I think I stopped working on it because once I had the final borders on I realized I forgot two of the check borders in the middle! So, this one will get frogged today and after I make some more of the four patches we'll see how it goes together again. I think a pumpkin or two will end up getting appliqued in the middle section..... or Maybe a BOO? Thoughts? I made the parts using some stencils that came with some construction paper for Halloween last year. Kids coloring books are also a great way to find patterns for applique or quilting designs.
The original three pumpkins will become a tiny little runner for the table.... although the thoughts are spinning and I may have another idea for that one.
Head on over to SoScrappy and see what other orange projects are being worked on this weekend.
As for us - I have lived here for a year and a half and have not made it to the Market of Marion flea market that is just 20 minutes from my house. We are heading there today with the kids. Wish me luck! At least I am feeling much better today than the last few ... I picked a good time to get sick while I had grandparents here to watch and care for the kids for me. A big thanks to my Mom and Dad for taking care of them for me.
