It's a flimsy ready for some hand quilting after I find a backing.
It was a blustery, beautiful day yesterday.
It's difficult to take pics of a flimsy when it's windy.
I'm surprised I managed to line up all the peels more or less evenly. The peels are appliqued to the background fabric and I don't do much applique.
I used all sorts of little scraps - tiny bits and pieces 3 inch long and in various widths in autumn colors - red, yellow, orange, purple, brown. The peels were paper pieced on phone book pages.
The pattern is from the book Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts by Biz Storms and Mary Elizabeth Kinch.
There's lots of fun little things to look at in those tiny scraps if you get close. That's my favorite kind of quilt.
And here it is with my new washing machine.
I love being able to do laundry on the deck and watch the world go by. (I'm not looking forward to winter laundry though. I guess I'll have to do that in the dark, dingy basement with the homemade wine and canned goods.)
And speaking of pumpkin peels and homemade...I roasted a bunch of pumpkins from the garden yesterday and left enough out of the freezer to make a pie today. Life is good.
