Ye Halloween Crazy Quilt Pumpkin from Vintage Vogue

"The Old Black Cat by the Pumpkin sat
With candle agleam on Halloween"

Here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection. It's P123 from my Vintage Postcard CD.

Print the pumpkin directly onto computer printer fabric with your inkjet printer, then use it as the foundation for your crazy quilt block with the center image already in place.

To use this foundation pattern, align the edge of your fabric with the dotted line and sew on the straight line. Flip the fabric over and press toward the dotted line.

Stitch two pieces of fabric together (1-1, 1-2 and 2-1, 2-2 and 3-1, 3-2). Treat as one piece of fabric for 1, 2 and 3. Stitch three pieces of fabric together (4-1, 4-2 then add 4-3). Treat as one piece of fabric for 4.

Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons and beads.

Happy Halloween!
