The day the latest fall issue of "Primitive Quilts and Projects" arrived in my mail box, I started piecing the background for "Sweet Pickins". The pattern is by Peg Springstead of Quilted Crow. I finished the top yesterday evening. The piece is 28" x 28". A nice wall size.
After it is quilted, I will add buttons as the pattern shows. One in the center of each Churn Dash block and one where the leaves and stem meet on the pumpkin.
Fall is my favorite season of the year. We don't live in the part of the USA that gets to experience the colors of fall but we used to live in Ohio and know well how beautiful the foliage can be. There are several projects in this fall issue of the magazine that interest me. Included is a log cabin quilt with a sunflower border, a smaller size pumpkin quilt, and pumpkin coasters.
I am working on a third Simple Sack similar to what I showed in my last post. This one has a fall theme. Fall is still a ways off but I am in the mood to make things for that season. Hope you enjoyed the view today.
