IN PURSUIT OF A PATCHWORK PUMPKIN

A couple of weeks ago at the quilt store,  I bought this stack of 42 five-inch squares of Moda flannels. I had nothing in mind for their use -- just that the great autumnal colors and patterns attracted me.
Then, I had an idea in the middle of the night!!  
In the morning, I could hardly wait to get to my sewing machine.
I had no idea that I had been in Pursuit of the Perfect, Patchwork, Plaid Pumpkin.

I'm joining the following blogs to celebrate the beginning of Autumn:

Isn't it great how inspiration can strike!

And so glad you picked them up when you saw them rather than having to run back and hope they were still available.
