Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop - The Final Day, Giveaway, and My Day

We are celebrating fall this week
with the
Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop.

Today is the last day and I'm sad to see it end.


My vision became a reality thanks to everyone who played along.

It has been so fun to see pumpkins take center stage for one week
and
to all that participated or commented -
Thank you so much!

It's been such a fun week.


It's my day to share my pumpkins
and
I made this pillow to remind me of this blog hop.


Just a little fusible applique with
on a background of white then a little orange to snowball the corners.


It matches pretty close to the button.
Well, it should, I designed the button too. *wink*


And here is my Pumpkin Surprise quilt.


Finished size:  40" x 40"

The animal blocks are in my Craftsy shop.


There is a raccoon, an owl


a fox, and a bunny


surrounded by friendship blocks with itty, bitty pumpkins in the center.



Here is today's line-up of bloggers.


and if you missed the beginning of the week,

There's a Pinterest Board where you can see all the
Pick a Pumpkin
projects from the hop.
