Awesome fun placemats

 I finished the two placemats I started last week...
I decided they needed more than just the buttonhole stitch around the pumpkins...
So I added some Xs on the sides and in the ditch quilting along borders
and then I did some free motion  heart leaves and loops around the pumpkin...
The fabrics I used were:
Awesome by Sandy Gervais
the black is Holly Holderman antique dots by Lakehouse
the orange for the pumpkin was in my stash and the selvage said The Cat's Meow...
I went online to research it and the ad is described below...
The Cat's Meow - Tonal Curls & Swirls - Flame Red
Butter, Orange, Flame RedLooking for a whimsical border, backing, background or quilt block application that is full of movement and joy? This little print is just the ticket! Done with a limited palette and on a small scale, you'll want to include this in your stash of fabrics to have on hand. Larger curls are about 3/4", from 'The Cat's Meow' collection by Bella Lu Studio for South Seas

SO.....I actually finished something.....will add it to my finished project list...
The last finish I did was in May!!
Smiles and hugs....Caryl
