    I'd meant to get this done by Thanksgiving, but it didn't happen. Of course, I only gave myself a few weeks to do it, and that was a little too ambitious for me.

    I'm thinking hand quilting is not for me, maybe once in a while on small quilts, and this one is pretty small, but for larger projects I'm going to see about machine quilting. I'm glad I tried it though.

    The quilt is about 50" by 50".

    The second picture shows the true colors better - it's done with a flash. The first shows the colors more faded than they really are, but shows the stitch lines better, including the hoop lines - I guess I need press or steam those out.

    You're ready for fall! Your quilt is lovely! Great job.
    Can you wait for September to hang it? Let's call it a summer quilt and watch the pumpkins grow for fall. :P

    I LOVE your quilt! Handquilting can take forever, but it's worth the effort on really special things like this. Beautiful work!
