Squash done

Today I finished appliqueing the squash and pumpkin block.
I am really loving it (even if it does need a good iron!) except for that empty space there on the top right corner. I think I might need to unpick the pumpkin stem and slip another leaf under there to fill the space.

Edited to add: Thanks to a great suggestion by Deb of Cluttered Quilter, instead of another leaf, I'm going to embroider a tendril to fill up the space! Thanks for the fantastic idea Deb!

Hi! I am a first timer, but I like the block. If you really think it needs more in that right corner, how about a pumpkin tendril? Embroidered? Just an idea!!

Tendril is the key. I agree.
