While I haven’t made any of the quilts on the beds, I do have a tiny bit of quilting knowledge and a small stash of quilting cottons and an embroidery machine. With that in mind, I took myself to my fabric stash and pulled fabric with pumpkins in mind. It took a while, but I made some pumpkin placemats.
