Mother Goose Quiltie Pattern #19
Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater,
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her;
Put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.
Perhaps you never knew before how Peter Peter kept his wife in a pumpkin. Pumpkins aren’t big enough for houses, but this was a very large one, and Mrs. Peter Peter was a very small wife. If you can outline this as well as you can play it on the piano, you will have another fine Quiltie, and one that cannot get loose and run away.
