Pumpkins & The Beanstalk Finished

Today I put the binding on the Pumpkins & The Beanstalk quilt.  I think it turned out lovely.

This quilt measures 63" x 73".  I quilted it using the Circle Lord giant template board called Jesters.  It is made completely of scraps except for the batting.  I stepped a little out of my comfort zone using that purple/grey/paisly print for the border.  I think it served this little throw quilt well.

I'm pretty sure I will be donating this quilt for a auction to benefit our son's Canton Challenger Baseball League.  There will be a quarter auction in November.  My question to you is, do you think it's still okay to donate a quilt with pumpkins on it that close to Thanksgiving?  I hope so.  I purposely did not put a label on the quilt.   Here's a picture of the pieced back.

Pumpkins & The Beanstalk is a pattern by Fig Tree & Co.  I made a smaller version for a baby shower in November of 2018.

I'm linking up at Elm Street Quilts for the July OMG finishes linky party.

I'm also linking up at Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making.

Kathy, pumpkins are fine decor all throught Thanksgiving. The orange color and stylized shapes do not scream Halloween but harvest time. You did an awesome job. Great finish!
