In October my quilt guild will hold an auction of handmade, baked or grown items. I started a couple of pumpkin placemats that can be used for a lot of the fall season. The leaves and pumpkin parts are fused. The vine is couched yarn. I searched my stash and first used a green.
It was really the wrong color so I ripped it off and found a great brown hairy yarn.
I used a zigzag stitch to secure the appliques and add veins on the leaves. I had trouble deciding on what to use for the border until I decided on going scrappy. Quilting will wait a few days.
Hope you have had some fun on this Labor Day Holiday. I did.
Happy Sewing and
