An (almost) finished Pumpkin quilt

Pumpkins Quilt Pattern

This quilt still needs a binding…but just pretend the binding is there because you and I both know it won’t be sewn on for another week, and I couldn’t wait to post this quilt.   Jane finally realized she likes getting her picture taken without me having to bribe her with 15 suckers every time I take a picture.   She’s so much fun…and also a total nightmare to take to the grocery store (Walmart pickup is LIFE CHANGING).  Also she still sort of smells like a baby and I LOVE IT.  

Oh yeah Pumpkins…

I love how this turned out with the cream polka dot background!

Oh a whim I decided to quilt it myself and use the green plaid from my Hazel fabric line for the backing.  Quilting while listening to audiobooks and podcasts has got to be one of my favorite things ever (this and this were fun audiobooks I “checked out” from my library).

I hung my other Pumpkins quilt in the dining/homework doing room for fall. 

It’s very orange…it literally glows from the kitchen.   It almost hurts my eyes in full daylight LOL.

Speaking of homework… my Ben is in Middle School this year (yikes!).

The background fabric I used is the Riley Blake cream and black swiss dot.  The oranges are a big mix from my stash, but if you want to know the name of a particular print just put it in the comments, most of them I know.  Info about my other older Pumpkins quilt can be found here Pattern can be found here.  

Happy fall finally!

    This is fun, I want one but know it won’t happen due to the backlog of projects. Maybe next year. x

      I have the same problem!

    Oh my…Jane is just adorable and what a smile…and the quilt is beautiful too! Looks like she enjoys pumpkins and now you have two quilts. Thanks for sharing this cute picture.

    Love how the pumpkin quilt turned out, especially with the cream colored background. And Jane is adorable as usual.

    Love it!! 🎃 I was just trying to buy the pattern, but site kept sending me back?!?! I tried about 3 times but no go😐 I guess it’s a no pumpkin quilt for me today😢. It’s still darling….

      Oh how strange! If it keeps doing that email me at and I’ll help you! It sounds like it’s your computer browser having an issue. Thank you!

    oh my, GORGEOUS!!! I made a Hallowe’en quilt, top has been all done for 4 yr., do not like anything about it! I sure do like yours

    • Allison September 26, 2018 at 10:39 pm #

      I have a few quilts like that too…its always the holiday-ish quilts that I fall out of love with! Thank you for visiting!

    Love that dotty background! It’s on my bucket list … which keeps getting longer and longer and loooonger! And also, Wal-Mart pickup is a total game changer! In my neighborhood, Costco and the grocery stores deliver or do pickups too!

    • Allison September 27, 2018 at 1:12 pm #

      Oh I should check if our Costco delivers! I bet they do! I do love roaming around Costco though….not so much Walmart. ;)

    I love this pattern and am quilting it right now. It’s going to be a gift, so I’m going to have to piece another one for myself.

    I have had and LOVED the pattern for a year (or two?) I have not made the whole quilt, but have made several runners of three pumpkins each and a few table squares. Recently I have made some runners with pumpkins made from 1inch (finished) squares. I have always used cream blender backgrounds…I guess I never liked the how the oranges I have went with gray. I really liked your black dots and tried one after seeing your previous post. Good Job! /Users/owner/Desktop/IMG_1508.jpg

      I just emailed you back Mary….they are both fantastic!! Thank you for sharing them with me!!

    LOVE THIS QUILT AS I LOVE ALL OF YOUR QUILTS! I’m thinking these pumpkins can be turned into apples, a tribute to this go-picking apples season here in New England. I plan to make one of each and thank you for your sharing. If you think having a middle school kid is a yikes, wait until you sent him off to college, then wait until he marries. More to come my sweet, enjoy every minute with your kids while you can for soon enough (and time moves fast) they won’t be living in your household.

    • Allison September 28, 2018 at 2:37 pm #

      Apples would be darling! These would make great apples…especially the mini pumpkins pattern. Also yes…time is a thief and it’s so sad!

    Just finished mine! I hand quilted jack o o lantern faces on the pumpkins. It’s so cute!!

    Love the quilts! I have just discovered podcasts; they definitely make chain piecing, pressing, & quilting more enjoyable. Which ones would you recommend? So far Uncover: Escaping NXIVM, and In the Dark, season 1, have been excellent.

    • Allison October 3, 2018 at 12:47 pm #

      Great suggestions! With podcasts I usually listen to self-help inspiring ones…like Soul Conversations (the Oprah one), Rise, Lore (scary!), How I made that. I don’t listen to that many podcasts but I love them when I do!

    What a great quilt! I like the white background but it’s almost an off white because of the polkadots. I think these would also make fun individual cushions.

    • Allison October 3, 2018 at 12:46 pm #

      Thank you! The background is a cream color…I like the cream with the orange!

    This is awesome! I’m just a novice. But I was just thinking for the ones with the horizontal strips…. if you add a little triangle at the bottom and make the top strip a darker color (or the top lighter and the rest darker) you could turn the pumpkins into acorns! Well, I’m sure you could do it with any of them but those were the easiest to visualize and explain. :)

    • Allison October 7, 2018 at 4:43 pm #

      That would be cute! I’ve seen a cute acorn pattern floating around online.

    Just found this on Pinterest & realized I bought that pattern (but 23 1/2″ x 29″) on a quilt tour (with fabric) several years ago but never started it. I’m about to start it now & have read the directions. Is it possible to make the pumpkin with all the little squares to strip piece instead of piecing all the little squares? I’d love those instructions which should be easy but I’m not a creator. Thanks.
