Pumpkin Block

As promised, here is my second block this month for the RVQG BOM:


I found this to be a pretty challenging block.  The seam ripper was out more than once!  But I am already glad that I started this project, because it is giving me a chance to tweak my skills in a low-risk environment.

I made a very slight modification to the pattern by adding an angle to the stem.  I think it gives him a slightly rakish look!  I was up last night making more extensive modifications to most of the other blocks, and I designed the setting and border as well!

This is all because my sewing light burned out over the weekend, and I am waiting for the replacement bulb to arrive.  So all those new hand sewing projects I showed you last week are on hold!  No worries, though, I have plenty of other stuff to do.  ;)

  2. Thanks, Hetty! That tie-dyed orange is still a little dubious, but I thought, I'm never going to find a better time to use it!

    1. Thanks! The moon and stars theme is a great fit for LEDs, actually. But...this one will be quilted.

  4. I think the tie-dyed orange is great - fits well with the stars. Admittedly a pumpkin with that degree of mottling would be a risky addition to a meal - but I reckon it looks terrific.

    1. LOL. Thanks, Jillian! I was sort of thinking of a "zombie" pumpkin at the time!

    2. Although he does look a little too happy to be a zombie...
