Posh Pumpkins Around the World

Way back in May of 2013, Green Fairy Quilts was giving away a fat quarter bundle of Posh Pumpkins. And I won!! 

Like I said before, orange is my favorite color. I try not to drool over fabric, but this line is to drool for. After I received it, it sat on a shelf until I decided what I was going to make with it. 

I finally figured it out, I wanted my PQA friends to help me. Last year we were making blocks for each other, so I thought this would be the perfect time to cut that bundle into little pieces. I remembered the quilt everybody was making a while back and I knew this was the right pattern. I found Bonnie Hunter's pattern, cut up the fabric, and passed it all out. I received back 25 blocks. I love them. They are just perfect. All of those wonderful fall colors I love. I had a lot of fun with the layout, but decided on this design.

Now that all of the blocks are together, I know I did the right thing with this gift. The quilt measures 48 x 72, not a bad size!

Then one of my sweet PQA friends gifted me two charm packs of Posh Pumpkins and a stack of similar fabrics. Now I can make more blocks!!

I am so excited. I can't wait to finish this quilt!
