The Pumpkin Scrapatch

Kitty in the Pumpkin Patch
My tuxedo kitty, Butterfly, looks like a black cat from the back,
so this is her quilt.
It is a wall hanging so she does not get to curl up on it much, but
 she always finds it and gets as close as she can.
I love everything about fall ... the colors ... the leaves ... the crisp apples on the trees ... the pumpkin patches ... the scarecrows and cornstalks ... fall mums ... corn mazes ... and, of course, Fall Quilts!
Sew I was very happy to find this fun fall themed blog hop today! 
Sunshine in the attic
There are some great tutorials in the links and some fun giveaways.
 It is the last day so blog hop to it so you do not miss out!
I am not participating in this hop, just enjoying the show
and planning future projects.
I make at least one quilt for fall every year to make my home
cozy and quilty for the cooler weather.
These are some of my older quilts.
This is also one of my first fall quilts.
The center is a panel.
The border was my first attempt at flying geese.
I quilted this on my old Brother machine and it was one of my early home quilting efforts.I added a little extra batting under the pumpkins to make them a rounded.

I made this quilt last year and blogged about it Here

I made freezer paper quilt stencils to quilt this one.
 Tutorial on how I made the freezer paper templates
 and quilted it may be found Here
Here is a close up of the quilting.
Here is a sneak peek at this years' quilt ...
Come back in October as I will be showing you soon for the
Wicked Blog Hop @ Sew We Quilt
There is a fun 60's Hop happening there now!
I hope you have enjoyed my fall quilts!

Happy Autumn
