Penny and I managed to find some time to finish sewing her pumpkin block for the Little House on the Prairie Sew Along last night after all of her homework was done. I really like her fabric sections for this block. She’s really a textured solids fan so I think that I will need to replenish my stock for her future blocks. She used an orange Grunge for Almanzo’s milk fed pumpkin. Then she asked me if I had something brown with lines to suggest a stem. I love that she was looking for something more than just the right color! We found this brown print with a wavy line that she thought would work out well. The background floral incorporates lots of the colors that she has chosen for other blocks so far. We have the barn block all cut out too and I imagine that it will be done by the end of the weekend.
