My schedule tells me it's time to get out these embroidered blocks I made several years ago and play around with a setting.
Eight blocks is not my favorite number to work with. I can find a pattern and stitch up another so I have nine - but I'd rather work with what I have and get this one done.
I think I'm going with this setting of three down and two on either side, with some sort of blocks in the corners. I found a pumpkin print that has the same style of pumpkins as the embroidery, but I think it's a little too busy for a border. I also need to decide if I want to put contrasting sashing between the squares. The squares are also going to be trimmed down to a bit smaller than they are now.
In a few weeks you can look at the completed quilt and remember when I was planning all this. Knowing me, I'll change everything.
The pattern is called Jolly Halloween and is based on the vintage postcards of artist Ellen Clapsaddle. It's available on Craftsy.
