Great Pumpkin Quilt Finish

(Warning - lots of orange in this post)  Happy October!  Well, what's left of it.  I have a quilt finish to share today - yay!  It's a small lap size - 40" x 50" - perfect for my grandkiddos. 

(Sorry about the shady pic)
It's made with a Peanuts Halloween print which was too cute to cut up.  You can read more about the fabric and pattern here.  I backed it with a Riley Blake medium chevron in black and white, and machine-bound it in a solid black. 

I free-motion quilted the large open areas with my favorite wavy lines in orange thread, and echo-quilted in the black squares with black. 

Snickers approves.  

I also made this little potholder (or maybe snack mat?), while at our guild retreat last month.  I just took an orphan block, sandwiched it, quilted it with an elongated zigzag stitch, and bound it.  Fun little project.

Speaking of our annual guild retreat, I won this table topper a couple of years ago when the theme was Halloween.

Happy Halloween!

I love pumpkins.
