Pumpkin Block 1- Applique Prep

Last night I traced out everything, prepped the fabric, cut and basted. I think this pumpkin-crow block is adorable but I hate the top left corner of the pumpkin. I am going to take it apart and shave off a bit of that edge. It's just too weird looking.

Happy Summer!

It has been far far too long since my last post (January). Some of my blog posts were affected by the "bug" on Blogger, and I just got annoyed and gave up for 6 months.

I haven't had much time lately to quilt- my job is quite busy and demanding. When I get home, I just want to make supper then kick my feet up for the night. It is a huge stress reducer (unless you are watching TV, miscalculate and are now an inch short of fabric that came in a kit from 4 years ago!) so I have gotten back on the wagon.

A friend at my LQS had won a Jan Patek quilt kit a while back and she didn't like it and gave it to me (SCORE!).


I don't have a light box so I use the window for tracing. 

Love these homespun fabrics!
