We Have a Flimsy :)

I got my pattern in the mail yesterday and had a bunch of nuetrals and oranges pulled.

Like Nanette says," I don't know what it is about little
squares but they make me happy." I agree whole heartily :)
I usually cut the squares from left over projects and it's fun to see past quilts in my new projects. But I worked on the smaller pumpkin yesterday and finished the top today- tomorrow I'll baste it for hand quilting. It's going to be so pretty hanging on my door this fall. Notice I left them as pumpkins and not jackolanterns- so I can enjoy them longer. Somewhere I have that panel I hand quilted last fall I need to find and put a hanging sleeve on. It was just a panel to get me back into hand quilting practice but will be lovely just the same,
As for the placemats I was putting borders on to finish- they're too big :(
So I'm going to use them for the doll quilts the guild is collecting to go with 16" dressed dolls some of the members finish for little girls for CHristmas.....

I love seasonal items like this one. It is so pretty. As for small little pieces, if it were me, it would make me feel like a little girl again with not a care in the world.

Your pumpkins are really cute, Kim! It sure has felt like fall lately, so you'll be needing that wallhanging soon.
