Someone liberated my pumpkins!

Pumpkins are continuing to pile up on my work table.  It all started when I saw a really cute table runner on Bonnie Hunter's blog.   "Ooooo!" I thought, "Pumpkins!  What fun!"   The next thing I knew, I'd grabbed some of the orange scraps heaped on my table and made a pumpkin.   And then another.
Only my pumpkins ended up not looking like Bonnie's at all.  A little voice in the back of my brain had started whispering things like 'Why should they all be the same size?' and 'Matching corners are no fun at all!' and other bits of get-me-in-trouble ideas.
Next thing I knew, I had all kinds of wobbly squishes...



Now I'm adding bordery-bits around them and fitting them together like puzzle pieces.


I think I'm making a table runner.  So far, anyway...

I think your variety pumpkins are funner-er than "conformers." Love the swirly backgrounds too!

Ha! Those are really cute!
I prefer my stuff to be "different" and if I accomplish that, I am happy!
Love your wobbley squashes! =D

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! And I want one too. Short and tall, I love them all. Have fun in the pumpkin patch. ;^D

I really hope someone wants a full sized pumpkin quilt for their bed, because we all know that's where this is going.
