Design Wall Monday 3-04-11

Well here it is, mid-March already.  We had a glorious weekend here in South Louisiana, we take 'em when we get 'em cause they are hot in the summer!  We rode bikes yesterday but on Friday and Saturday I sewed and sewed and sewed all day long......both days!

And it was heaven!

I accomplished 9 pumpkins!  It is never too early to start a Halloween Quilt!  Two of my best quilting buds, Norma and Paula, also made 9 pumpkins.  And with Mary's 9 that makes 36 pumpkins in this world where there were none before! The blocks are 14.5 x 12.5 so they are pretty good sized.

Here are my pumpkins playing nicely with Mary's pumpkins.  They need their candy corn border now.  And we want to have a big flourish at one of the quilt meetings by showing them all at once!The background is really purple but it sort of shows up as blue in my photos.  Marys are the four top and the right side.  Mine are the cute ones.

Oh, this is a Buggy Barn Pattern and I love the Buggy Barn method of slicing then re-sewing.  But be is not for someone who obsesses about precision sewing.  Read my last post about that!



  1. I usually don't care for Halloween quilts but I LOVE your pumpkins. They are just too cute.

  2. What a cute pumpkin quilt! I know what you mean about taking advantage of the nice spring days when you can. Our summers are oppressive too.

  3. This is so adorable. I need to check out this method, it sounds very fun. They have such happy faces!!

  4. Loe your pumpkins! Very scary-licious!

  5. You sure got a head start: 9 pumpkins, way to go!

  6. Oh I love those - they look like happy pumpkins!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
