I just finished up a Fabric Applique project - a Smiling Pumpkin! I got this picture finished just in time for Halloween too. I found the pattern for this pumpkin in the book 'A Penny a Month' by Bonnie Sullivan. It is a very good book that has 12 patterns, on for each month. I am pleased with how easily the project went together! I think all I would change about it is the background fabric - might look better on a darker background. I don't know if I will make all 12 of the designs, but I will definitely give the July and November a shot!!
