I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
I finally decided on my alternate block for my pumpkin wall hanging quilt. I decided that I wanted something that would make a secondary pattern, and when I came across a pineapple block in one of my quilting books, I knew that was the one. Pineapples in the Pumpkin Patch just seemed like a perfect name and a perfect idea. I found some cute fabric with little pumpkins on it that fit just right into the center of the pineapple blocks. Now I need to decide what I'm going to do for borders and binding fabrics. And, of course, the ever problematic question of how to quilt it. . .
