Pumpkin Soup, w/ pics finished

Recommended Posts

Well I finally finished it. I had some tension issues in the bobbin and ended up frogging one whole row of the middle E2E. Now that I have learned that lesson, I will always stop and check the tension at the beginning of every row. What took 10 minutes to quilt, took hours to frog!!!!

Anyway, here it is done, I deliver it tomorrow. I am really happy with it, I hope my customer will be too!

Thanks for looking! Happy Quilting!

I was expecting to see a nice steamy bowl of soup with fresh crusty bread rolls and a recipe lol

I must say I like your version of pumkin soup much better (I've just had dinner)

Very tidy quilting, Love the swirls and the leaves are lovely. Customer will be pleased :)

I with Satu, thinking it must have been a great table set up if you're posting pics of a bowl of soup.:):)

Cute quilt, the swirls are near perfect so I'm thinking your Compuquilter was in action.

Compuquilter all the way! More PPP needed before I attempt anything like that freehand. I am getting better at SID, and the piano key border was so easy with the channel locks.

Thanks for all your nice comments!

Only 19 days to Christmas!!!!!!!!

Kerry, That is really pretty! That CQ just rocks, huh? Those vines, and swirlies are perfect, and I love what piano keys do for borders.

Tracey, that black fabric is a Micheal Miller Fabric. Our LQS store still has some in stock, but that doesn't help you there. Hope you find some a little closer to home!

here is a link for it on his site:http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/MMF/Popup1_Swatch.cfm?Popup=6&&Kwds=floral

Kerry, I LOVE your swirls and leaves...very pretty!

When I saw the quilt, I thought of some fabric I have that would be good for this pattern. When I search for Pumpkin Soup, I can't seem to find this one. Did your customer use a specific pattern?

BTW, did she like your quilting as much as we do?! :) Laura

Laura, I have contacted the customer, but have not heard back yet, will post as soon as I do. I am not sure what she thought of the quilting,she wasn't home, and won't be until today so will find out when I talk to her. The other ladies loved it.

Satu/Jolene, I wonder what Pumpkin soup would really be like! Pumpkin Pie is my favorite, maybe I will look for a soup recipe.

I really had alot of fun doing this quilt, and with every success, more confidence to do the next.

Only 16 days to Christmas!
