Quilts in the Pumpkin Patch - and Giveaway



Harvest Pumpkins
WE HAVE A WINNER!  Sherry B. was selected as my winner and I am waiting for her to send her snail mail address.


Why wait for Halloween? There are pumpkins everywhere! This quilt was first published in 2004 (I think) and appears in my 2012 wall calendar of quilts (Avalanche Publishing). Can you believe that the striped outer border is a batik? In fact, the whole quilt was made with batiks. "Well? Can I have the pattern?" Not the quilt (publishing restrictions), but I will share the block pattern with you. Pull out those pumpkin oranges and some green for the stems and quickly rotary cut the patches and have a few ready for Pumpkin Day.

GIVEAWAY
As I no longer have any wall calendars except my personal copy, I am offering a copy of my 2012 desktop calendar which has hundreds of individual blocks and about 70 quilt projects in it. It's like getting several quilt books all rolled in one.
2012 Quilting Calendar with hundreds of patterns
This quilt appears in next week's listing in the 2012 calendar.
What do you need to do to be considered for this giveaway? Post a comment and tell me your favorite thing about autumn. Be a follower (either by email or sign up in the Follower link over on the right side). And if you already own this calendar, I'll put together a collection of batik fat quarters. My contest deadline: midnight Sunday, October 21. Winner drawn by Mr. Random Number Generator.

IMPORTANT: You can't be a "no reply blogger." I will have no way to contact you!

  2. Favorite thing about fall used to be the colors changing, but I don't see much of that anymore since we moved to TX. Now my favorite thing is that it is no longer 100 degrees! I prefer my temperatures to be in the 70s and 80s so I can wear clothes on my fatty body!! LOL.

  19. What I love about this season...too many things to list them all! I love the cooler weather (which makes quilting in my third floor room easier), the kids in school (which makes more time to quilt) and the beautiful turning colors (which make great inspiration to quilt.) I guess everything comes back to quilting, doesn't it? Thanks! pbstrand@msn.com

  25. Thank you for the pumpkin patch quilt block pattern Debby. I can hardly wait to try it. Fall is my favorite time of year. I've always loved the sights and smells of Fall (especially trees, pumpkin pie, bread, cookies). I was married in October 48 years ago and honeymooned by driving through the mid west looking at the Fall colors.
