Fall Palette Pumpkin Patches Quilt

Pumpkin Patches Quilt Pattern

Halloween quilts aren’t for everyone, so I also made a Pumpkin Patches quilt  in a fall color palette.  I used a lot of the leftover fabrics from my Fall Leaves quilt, plus a few more blues and earth tones.

It’s tricky to find fall fabrics that aren’t too novelty looking….so I went with small scale florals and some basics in the right colors.

Super random tip you probably already do…if your feed dog plate has a little edge like my Juki does, and it flips your seams as you sew and they get sewn the wrong way, place a little piece of tape (or the leftover Diagonal Seam Tape you just used to piece the blocks!) and cover the edge to make it nice and flat as you sew.

This sews together so quickly!  I sent it to Knot and Thread Design, she chose a pretty fan design that compliments it perfectly. 

I only had this green 108″ wide backing fabric left in my stash…and even though it doesn’t match perfectly, I’m not one to piece a backing when I don’t have to!

I love that I can keep this quilt out through Thanksgiving…especially since my house always look bare bones for a month after I take down all of my Halloween decor and quilts.

Pumpkin Patches can be found here as  a PDF, or here as a Paper pattern.  

I sent my last Kindergartener off last week to all day school (they have to wear uniform colors).  It was so sad to leave her at school and come home to an empty house!  She’s loved it, besides being really worn out each day, and it’s amazing how quickly the day flies by and my time gets filled.   It’s so strange to not have kids home during the day for the first time in 14 years!

I know, I know…I already have at least 5 pumpkin quilts and 3 patterns for pumpkin quilts, but they are my favorite thing to make!   So when I had the idea for this quilt there was no turning back. 

 Pumpkin Patches had to be made!

I would call this the “fall twin” to my Brightly pattern.  The only difference is the pumpkin blocks instead of stars, and the cutting is different since you aren’t using print fabrics in the pumpkin blocks. 

This one is versatile in what you can use for the print fabrics…5″ squares, 10″ squares, fat quarters, or scraps work great for this quilt!!  Pretty much anything goes with this one.

To make this quilt, I used a Layer Cake (10″ squares), of Sleepy Hollow fabric by Melissa Mortenson for Riley Blake fabrics.   The oranges were a mix from my stash, all but one of them are here, here, here, and here.  The brown fabric is Earth, the background is Bella Solid 200.  

This fabric is cuuuute…as cute as Halloween fabric can be.  I did take out some of the lighter, repeat fabrics in the layer cake, and added in some fabrics from my stash.  A few violet purples, blacks, and greys.  

I love the purples, and bits of green and blue.

The quilting is by Knot and Thread, and it’s perfect as usual.  The backing is a gingham print I picked up at my local Joann store in the Halloween section.

The only problem with this quilt is that it’s finished, and I have to start another fall quilt so I’ll have something to work on next month!

I also made this quilt in non-Halloween fall colors…I’ll finish that up and share it soon!  

Pumpkin Patches can be found here as a PDF, or here as a paper copy.
