“A Pumpkin A Day” is my original quilt featured on the cover of Quilter’s World Autumn 2022 issue. This is a scrap friendly quilt — or you can easily use a FQ bundle that has a minimum of 15 FQs.
And then a bunch of us decided to sew this quilt together!

I cannot stress enough – my sewalong schedule is NEVER set in stone. You can sew at your own pace. My schedule serves only as a guide, mainly to make sure I complete my quilt.
I am making my sewalong quilt using a mix of Rowan and Darling fabrics by Windham Fabrics. That way, my quilt can be used for the fall, and way into winter because the pumpkins will also double as apples.

For today’s assignment, we are supposed to make (10) pumpkin units. I went ahead and attached the corner triangle units. That way, I will have less to do when I work on completing the blocks in a couple of weeks.
Here are my pumpkin units!
We will be making another 10 pumpkin units for check-in #3 next Wednesday. Keep in mind, it’s your quilt — and you don’t have to make all 20 blocks. The following shows a table topper version where you only have to make (9) blocks.
And that is it! We will meet up again next Wednesday – hopefully I would have my (20) pumpkin units done!
Here is a quick glance at the schedule:
8/3 – Do a test block from start to finish! With a block that has many pieces, I always make a block from start to finish. That way, I am able to work out pressing directions and other details. Doing this will make construction of your subsequent blocks go so much faster. You may decide to keep this book, or not, toward the 20 blocks we will be making!
—> WE ARE HERE! 8/10 – Make (10) pumpkin or apple units, (9) if you are keeping your test block.
8/17 – Make another (10) pumpkin or apple units.
8/24, 8/31, 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28 – Complete (3) or (4) blocks each week until you have made (20).
10/4 – Assemble quilt top, and you will have a quilt for the FALL and/or BEYOND!
