It is fall, Eva needed a new placemat, so here we are. I made it with a charm pack of Hello Fall (by Sandy Gervais for Moda) in no time flat. I pretty much made it up as I went along. Cut 2 1/2 inch squares to sew on the corners of four charm squares to make a pumpkin shape, make a little stem and surround the pumpkin shape with 2 1/2 inch by 5 inch strips and a few 2 1/2 inch squares. You could make it bigger and have a table runner, easlly.
I have been watching Leah Day videos on You Tube and have been getting lots of great instruction on stipple quilting. You should check it out. I still need more practice though. My stippling isn't all nice and even like Leah's is, so I didn't want to risk ruining this little place mat with my bad efforts. I just did the usual stitch in the ditch thing.
Are you now totally in the mood for fall decorating? Me too!
