Playhouse Pumpkin, 9-6-21

This little quilt measures 16” x 22” which means you can sew it in an evening. Here are all the measurements – eventually this will be a free pattern in our online store.

Here is my Playhouse Pumpkin from a couple years ago.

This years pumpkin harvest – I didn’t plant any big ones that would be hard to carry. Smart, huh?

Reader quilts:

Chick close up. Feather duster is used as a substitute for mama – chicks hide in the feathers.

    Cute little pumpkin quilt. I may have to make one for my daughter in law – she loves decorating for Halloween and fall.
    Isn’t it funny how kitties will fit themselves into small spaces like that bowl. One of my cats used to love to sleep in an oval sink. He was a big kitty and filled the whole bowl.
    I spent the day with my sister and niece shopping for mother of the groom and sister of the groom dresses. It was fun to be with them.

    Thank you Mary for the nice easy pattern. It is very nice of you to think of us.
    I just love your color palette shown. All these nice bright colors catch my eye so might have to do some fabric shopping soon. Millie must be quite a snuggly cat fitting herself in the bowl.

    Happy Labor Day! Glad to see some chickens – glad you haven’t lost them all. The pumpkin quilt is so perfect for fall! You got a lot of pumpkins this year, so nice.
    Always love the “quilt show” of the quilts people have finished. Now on to #9 (after my wrist is better!)

    That bowl that Millie’s laying in doesn’t look the least bit comfortable! LOL Silly cat.

    Hi Mary,yes, l am going to make the quilt too,l love pumpkin soup and pumpkin scones! That might have been a hungry snake to eat so many chickens! I think it’s something bigger! Another wet and wild day in New Zealand! Best wishes to all, sandy

    Absolutely love Playhouse Pumpkin!! So much so, that I went into the sewing room to hit up my stash for orange material and only found a couple small pieces!! Now, how can that be?!?!? Out of all the stash I have, that I only have a couple small pieces with orange or anything that would even resemble fall weather material? Guess I will have to hit up Marketplace….LOL
    Millie is so cute in her “Too Small Dish”….just like a cat to cuddle up into something comfortable to her!
    Your pumpkin patch is nice, and small pumpkins are the way to go!!!
    The chickens are really growing and their “Foster” Mother is keeping them warm and safe I am sure. Hoping you had a nice and quiet Labor Day. We sure did. I pulled a muscle or something in my chest vacuuming of all things. Not sure how I did it, but I must have done it good, as it is so painful. Been on Ibuprofen and muscle relaxers since yesterday. Trying not to baby it too much so I can work the soreness out; but trying not to over-do it either.
    Much Love from SC

      Pulled muscle in the chest sounds painful! I hope you feel better soon. And maybe give up vacuuming as it’s too dangerous to your health! (That was said with a large dose of sarcasm 😉 ).

      1. Brenda in SC

        Thanks Susan! I would love to give up vacuuming, but with four dogs and about 1600 sq. ft of carpeting and a cleaning lady that only comes once a week, no chance of that!!! LOL!!!
        Sarcasm!! OH, how I love it…..please don’t make me laugh! It hurts!!! Hahahaha!!!

    Mary, thanks for the darling pumpkin. It’s just the right size and just the right difficulty for my scrambled brain! I’ll get on that today as I wait for some fabric to finish the current project.

    There certainly is a touch of FALL in the air.
    Time to pull the autumn quilts out!🍁🍁🍁
