Lots o’ pumpkins!

Here are a few more tablerunners I finished up before Halloween.


What fun it was to pick fabrics and make each one unique!


This low volume version was my favorite of all of them.  The binding is a beautiful 30’s inspired basketweave pattern.  The same fabric also comes in blue, yellow, and green.


I wrote up a super tutorial for making one of your own and will be posting it soon.


We collected quite a few other pumpkins this Halloween!


Bea has teeth fit for a Jack-o-Lantern!


I let her carve most of the pumpkins this year.  Seven is old enough to use a steak knife on a pumpkin, right?  At final count, we tallied up 13 pumpkins on our front porch.


She also did her zombie/vampire make-up all by herself. 


We did the annual corn maze and pumpkin patch visit.


Esther makes a darn cute pumpkin.


There aren’t even enough head holes for our entire family anymore.  Here is Bea our first pumpkin patch visit when she was just one year old.

I’ve got all my penny patches sewn together for the quilt along and can’t wait to share them as soon as I get some photos.  Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. OMG they are just adorable! Your kids AND those tablerunners! I also think that 7 is old enough to use a steak knife on a pumpkin. It just has to be a bit exciting, right? ;)
    So smart to make the table runners with pumpkins and not Jack O´Lanterns so you can enjoy them for halloween _and_ thanksgiving!

  12. The pumpkins are very cute, but nowhere near as cute as the children. It looks like a wonderful time was had by all. That is such a nice tradition for them.
