What other criteria does the challenge have - other than pumpkin and less than 120 inches?

Any technique? Is it the colour pumpkin or the actual pumpkin shape? If it is pumpkin shaped I would Google Halloween pumpkin wallhangings. If you want to do pieced, what about a Twister pumpkin? I have seen the Twister tool used for hearts, trees, hats...and a pumpkin should be fairly easy to draft on graph paper.

This is a table runner pattern I found at the LQS. I liked it so much I made two. Here's the link to the pattern: http://www.suzannesarthouse.com/imag...n_Pumpkins.jpg

and here is my basted, but not quilted top.

Is it 120" total for all 4 sides? (that would be a 30x30 quilt if square) so a wall hanging size or table topper. Table runner you could do a rectangle 20x40...you could do something pieced with pumpkins appliqued on top, an autumn scene with pumpkins, Hope you get enough ideas!

What about doing pumpkin runners that could be hung side by side and be a continuation. Almost like being in a pumpkin patch.

I would do something with pumpkin pies, and maybe use baking utensils as a background, or a fabric with cinnamon, nutmeg, words on it.
