It's My Day For The Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop

Just a note: I have a double trouble day of two projects happening...Pick A Pumpkin blog hop
and Riley Blake Design's Dragon blog tour. You can find the Dragons HERE.

Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks came up with the perfect idea for a fall blog hop...Pick A Pumpkin! 
All we had to do was have a pumpkin somewhere on our project.
Thank you, sweet Carla, for gathering us together to sew and share!

I started this quilt a few years ago from a laser cut kit I purchased at Quilted Works.
I love all the little applique details, but one thing after another got in the way and suddenly
all those little details overwhelmed me. It became a (gasp) UFO!
Fast forward to a quilt retreat this summer with friends and out came the quilt. 
It has pumpkins (which meets the requirements) and ta-da...it's done!

Here it is at the golf course...

...the museum...

...and in front of an old house in Hurricane, Utah.

I love our little outings and my "crew" is the best at holding up or positioning the quilt!

An acorn house

A pilgrims house with pumpkins

A barn with a quilt and scarecrow

A festive house with another pumpkin...love that owl!

The quilting is gorgeous and was done by Quilted Works.
I usually let them pick the design and threads...I've never been disappointed!

The back of this quilt has minky on it and will be a Christmas gift for someone special.

There's lots of pumpkin inspiration happening this week...don't miss out on any of them!

Dragons by Ben Byrd for Riley Blake Designs is sweet and the colors are so bright.
I love those dragon scales! Some of the fabrics I used...

The Castle

Two baby dragons

Look how cute this printed fabric is! I put a section of it on the back of the quilt.
There's so much detail in the dragons and the knights...love it!

Feeling A Bit Fruity With Thermoweb Designers

Actually, I usually feel a bit fruity everyday, but today even more so. 
ThermOWeb had four designers (me included) design fruit blocks. 
Then, we were challenged with creating a  project using those blocks. 
This is what I came up with...

Feeling A Bit Fruity
45" x 45"

My applique blocks were made using Therm O Web EZ Print Lite Sheets
which are so easy using an inkjet printer. Print, iron, cut out, press...no tracing!
I love the way the protective back peels off so easily...no need to score the paper with a pin.

Fruit blocks for this table topper can be found on ThermOWeb’s blog:

My apple block - HERE
Amy C's lemons - HERE
Carla H's watermelon - HERE
Amy W's cherries - HERE

You can find this pattern on the ThermOWeb blog or at my Craftsy store.
