Ghostly Ghouls Blog Hop

I love the colors of Halloween.  When Carol of Just Let me Quilt announced the Ghostly Ghouls Blog Hop I knew I wanted to participate.  And of course I had to make a pumpkin...


 I started by digging in my scrap bin for oranges.  I found some lights and some darks and cut 2 1/2" half triangles on my Accuquilt cutter.  Then I sewed them together as shown below.


Next I traced a pumpkin outline onto Steam a Seam 2 fusible webbing and stuck it to the back.  then I cut out the outline edge of the pumpkin.


After that I added some black shapes for the face and quilted it to look like a pumpkin.  I didn't want to use more black for the binding and I already had some white binding made so I went with it.  I like that it contrasts.


I hope you get to quilt today!

Suzy
