Pumpkin Spice

Mmmmmmm. I love pumpkin pie and the colors that go into it! My next quilt will have all those colors. Deep pumpkin orange, dark brown nutmeg and clove, golden ginger, cinnamon, and even though it does not go in the pie, a deep, pumpkin stem, green.
Not one single pastel! Look at this pumpkin colored fabric I picked up. It is hard to get the right colors on the computer, but it is the exact color of a fresh baked pumpkin pie. It will be in the quilt, but will also be the wide border with a deep nutmeg as the smaller border.
Not sure about you but I can not wait til Thanksgiving!

Orange is my favorite color, I love fall and everything about it! Those are gorgeous colors, you're making me want to pull out my fall fabrics too! Actually i am a season further along, I am working on Bonnie Hunters new Christmas mystery quilt and am making 2 of them. I imagine it will be awhile before I can have my fall fabrics to work with!Can't wait to see your quilt, especially love your hand quilting on them!!
