Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop!

Carla, at Creatin’ in the Sticks put together a fun pumpkin hop just in time for all the lovely fall colors.  It’s been a beautiful fall here in the Pacific Northwest with leaves scurrying across sunlit streets as I drive to work in the morning and occasionally that beautiful shade of fall blue sky with white clouds scudding quickly accross that just makes fall one of the most beautiful times of the year.  So, I’ve been working hard on my UFO’s and I had a little pumpkin just waiting to be a finished.  I was inspired by Bonnie Hunter’s string pumpkins when I was watching her Quilt Cam.  I thought about doing an entire quilt of pumpkins but realized that there will have to be a LOT more orange in my stash before I can attempt it.  No, seriously, I came up with about three orange strips in my 2″ strip bin…there may be serious shopping ahead!

So, I made a little pumpkin pillow to go with my recently finished “BOO!” top!


And, speaking of shopping…this quilter is going to…wait for it…Houston!  For the Quilt Festival!  To meet up with a bunch of the Just Wanna Quilt Quilting Army!  OK, I am officially excited!  (Except when I’m officially nervous! lol) There will be many, many photos coming so keep watching.  In the meantime, go and visit the super talented group of quilters that have fun pumpkin projects to share!

Happy quilting!
