Pumpkin Runner

28 08 2011

I’ve finished the final class sample for this calendar year.  The pattern for this runner is the Pumpkin Runner from Bloomin’ Minds.  I didn’t change anything from the pattern directions.  I’ll be using this project to introduce people to fused applique and the machine blanket stitch.  If any of you are local and interested, the class is scheduled for October 13 at 1pm or 6pm. A minimum of 4 students per session need to sign up by October 10 to ensure the class proceeds as scheduled.

I bought the fabric for the background and the narrow border.  Everything else came from my stash (which bothers customers when they can’t match everything exactly — what happened to changing things up by pick your own fabrics?).

I quilted a poem I found while search the web in the outside border — I still need to work on getting the rest of the chalk marks out!  I found the poem here.  It says, “When you see me in the fields, my orange glowing in the sun, it’s time to say goodbye to Summer and hello to Autumn Fun!”  I frequently find my self putting poems or song lyrics in borders that are around 2 inches wide on my own quilts.  Not sure why.
