Crazy Jack Wall Hanging

I am still sooooooo in the mood to make fall and Halloween things... hoping it will rub off on nature and the leaves will start to turn and the temps will drop!! Wishful thinking, I know!!
I made this adorable wall hanging called "Crazy Jack". It only took one charm pack from the "Pumpkins Gone Wild" collection from Moda.

The pattern comes with the jumbo rickrack for the mouth. It took only an hour to sew up the top- for real!! I plan on putting it on my front door next month!!

I stippled on the black part around the pumpkin to make the pumpkin pop out...only quilted the lines on the pumpkin. In the yellow border, I quilted "Jack O Lanterns grin, Bats fly, Witches take flight- Halloween".

In the corners I quilted pumpkins. And in the outer border I quilted big pumpkin leaves.

I've still gotta decide how to hang it... I hate putting on hanging sleeves BIG TIME!! Do you?
Next project...another Halloween one! The cute little table top mini-quilt in the latest Fons and Porter magazine!! I'll post it tomorrow! So, what are you working on??


  1. Love the wall hanging! Where did you get it?

  2. I am in the Halloween mood too! We used some of the same fabrics. The pumpkin is very cute, and it will look great hanging on your front door!

  3. I have wanted to make that pumpkin since it first came out but I cannot get the pattern by itself anywhere. It is always sold as a kit and since i already have the pumpkins gone wild fabric I do not want to pay $30.00 for a kit.
    can you share the source for the pattern? you did a lovely job on it.

  4. Polly, I love the wall hanging. I am not a super Halloween fan but I do love fall colors and I think this pumpkin is adorable. I hope you have a great year in your classroom. Take care.

  5. I am adoring this quilt. Since pumpkins are my thing, you may as well consider this "Cindy's" LOL

    And the quilted pumpkin looks awesome.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
