I've got a few minutes before we start making some Magic Cookie Bars for a junior high school band lunch tomorrow, so I'll quickly show you these pictures of my most recent finish.

My friend Jen made one of these cute mini quilts a few weeks ago and I thought they were adorable!

A sweet little pumpkin, Boo Crew fabric, what's not to love?


I had a great time putting it together using the kit from Sew Lux Fabrics along with their free tutorial.

A zig zag stitch or a blanket stitch were their suggestions to attach the stem, but I chose to use raw edge applique.

A smaller regular straight stitch close to the edge of the stem was all it needed.

I don't think I've ever tried that applique method before, so that little stem was the perfect place to start! 

The text fabrics from this line are my favorite!

Especially the multi-colored one on the back.

Jen's ideas for the quilting really worked well on the quilt, so that's how I did mine too.

Some straight line quilting with a little pumpkin detail finished up this mini quilt nicely.

Now it's done and ready to enjoy for Halloween!

That's so cute! I keep saying I want to make a pumpkin quilt! Maybe I'd better do that before I use up all of my orange fabric! :0)

What a cute finish! I love the boo crew fabric and I don't think I really appreciated the text prints until you mentioned them. Does sweetwater ever design fabric that isn't totally awesome?
