Pumpkin Petals Quilt Block : :

I am certainly on a role with my Bottled Rainbow Quilt! This is block number three -- my Pumpkin Petals quilt block.

I can't believe I have completed three blocks in just one week! Here you can see my Pumpkin Petals, my Buttercup Sunburst, and my Ruby Love birds.

Kudos to Rachel for organizing such a fun quilt-a-long! Too be honest, my first block was a little shaky, I almost started over. Now I am completely enjoying this! Every bit of it, in fact! The layout, the basting...
the zig-zag stitching of each scrap in place. Even though I often have to leave my block just like this several times a day until it's all finished, which does drive me a little crazy.

I especially love that this projects leaves so much room for your own little twist. There are some really inspiring ideas floating around the Flickr Pool -- I hope my idea of a Mandala inspired design adds to that. I only wish I could have started my blocks sooner to be more at pace with Rachel (who's already finished!) Regardless, I'm having fun!
