Who knew? Well, maybe you did – but I didn’t.
Just because you can grow it, doesn’t mean you can eat it!

Like some gourds . . .

Inedible Gourds

Gourds belong to the plant family known as Cucurbits. Most gourds aren’t for eating. hard-shell gourds are the type used to make bowls and musical instruments; they’re green on the vine but turn tan or brown as they age. Ornamental gourds are the type you’ll usually see for sale around Halloween; they come in colors like green, orange and yellow and are used as decoration. Both hard shell and ornamental gourds come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Luffa gourds are cucumber-shaped and, if left on the vine for long enough, turn hard and can be used as sponges. from LiveStrong

I was pleasantly surprised to learn, I could do lots of different things with my mini Pumpkins, including eating them!

I love decorating the table and house for the seasons.

The Island Batik Fabrics used in these projects are ideal to create rich vibrant pieces for your home.

Pumpkins are perfect for decorating

  • The Place mats highlighted in this project are made with the equinox collection of fabrics.
  • They were designed to highlight the nine patch block from my Equinox Sampler Quil tProject
  • The pattern will be included with the Sampler Quilt Class I am launching soon.
  • It is designed to reinforce skills learned in the class

Mini Pumpkins are so much fun they can be used throughout the house where big pumpkins just won’t do. Scatter them here and there, on window sills and bookshelves.

I tested a few recipes using my mini pumpkins I’ll be sharing that adventure later this week.
