I have been following along on Carole’s blog – From My Carolina Home. Her October posts were Autumn Jubilee.
Thanks Carole for inspiring a few “fall” projects.
Though I traveled in October, I started a bunch of fall leaves before I left. This past week I put together a few more, along with some pumpkins. (Note – I now have enough leaves and pumpkins to start a table runner sales program !)
I spent Wed-Friday with my “bee buddies” at a sit & sew camp. I worked on various aspects of the Autumn Jubilee. I built lots of pumpkins, half square triangles for more leaves, and stems for the existing leaves. I might have enough to make 15 table runners at this point. Hey, I wanted variety, and that is what I got!. One table runner ready to gift, and more in the process of construction.
Looking cheery , right?
Then I decided on how to quilt it! And I went great guns…and then spent the last 2 days picking out the crummy quilting!
(Hanging out waiting to dry!)
Leaving just the pumpkins spiral quilted, the rest is “in the ditch”. A quick trip through the washing machine, and now resting on the radiators~
Does this count as a “radiator cozy” ??? Figured it would dry just as well on the radiator as it would tumbling in the clothes dryer.
