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!
