It's Kismet

Kismet blocks
started June 2013
Marilyn and I saw a sample of this quilt in a Nebraska shop last May and decided to make one. Further down the road (in Fremont, NE), we found a great sale on Jenny Beyer fabric: it was kismet.

Marilyn and I made the pumpkin blocks the week before her anniversary party. She is using the checkerboard sashing (shown in the photo from the ThimbleCreek Quilts site) for her quilt, but mine will have plain sashing with cornerstones.

  1. I like how each pumpkin has a different block design. It must have been fun to put together.

  5. Very nice. I like the design. What a lot of detail work...with so many of the squares being different. What a fun quilt!

    1. I am so in love with quilts!! Our daughter-in-law gave us a beautiful quilt for Christmas, each square embroidered with the name and birthday of every member of our family. When I use it I think "I could do this!" If I had a new sewing machine, and if I had more time, and if I had the patience of Job!! Not going to happen!! LOL!

  10. Awesome! Somehow I didn't know you also quilt. The plain sashing should look just fine. I think choosing sashing is difficult!

  11. I have been curious as to how that quilt would turn out. It makes it extra special that you and your sister could not only purchase the quilt fabric together but piece together. I like it.
