Summer Sewing

With summer in full swing, there hasn't been much time for sewing (or blogging) lately.  Knowing that, I decided to go ahead and start a little project anyway.  It was super quick (a few hours), and turned out rather cute, I think.  

A close-up of the main fabric and the pattern used:

Welcome Great Pumpkin by Quilting Treasures
Love Villa Rosa patterns

Given that the pattern had a retro feel, and that the "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" holiday special was first shown in 1966, they seemed to go together nicely.  I think I'll back it with a black and white chevron, and machine-quilt it with vertical squiggly lines (my favorite quick quilting technique) using gray thread.  Not sure what to bind it with - maybe black?  The top finished at 40" x 51". 

I hope summer is going well where you are.  It's always a really busy (and hot!) season around here.  Thank goodness we've had overcast days, which helps keep the 110's at bay.
