Little Paper Pieced Jack O Lantern

Wonky Jack

The quilting gene runs in our family, however I (Jen) am the exception. So, I not only appreciate those who quilt but I love being the beneficiary of quilted gifts and I just received one last week!

Check out the cute, paper-pieced Jack O Lantern wall decoration my mom gave me for the house this fall. I love the different fabrics she used -- especially for the teeth.

This foundation paper pieced Wonky Jack pattern came from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting Magazine 2004 and there is a $5.99 digital version which includes this pattern as well as others.

It turns out that my sister received her own Wonky Jack from Mom years ago and proceeded to make one for a friend as well.  This pattern is quite easy to follow once you get the hang of foundation paper piecing. There are plenty of great tutorials online for the technique, like this one and this one, and it's nowhere near as difficult as it may seem at first glance.
