Pumpkin Love for My Kitchen

I don't have a big Friday Finish
but, for the first time in ages,
I have one!

I couldn't wait to stitch this pattern for a quick little pot holder that is perfect for the season.
The pattern is an original by Carol over at Just Let Me Quilt.

This pumpkin pot holder is 7 1/2" x 7 1/2"
 (I enlarged the pattern a tad)
and was paper pieced with scraps from my stash.
I doubled the cotton batting and quilted the pot holder with my walking foot and simple straight lines.

Sewing this sweet project has helped me with my quilting mojo.
I've started a few things.

How do you get your sewing mojo back?!?
