Finally Finished Quilt and Belated Thank You

I have been so busy finishing my quilt that
I can hardly believe I let two weeks go by!
I did this quilt for a contest with Better Homes
and Gardens.

I scattered circles on the blue and green squares
and blanket stitched around them. I tried big
stitch quilting with floss in circles to match the
size of the circles. It was harder than I thought
to control the larger stitch length. But I
liked the way the back looks with all the circles.
I had left over circles and made two pillows
to match....

Now for an apology...I never got around
around to showing my cute Halloween gourd
that I won from Lynda at
Haunted Swamp Designs... Isn't it too cute!?

Thanks so much!
