Twirl Through the Pumpkin Patch

Today is the most gorgeous Fall day.  The trees on our property have all changed and the sky is a perfect blue.  Combined with the sunshine and signs of football everywhere you turn, it's just a great Fall day!

Alright, it's really here.  I've flashed a few of the practice blocks and stencils over the past few posts.  No more teasing :-)

It is my great pleasure to officially introduce my newest pattern, "Twirl Through the Pumpkin Patch!"  

"Twirl Through the Pumpkin Patch," 50" x 64", original pattern by M. Rose Studios.

  All of the blocks are raw edge, fusible applique in the Positive/Negative style with pieced background sashes.  I really had a lot of fun designing and creating this piece.  Not only do I love fall colors, but I love putting bright batiks up against a strong background to really make the colors pop.  I've also never done a quilt that required so much math to make sure all the blocks would fit and assemble. 

This one started with me wanting to create a Tim Burton inspired pumpkin block.  The bigger of the pumpkin blocks came first.  Then came the owls, my personal favorite from the whole quilt.  Overall I am pretty happy with it and I hope you all enjoy it, too!

Next project for me is tackling writing out a pattern!  Wish me luck!

Thank you, as always, for checking in!  Be well and Quilt On!

  2. I just LOVE it! Can't wait to be able to get the pattern!! Beautiful lines and I really love different sizes too, this can be a quilt, several small things, wall art...anything! Fall colors are just so inspirational! Amazing job!

    1. Thank you!! And I agree - I love Fall colors so much! The pattern is coming soon. Just trying to figure out how to computorize my applique designs. :-)

  3. This is breath taking, I love it! I know what you mean about writing patterns, it's much harder (for me, anyways) to write down what I did so that others can understand it than it is to actually do it.

  4. I love love love this......any idea when the pattern will be available please? You know it's gonna find it's way into my pattern collection if it's got an owl or two on it lol
