Pumpkins, Paper Piecing and Pirates....Arrrgghhh!

 Last week we finally got around to buying our Fall pumpkins....never been this late in October!  The one on the left is called a Cinderella Pumpkin.  It's supposed to be the best eating....but that had to wait...while we ate our Route 11 Sweet Potato Chips and Stewart's sodas!!
 Dana at Old Red Barn Co. had a quilt challenge for us. Find a color palette and interpret it any way you want....I found one called "Alone @ the Airport" and I knew that was the one...since that's been our girl....alone at many, many airports!
 Still having fun with English paper piecing....and buttons! 
 This month's theme at the Bitty Block Bee is Sewing.  I was a little stumped because I kept thinking of past sewing theme bitties.....then I looked at my jar of buttons...and made a jar of buttons!  The wee quilt was supposed to be on a clothesline...but it was too short so I made it a hitching post.
(Polly the Patchwork Pirate....arrgh matey!)
At work we have been busy cleaning the shop while Carly is at Quilt Festival in Houston....but we are still having fun!;)


  1. Wow what great pumpkins, is there some special celebration in October/November for pumpkins or are these just for the store cupboard?? Love your little mini quilt and the bitty's are so sweet.

    What fun you seem to have at work...makes it all worth while.

  2. OK, that Patchwork Pirate costume is FUN FUN FUN!!

  3. Ok I so totally love your tree! I need the it FQ?
