Leaf me on the Pumpkin Patch (and Giveaway)

 
 
 Today is my day for the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop! YAY! (PS: it is my Mom's birthday today!)
 
Please stop by and send your love to the other participants of the day's hop.

Wednesday 10












Also, head on over to Cherry's blog for the full schedule.

Now for my bock! I found this fun fall pumpkin patch fabric at Joann's a few weeks back and could not resist it (Must make pot holders with the rest). This is the block I started with.

And if you know me, I just had to add a rainbow (ish) to the design, so I added orange and yellow to the mix.

After some trial and error I was able to successfuly FMQ the runner (YAY), and added binding. I also added some applique, suggestion via Stephanie. I love how it turned out.

Steph asked me what I was going to do with it and suggested I donate it to our church for the Octoberfest silent auction. BUT I love it too much to let it go right now. It is the first home decoration I have made for our home. Also (don't think i'm stingy!) I already donated a good 20 items, all hand made, for the auction (not all will be used though). Procedes to charity.

Now for the giveaway! Go here! to be entered to win a sewing stuff grab-bag from my stash.

(Colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Pink, Purple, White, Black)


Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Very nice tablerunner. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it. And as you said you've already donated lots of things. It is so cheerful and says FALL. I really like the different sashing around the blocks. Thank you for participating in the blog hop and sharing your creativity. You are generous to give away things from your stash. Again, thanks for participating.

  36. I think you should keep it for yourself as a reward for making all those other items for the Church auction. It's a bright and cherry tablerunner. I think you earned it for your own home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia
