Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me today for the Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop sponsored by Carla Henton from Creatin in the Sticks.

Button for November smaller

This is my first time participating in a blog hop. I’ve been sewing for more than 50 years but started my quilting journey in 2010. The hop started on Monday and all of the projects I’ve seen have been amazing!
I absolutely adore all things fall, it is my favorite time of the year! I had several pumpkin related projects on my to do list so I was super excited when I saw Carla’s post about the  Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop – the only requirement was to include a pumpkin somewhere in our project. – YAY!! 🙂
Before I introduce you to my hop project I’d like to share a few other pumpkin goodies  I’ve made.

I participated in Carole’s From My Carolina Home  2018 Autumn Jubliee. I’ve got the quilt top finished….

My favorite quilt block is the log cabin block so for the blog hop I made both a pumpkin potholder (8 x 9 inches) and a mug rug ( 7 x 9 inches) — items I use daily :). Potholder has a pocket in the back.
I started with a 6 inch log cabin block, rounded the corners with 1.5 inch squares. Added stem, pieced leaf and finally borders. I enjoy sketching out designs, figuring the math and using fabric to bring the design to life — this time my plan worked 🙂
