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 . . . .

Is this the adorable pumpkin patch project with the happy pumpkin in a hat? If so, can I buy the a pattern from you?

I did make one of these a long time ago and still have it and it worked fine, hanger and all. It is with my Halloween items put away or I would show you. Please show us a picture when you are done. I want to see what I could have done.
