SWEET PICKINS

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.

Well I always enjoy the view from your creativity :) I did love this new issue of PQP. It's hard to know just where to begin. Love your top and as always it turned out so awesome.

I'm kind of leaning towards the Chocolate Bonbons by Kay Harmon of Sew Graceful Quilting. It's a beauty !

Have a great weekend,
Sue

I'm with you on the beauty of fall, Karen. I do live in a "fall color" area, and it is always inspiring to me.
This is another wonderful project--and I love the things you sent Mary at Quilt Hollow. You are a prolific, and generous quilter.

I love your Sweet Pickins - it's going to be even nicer with the quilting and buttons. Hopefully my copy of Primitive Quilts shouldn't be too far away!

Diane said...

Sweet Pickins is adorable-there is always several projects in that magazine that I want to make.
At work we are getting the fall-and gasp Christmas merch out (I work for Hallmark) I love fall too but am not ready to give up summer quite yet. The fall candle scents I stocked today where heavenly tho'-my kind of fragrance!

Robin said...

Pumpkins are always a favorite with me. Your fall wall hanging turned out really nice. I feel cooler just thinking about fall.

Me and My Stitches said...

Wow...you already have a project done and I haven't received my issue yet! Not sure what is taking so long, but I'm very impatient - I love this magazine!

Beth said...

Wow! It didn't take you long to make that! I was eyeballing that one too, I love that all the autumn stuff is starting to come out. That is also my favorite time of year, even though we don't get it as long here in Southern California as other parts of the country.

Rita said...

That project caught my eye too...I love Fall and pumpkins are my favorite! Yours is so cute.

Carrie P. said...

I have yet to make one thing from those magazines. I just love everything in them. I love the newest issue.

Missie of Hallbrook Designs said...

So cute! I need a new fall quilt. Maybe I will make this one too, but it's hard to decide! Everything in that magazine is darling! Where do you live in Ohio? We moved from Ontario, near Mansfield about 7 years ago. Also lived in Westerville a while. Great fall views!

Lori said...

I liked that one a lot! You did a great job on it!

Doniene said...

Lovely, as usual!! Fall is my favorite time too - the smells, the colors, the temperature! Just everything!!

Wendy said...

It's a wonderful project, I'm still waiting for my magazine.

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

Every time I read your blog, I get the itch to make something really prim. I love your inspiration.

Ruth said...

That is so cute! And I need a pumpkin quilt. I love that magazine - better just subscribe to it as I keep buying them. Your header quilt is gorgeous!!

Cheryl said...

Fall is my favorite season also! And anything with a pumpkin is perfect! Love it.

Allie said...

LOVE IT - this is wonderful!

Purple Pam said...

Another beautiful project. You really got crackin' on this one, didn't you? It is great to be that enthused about a new project. What else are you thinking of making from this magazine?

Nancy said...

Primitive Gatherings is my favorite magazine...
I keep trying to figure out why your blog background stays black when I read it on my iPad. Any ideas?
