"P" is for PUMPKIN

This is my October quiltie for the Alphabet Quiltie Swap on Fabric in Altered Arts 2.  The theme for October is "pumpkins".    I had the pumpkin fabric left over from a previous project and spied this candy wrapper on the side table.  Left there by my DH who loves marshmallow and chocolate treats.  I thought it would be a perfect embellishment for my pumpkin quiltie.  Foil was easy to sew through.  I them added a pumpkin border with my Janome 11000.  Edges were finished with a satin stitch.  I think this made a cute little quiltie.

Today I will mail all my October swaps.  I completed my Fall Intrigue Basket Swap and Countdown to Christmas Matchbox Swap.  Since I will be in and out most of October I've been working to fulfill all my swap commitments.  Fall is a fun time of year.
