Finished Patchwork Pumpkins Runner...

I'm ready to share my finished Patchwork Pumpkins Table Runner (pattern by Shabby Fabrics) with you.

The pumpkins were pieced patchwork and then appliqued' onto the block fabric, along with a stem and leaf. After I finished that, I embroidered the tendrils onto each block stitching a stem stitch with three strands of embroidery floss.
I machine embroidered the assembled blocks and finished with the binding. It's almost 60" long and 12 1/2" wide, which is just the right size for our dining room table.
I tried it on the buffet, and I think it looked great there, too. For now, I'll leave it on the table, but if I decide to do something different for the table, it's nice to know I have this great place to showcase the runner.
I guess it is possible to have a touch of autumn in south Florida. In fact, I'm inspired to add a few other pieces. Now, for a little cooler weather and we'll be all set!
