    Here is a pic of the top before I put the borders on. This is the project I had so much trouble getting enlarged to print out.
    This is the same one that I have basted at this point, and it needs to be re-basted because of puckers.
    Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

    I hand-dyed the background fabric and the yellow for the eyes/nose/mouth. Since I've gotten the borders on, it looks much better.

    I used varigated thread to sew around all the appliques. I used orange around the pumpkins and green around the leaves.

    [detour/scenery quote] I like it because it suits me so well. Any time I get off on a wrong route somehow, I like to think of it as an adventure. :D

    We often take the backroads just for fun. There is so much we miss by staying on the main highways sometimes. It's amazing what you can see out there. Usually, the time we make is just as good as or better than highway time because it cuts out a lot of traffic problems. :D

    Ditto on the backroads...My hubby prefers the interstates when available...I would just as soon take the smaller highways.

    Posting question...I have tried, but can't figure out how to put a quote in that nice little box. Tips, pls? Thx :)

    Great job!!! You should be proud. I love the fabric and can't believe you dyed it yourself. What did you use for the fabric? Again great job.

    Above each person's new post, there is a light blue line...right above your screen name...follow it all the way across to the top right corner at each person's new post there is a "quote" button. Just click it. Did that make sense?

    Thanks! It means so much to hear these compliments. I LOVE dying fabric! The fabric I dyed was just some white muslin.

    I can't stand it any longer, so here is a picture of the top with the borders. It is basted in this pic, so that's what the big stitches are! AND the reason the stitches are so far apart on the pumpkins is that it is just holding some extra batting for more fluff in the pumpkin area. The rest of the quilt is basted closer together and better, BUT I do still have to re-baste because of those puckers. I just wanted to share!

    Here is a pic where you can see the backing fabric. The backing is just something that popped out at me at WM. I thought it would be fun to have something very different on the back, and it fit the theme. ;)

    Too late now, but I wish I would've used a darker yellow fabric on the bottom pumpkin. The orange is very bright and the yellow blends a little too much with it. I may use some darker colored thread to quilt around the eyes, nose, and mouth on this pumpkin.

    Just imagine the softer yellow pumpkin has frost on it. Maybe when you quilt it, you could use a thread with a sparkle!
    Just leaving it is way too cute also. Looks great.

    Hmmm...that's odd. I just go to the end of the person's quote where the "]" is and click my mouse there and usually hit the space bar to make sure I'm in the right place. You can also choose to "Preview" (right beside "submit") your post instead of "Submit" to see what it looks like first. Keep trying! ;)

    "Frosty the pump-kin..." I may just quilt with some darker thread around the yellow on that one. I haven't had a chance to touch it this weekend.
