Punkin Inspired

Had to get DH to hold up quilt for me.
Was a tad to big to pin to my design wall.
I still have a wee bit more quilting to do on it and the binding.
Did the blanket stitch applique after I layered so makes for neat qulting too.
That is a Pat Sloan technique. By the way excited to be doing a work shop with Pat in Oct!

I call this one Punkin Inspired because it was inspired by a quilt I saw Here.
Hers was based on a Blackbird Design you can read about here.
Blackbird Design's quilt would be a wonderful large bed quilt to make for the season!
The booklet/pattern pops up on Ebay and Etsy once in a while.

My finished quilt is not quite same as both of the above ones but they did inspire me to make it so I wanted to give them a shout out!
I drew out all my own pumpkin designs on Heat n Bond Lite. Used the GO! to cut my stars and the small half square triangles for the border.

My quilt is wall size. I plan to hang it on my living room wall behind sofa.
So I hope to have it finished and hung up this week!!!
With our cooler temps here it makes me want to cook soups n chowders and put up all my Fall decor!!!


  1. It is wonderful!! I didn't know that was her technique, I just started doing it that way one day because it was just easier and faster.

  2. Love it! Hmmmmm...would look REALLY good in my living room.

  3. It's beautiful! I like how you saw something and made it your own! Yay for you!

  4. Your quilt looks fabulous Lola..
    Will be great on the wall....

  5. Is the soup ready??????
    what's today's flavor????
    Love that quilt--I am working on a new one--but mine is more Halloween than that one--
    but I guess I should be doing a more regular fall one first!!!!
    Hugs, Di and miss gracie
    Ps tell hub's he did a great job of being a quilt holder!!!!!

  6. Gorgeous, gorgeous!!!! Since I am late reading this, it is probably already up on the wall right??? Hopefully I can do a bit this weekend.
    Fingers crossed.

  7. LOVE it !!! I just love pumpkins and anything pumpkin and Halloween like.
