Good morning, Friends — it’s check-in #3 for #pumppleSAL today! I have enjoyed seeing pictures of #pumppleSAL on Instagram. Do check them out if you haven’t.
“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!
Click HERE if you want to use the fabrics used to make the original quilt (shown on the magazine cover). They are from Moda’s Late October line.
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.

For today’s assignment, we are supposed to make another (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.
I am using a mix of Windham Fabrics’ Rowan and Darling fabrics. I wasn’t able to get the main floral in Rowan’s line, so I brought in a couple of florals from a couple of Windham’s older lines that are already in my stash. And I have got my 20 pumpkin units done!

The foyer in my house doubles as my design wall. Because the corners of my pumpple block are to be scrappy, I first made my pumpkin/apple units and laid them on the floor. I auditioned the placement of the fabrics that would be used for the corners. I then pinned the corner fabrics so that I could make sure the fabrics were nicely distributed throughout the entire quilt layout. Once I was sure no fabrics were right next to each other, I sewed the corner pieces to the pumpkin units.
And that is it! We will meet up again next Wednesday – it’s time turn the pumpple units into finished blocks!!
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!
8/10 – Make (10) pumpkin or apple units, (9) if you are keeping your test block.
—> WE ARE HERE! 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!
