I was sad to miss Iron Craft last week... I had a GREAT idea too... it just didn't happen. sigh.
This week's challenge was Halloween!!! I already made a Bling Bling Pumpkin... so what to do....
Well, about a week ago Kaelin over at The Plaid Scottie posted about a FANTASTIC Pumpkin table runner!!!
She even included the pattern for FREE, download it here.
It's so adorable I would have definitely paid for it.... =) I've been itching to do it, and this week's iron craft gave me the perfect 'excuse' to work on it.
It was really fun going through all of my scraps to find yellow, orange and brown. I LOVE SCRAPPY projects. =)
Kaelin uses linen as her background and it looks awesome. I think that if I ever get a chance to make one for my mom I'll use linen. I am just in love with this music note fabric I bought a while ago. I seriously think I need to buy a bolt. It's subtle gold music staff and such a beautiful creamy color. =)
I found an awesome fabric scrap for the 'stem'. It's got a lot of goldy/browny/orangey color in it. I thought it would be perfect! I think it turned out well.
So far I only have this one block done. I chose to start with the biggest pumpkin because I figured it would be the most fun. yay!
