I'm proud to report that I finished two small pieces yesterday. This is the second one.
It is a Paper Panache mystery block that I pieced a year ago. Have I told you that I cheat? I print out the mystery patterns and color them in with crayons or colored pencils. Then I fit the pieces together to reveal the mystery! Sometimes, I actually pull fabrics and piece up the block. Most of the time, I staple the pieces together and file them for later. I'm glad I actually pieced this one!
For this pumpkin, I chose the Kaffe fabric for the border first and pulled the other fabrics to coordinate. I'm really enjoying the teal vine and chartreuse leaves. The gray in the background is a linen-like blend, but the binding is Kona medium gray. (It was already out!)
I quilted it up quickly with swirly vines in the background and parallel straight lines in the border. I left the pumpkin and leaves unquilted so they pop. I'm addicted to completely machine stitched binding!
