Stacked Pumpkins Applique :: October Inspired Collection

I still have the Wisconsin grandbabies at the house so this will be a quick post. Pumpkins have become iconic… representing all the wonders of Autumn. Here, we have two stacked pumpkins, ready for picking. Whether we use pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns, for baking, for soups, for seeds or just for decorations, come autumn, you can never have enough of them?

As always, this applique block was designed to fit a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs.
