Let's Book It - September Link-Up

VroomansQuilts

It is hard to believe that there are only three months left in the year - and there are way more books, patterns, print outs, etc. on that shelf that I haven't explored yet.  I hope you have been enjoying exploring your lost treasures thru the year.


This was the book I pulled from that dusty shelf - the shelf has since been dusted by the way.  I don't remember buying this book, I believe it was something I pulled from the Traveling Stash Boxes a couple of years ago.


This was the project I selected from the book - something to go with the coming season.  This is a very long table runner, so I decided to make some changes for a wallhanging.


Fabrics were selected and prepped - everything for this project came strictly from my scrap baskets which is a plus.

.
Rows of purple HSTs made.  I was surprised how close that paisley looked so much like the one pumpkin figurine's shirt pattern - my SIL pointed it out to me.


Pumpkins in a viney bed, waiting for their placement and faces.  Well, I decided NO faces after playing with lots of cut outs, placement and goofing around.  This needed to be simple and done.


Some curly vines, leaves, and thread painting was my finish with the pumpkins and of course I had to add some buttons.  Now this can hang from September right thru November.

  4. your wall hanging turned out very pretty. My mother has been here and she pulled out a book that had exactly what she need to finish some antique stars. What a nice coincidence that was, you never know what is hiding in those books that have been there forever.

  10. Very cute, I applaud your decision to leave the faces and quilt it. It's really pretty-the HSTs are in one of my fave colors so that appeals to me as well. All around - job well done !~!

  13. Love the pumpkin wall hanging. Great idea to leave off the faces so it says "fall" rather than "Halloween".
