Pumpkin Perfection

patchwork pumpkin table topper: QuiltBee
Roberta has had her way with my Pippi Longstocking pumpkin table toppers and I couldn't be more pleased. She has a wonderful eye and does such beautiful work that it is hard to imagine them not coming out perfect.

The pantograph is one that she used on Pumpkin Patch at Midnight and was an excellent choice. All those little pumpkins rolling around in the leaves are just what it needed to give it a little life.

They are now both bound as well and ready to use in time for Halloween - I stayed with the same fabric that I used for the outer border but put it on the bias. I had hoped to have at least one of them ready for Thanksgiving this past weekend but a head cold cut into those plans.

These funky candy corn spideys are the perfect Halloween backing.

They aren't quite square (about 23" x 24") so they could also be hung on the wall if someone was so inclined. Now to see who vies for one at the Silent Auction.....M

They came out looking great! Does your longarmer do those pantographs hand guided or is her machine computerized? The quilting is really fantastic; perfect complement to the design and fabrics you put together. And look at you, all done with your Halloween projects BEFORE Halloween! :-)

A perfect combination of design, color, and quilting pattern.

So cute and a perfect choice of quilting design on your wonderful Halloween quilts - love the orange fabric with those friendly looking spiders! (I guess I am weird - spiders don’t particular bother me thought I think they belong outside:-)
