October Monthly Mini


Aptly named, “Pumpkin Patch”, this month’s mini was a joy to make. I added a bit of extra batting to the pumpkins and hand stitched the curves to simulate the real thing.

I used this whimsical Halloween print on the back. 

Who doesn’t love pumpkins? They are cute, colorful and they taste delicious. 

Cruise through my fellow mini maker’s pumpkin patches to see what they have created this month.

I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  2. Pumpkin Delite! I've been trying to disect how you accomplished the quilting - it appears that you ditched all the seams to one layer of batting, then added the extra pumpkin batting and the backing fabric and requilted just the pumpkin lines? However you accomplished this, it's just fabulous!

  3. What a beautiful fall mini, Wendy! Excellent fabric choices all around--I am especially partial to the leafy border you used. Brilliant. :)
    The curved lines of hand quilting really are the perfect finishing touch.

  4. very cute...and i love love love the back! i brake for!

  13. Your mini pumpkins are so sweet. I love the sashing fabric. Hugs

  14. I have never seen the Minnick and Simpson pumpkin print you used for the backing. Must be an older one. A good choice.

  15. This is so beautiful! I love all the fabrics you used on this. I am impressed that you were able to get the pumpkin look without adding the stems.

  16. Cute little pumpkin mini. LOVE the variety of orange prints you used! What was the finished size of your quilt?

  17. Oh my goodness, what a fun quilt! I love the pumpkin fabrics and even more I love the green cornerstone fabric combined with the grey sashing fabric. All together, just delightful.

  18. Another great little quilt, Wendy! Excellent use of color!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
