Is done!! And I love it. I wimped out on putting a leaf on, I just didn’t want to deal with the appliqué, so it got canned. But so far I am good with it, if I feel the need to have a leaf I can always add it later. These shots are pre washing, didn’t have time to give it a dunk so it’s pretty pristine.
I just decided a grid quilting pattern would work best, so I just went with it. I had only planned to do the grid within the pieced border, but it was just easier to go to the edge. In the pumpkins I did some FMQ to create sections, for a little bit of detail. I stitched in the ditch around the pumpkins, stems, and border to give more detail.
Now, the back, I adore the orange fabric I used for the back, I have tons of it for the backing of Orange you Green quilt, whenever it gets quilting! I am planning to farm it out to have an Orange Peel design quilted on it.
So, the back,
So it’s done, and attention turns to finishing the shawl. I am on the road home today to prepare for the wedding tomorrow. 1 rehearsal dinner tonight with the family and 2 weddings tomorrow. The girls and I to my niece’s wedding and Hubster to his niece’s wedding. Same time, different venues. Oh well. BioGirl is in my niece’s wedding, so of course I want to be there.
Here’s to Friday, a day to share finishes, or not finishes!
