A project I have been wanting to make




For many months, I have owned this book and I have been wanting to make this quilt but I hesitated because I wanted each block to showcase a different pumpkin.
So for months, I browsed clip art designs, magazines and pumpkin patterns so I can add different pumpkins to this quilt.
Finally after months of machine appliqueing these pumpkins, I am ready to add a border and start the quilting process.
This project took me a long time since I made one for my daughter too.
It seems I work in multiples now :)

I love pumpkins too , this is a really sweet pattern and I like how you have used a variety of fabrics to showcase the pumpkins ,wonderful job. Is your DD's the same or have you changed it some?

Two for the price of one sounds like a bargain to me. The second block always seems to go much faster.
