It's almost time for Thanksgiving! And turkey, stuffing and all the bounty of the harvest.
I wanted to add a little splash of autumn color to my home so I put together this little collection of foundation-pieced pumpkins and gourds. Some are scrappy, some aren’t but all are easy enough for a beginner to make. I put them together in a row for a festive table runner.
The patterns are available as a set through craftsy and each makes an 8” block.
They go nicely with my new napkins.
ETD I decided to use up some stash and make some fun autumn inspired napkins. Basic tute for them is here . These are double sided and 15” square before binding. I put a simple corner-to-corner line of stitching down the center to hold the 2 halves together in the wash. Makes a nice sturdy napkin out of quilting weight cotton.
Let the tryptophan-induced coma begin… Happy Sewing!
