Attempting a meg here!

Way back when Alex's message board was still in existence, there was a lady named Meg on there. A group of ladies got together to go to a quilt show or quilt shop somewhere, and Meg was one of the ladies in attendance. Oh, the stories that came out of that shopping excursion with Meg! It seems that everyone who got to the checkout counter had mysterious items in their basket! Turns out that Meg was putting things in there that she thought they needed and couldn't live without!

So from that day forward, "meg" became a word in our everyday vocabulary. To meg is to convince someone they really need to buy some quilty item. To be megged means you've been talked into it. Several times I have typed the word "meg" on my blog, but realized that no one would know that it meant.

With that explanation in mind, look at what I found!

I've been searching and searching for a pumpkin quilt. Not a quilt that just had one pumpkin on it, but one that was full of pumpkins. I found this one this weekend. :)

Of course, I had to post about it to my online group, and I scored a couple of notches in my megging belt. Those ladies are wise to my ways, but I can always manage to meg one or two among them. Just wondering .... will anyone admit if I've been successful in my megging attempt here? I guess it would be a cyber-meg!

I said I wouldn't do any more BOMs unless it was something I had on my list. Guess I megged myself with this one! :)

Vicky, it took me forever to figure out about the megging but then someone explained it. If I knew how to applique, I'd definitely be signing up for that BOM or at least getting the pattern.

You get it and keep us posted. It's a beautiful pattern and will be fantastic with your great applique!

Now that we have been megged, where did you get the pattern? I've seen that done with snowmen, but never pumpkins, and I really like it.

You megged yourself - teehee! I've seen that quilt on several on-line sites and have had to talk severly to myself to keep from ordering it. LOL I'll live vicariously through you! :-)

What a cute post!

LOL! In one of those 3:30 am insomniac moments you ALMOST megged me. I got as far almost hitting the submit button at the checkout stand before I came to my senses. Not to say I might not go back in the light of day and still purchase it because it sure is a beauty. But I'll let a clearer mind make that decision. LOL!

I like the pattern, but I resisted the temptation to be megged. I've got enough quilts planned for now. But I'll be excited to watch you make it. You did buy it, didn't you?

One of my best friends is called Meg and is American. She now lives in the Pays Basque so don't think it can be her somehow, although the cap does fit!
