Peek-a-Boo Pumpkin Quilt

There once was a mischievous fellow named Stingy Jack, or so says the old Irish myth. 

The Devil – who had been tricked by Jack one too many times – didn’t want him, and heaven wouldn’t take him. So when he died, Jack was consigned to roam the earth forever with a lantern carved out of a turnip. Over time, he became known as Jack of the Lantern or, Jack O’Lantern. 

For hundreds of years, Irish folk carved spooky faces on turnips and potatoes to repel the ghost of Stingy Jack. Later, when Irish immigrants arrived in America, they discovered that pumpkins made the best jack-o-lanterns of all!

This week Jenny whipped up a pixelated pumpkin quilt that is sure to spook all your neighborhood ghouls and goblins. She used a custom layer cake that Riley Blake made especially for this project, and it was long-arm quilted with a spider-web pattern. Peek-A-Boo Pumpkin is the perfect size for a Halloween porch quilt, and it’s such fun to make!

Candy Twist Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets!

Our Shop Hop Quilt!

We are in the Show Me Safari Shop Hop again this year, and are having a blast!  This years theme is Halloween and we made a row quilt.  Each Shop designed it’s very own row.  I just wanted to show the picture of our quilt off to you!

Mom {Jenny} and Jill. Can you see my cute Dad at the quilt machine back there?

Can you guess which row we designed??

If you are on facebook you saw that I bought  a new {to me} sewing machine this morning! I am so excited!  The machine I’ve been using is awful and I’m excited to be able to sew some more.  I have some really fun projects and ideas I can’t wait to start on!

Mom of course, never stops sewing and we have more and more in the works for you all!

SO, have a great weekend.  I hope you do something you love.  Go out and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather with your family, or sew-sew-sew!

Talk to you soon,
