Here is the bag of quilts I delivered to the Paris Fall Fair yesterday. Small community fall fairs are a tradition that I hope will continue, and I enjoy contributing by entering my quilts and photographs in some local fairs, and by judging at other fairs.
To celebrate the start of the fall season I made this pumpkin block. I picked up the kit for this block at The Hobby Horse in the July Shop Hop. It was great fun to do some paper piecing again!
After the block was pieced I added just a bit of applique for the stem and leaves, and some hand embroidery to combine all of my favourite activities in one little block!
BTW, the quilt layouts for the July Shop Hop have now been posted on line so you can see what can be made from 14 quilt blocks.
I didn't collect all the blocks, and there are a couple blocks that I picked up but likely won't make, so I'm thinking my quilt might become a table runner using 9 of the blocks.
Here are the first 4 blocks for my version of the July Shop Hop project.
