    I have a fabric pumpkin 'panel' that you cut the pumpkin out, make the quilt sandwich, turn and hand tie here and there and then the instructions says take a wire hanger and bend and shape to back and then sew that hanger to the back and you can hang this pumpkin on your door! Can you picture that?

    BUT, I did not want that!! I thought I would cut a lot of 2 1/2 " patches and do a patchwork 'border" and baste that to the pumpkin panel fabric - like the pumpkin was the center medallion.

    WELL, after a couple rows pinned and sewn and moved around, I decide I am going to cut the durn pumpkin out of it's panel and applique that blessed pumpkin to the patchwork!

    SO, I have to add some more fabric here and there and rip some seams here and there. But I am getting it done! It will look pretty durn nice, even if I am the only one that thinks so.

    BUT all thru this, I have had to take several breaks and this is where I spend that time!! I will post a pic when I get the thing done, if I can still stand it . . . .
