are really pretty.
I thought of you last night while I was cross stitching. For some reason I can cross stitch and embroidery to beat the band, but hand piecing and quilting wear me out - lol!
The pumpkins are so cute!
Teeny pumpkins! Just like the little ones that popping up at the grocery stores. So cute :)
Oh, those pumpkins are SEW adorable!!!
My stitching is the knitting kind today, need to work on a hat and finish a clog so I can felt the pair. I love your pumpkins!!!
nice oranges! what a great color to work with and love a pumpkin shape don't you?
Love your pumpkins, great oranges!
I was going to jump in with Lori's little QAL, but I didn't get going and now I'd be waaay behind. Sigh. I am determined to finish the Moda Blockhead blocks, just two to go, but one has so many pieces! Ugh. Love your little punkins!
I love the different shapes of your pumpkins. They are adorable!
Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
That pumpkin fabric is really nice! Great job.
I love your orange fabrics. The big print works great with all of them. Woohoo! It's a pumpkin-spice-kind-of day here in Ohio.
Those pumpkins are adorable! What a great table runner they would make. Enjoy the hand stitching today.
What fun projects to be working on at this time of year. I need to look up the Almost Amish pattern because I really like what I’m seeing.
Oh those pumpkins are so cute and love all the different sizes together. Can't wait to see what you do with them
What cute pumpkins!
Your Tiny Tuesday collection is looking great. I’m behind on all my September blocks, having traveled the entire month. Finished two yesterday, but still many blocks to go to catch up.
