The Great Pumpkin is Coming

Oh, maybe not. But he might! To be sure you're ready, how about a pumpkin quilt or two?

Kitty in the Pumpkin Patch
This is one of my favorite pumpkin quilts. The blocks are paper pieced and all the fabrics are batiks.
And spiders? I don't like them, but these pjs for my grandsons are certainly part of the season!

Scary spiders ready for pumpkin day
Now for the FREE Harvest Pumpkin Quilt pattern. Yes, I said FREE (well, I typed it, but you know what I mean). I wanted to share it now, in September, because you need to be ready when the Great Pumpkin comes by and wants to see how sincere you are.

Harvest Pumpkins - 25" x 34"; 8" block
This appeared in Quilt Magazine several years ago and was also featured in my 2012 Wall Calendar of Quilts. I've been "paid" for it twice, so that's why it's free. You can get it at my Craftsy Store where it's a FREE download. I find it works better to offload my patterns there than to clog up my bandwidth at my server.

So, get crackin' and get sewing. The blocks are easy to stitch and while you may not be able to find the same awesome orange and black stripe, I'm sure you'll have a great time digging through your stash or even go shopping!

  2. Thanks for the pumpkin pattern, Debby. It's great! I actually do like spiders. They are mostly shy and stay out of my way, and they eat pounds and pounds of other insects that I don't like!

  4. Cute pumpkins. But, the pjs really are great! What pattern do you use for them. Do they have tops? I have 3 granddaughters who might like these. Maybe not spiders but a cute Halloween print. Thanks.
