All Systems GO for creativity to make pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, bee skeps,baskets,and more

Just sat down to cut out my base fabrics for Autumn quilts of pumpkins and gourds and other lovely things like animals and other harvest things for a story quilt about Fall.

I am swapping gourds and pumpkins in my yahoo groups room and I am teaching alot of fun techniques at Madeline Island...imagine buttons spiders hanging from webs and cats that look like fall. This fabric is for gourds and pumpkins only. Inidan corn, pieced strata leaves and other piles of items are ready to be cut out and sewn. SO much to do, so much to enjoy with every stitch.

Oh the joy of creativity and fabrics! Hope you are enjoying the ideas that Autumn brings...I need some words in there too! Stay tuned....

New- just got a genius idea to draw up several Fall patterns blow them up large and take them to the workshop with me. Makes it more fun and easy to pick and choose........thank goodness for Kinko's!

Great strata and checkerboard. Are you using the checkerboard for the corn?

Love the bright colours for the pumpkins.

Off to pull some more fabrics and start sewing strata this weekend.
