Humour me…the last stitch was put into ‘Midnight Harvest’ last night…yes the binding is on…and I am celebrating…REALLY CELBRATING!!
Yes, I am dancing around this quilt doing a little Fall Rain dance… in my housecoat I might add (do you have a visual here…I know…it ain’t pretty but you’re stuck with it!!)…:)
But enough dancing!! Get that quilt up off the floor and onto a table…where it clearly belongs!
It’s only September first…which means this quilt is done in plenty of time for Fall! Heck the REAL pumpkins are still green and out in the fields!! Happy dancing all around!
I’m not going to kid you, this quilt was a ton of work and took forever to make! At times I didn’t even like it…there I have said it out loud and actually put it down on ‘paper’. Too dark, too orange, too many pumpkins, too busy…just too darn much work!!..The list went on…
But now that it’s finished…when I stand back and look…REALLY LOOK…I LOVE IT!!
I love those wee small pieced stars (I have always loved those). I love the dark colours…even the orange!!.. and I love each and every pumpkin! And now I love, love, love the big stitched stars…who knew?! They were a total fluke!
Sometimes quilting is like that…you fly by the seat of your pants and things just fall into place. This is how this quilt went…
What I should have done was waited for daylight before taking these pictures…I get up way too early!!
Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
