I found this great little tutorial for the cutest cloth pumpkins ever. Check them out.
You can find the tutorial here. The littlest pumpkins would make great place markers for a nice fall dinner (i.e. Thanksgiving). Just lean paper name tags against the stems--ADORABLE!
I had the opportunity to go to a quilt show put on by the Raintree Quilt Guild this past weekend. Since I'm in a fall kind of mood, I'll show you the fall quilts first. These first three quilts are by Karen Hampton. They are all for sale. Check out her website here.
Since I'm on a "fall kick"...today was SO beautiful that my husband and I felt like we just HAD to get outside. We decided to make a trip to the Huber Family Farm in southern Indiana. Here is a pic of my husband with lots of big, beautiful pumpkins. I LOVE the orange of those pumpkins!
Back to the quilt show...this next quilt was meticulously pieced by Karen Long Miller and BEAUTIFULLY machine quilted by Rita English. I think if you click the picture you can get a close up look at the quilt.
I have a soft spot in my heart for antique quilts. This quilt is a Boston Commons and was HAND pieced and HAND quilted by Minnie Boekenhoff; it was made in the 1930s. The granddaughter, Linda Bolen, (who owns the quilt) was told by her mother that this was a quilt kit. There is A LOT of quilting on this quilt. It was interesting to see the edge finishing. The edges are turned under and whip stitched shut with TINY little stitches.
