Just look at all of those pumpkins out there in the field!
This 51" x 69" lap quilt started as a spin off of my Pumpkat Patch table runner,
since I've always loved the combo of pumpkins and leaves. In case you didn't already know, I do like cats too, and have played around with more pumpkin/cat settings, though they still need work - hah!
Anyway, I love how these pumpkins just pop off the black background! Of course, with all that orange and green, they'd pop off a grey or a cream background too!
That's one of the solid color pumpkins, while here's a pumpkin that's scrappy:
Combining the two styles in the quilt really adds to the interest, keeping the eye moving around that pumpkin field, wanting you to pick out your favorite!
As for the quilting on this: swirls in the scrappy pumpkins (thanks Vicki of Vicki's Crafts and Quilting for that idea!), curved lines on the solids, and veins in the leaves and stems.
The background is a fairly large stipple, mainly because I wanted this quilt to be soft and snuggly, and anything fancy would be hard to see on the black. The quilting is easier to see on the really pretty backing fabric.
Are you ready for a Pumpkin Harvest in your house?
Happy Quilting everyone!
