I would appreciate any advice on continuing this quilt. I have hit a deadend.
I considered appliquéing pumpkins around the bottom (2nd pic), but I don't like how it looks, even though none of the stitching has been done on them. And I have very minimal/no experience with appliqué. My original design idea was to make fabric pumpkins (3d effect) and attach them to the quilt, but I have found that I cannot make any of them look like pumpkins. So I moved on to appliqué. I would love to hear any other suggestions to finish this quilt. I'd really love to have the pumpkins at the bottom with vines and leaves curling up towards the top on either side. Is there an easier or different way than appliqué? Would using green thread and stitching the vines and leaves show up? I know I am rambling, so I'll stop now and watch for ideas. Thanks.
