Hello, Friends — it’s check-in #8 for #pumppleSAL today! I have enjoyed seeing pictures of #pumppleSAL on Instagram. Do check them out if you haven’t. I hope you are still having fun pumppling along!
Complete details are HERE if you are just now finding out about the sewalong. Click HERE for check-in #1, HERE for check-in #2, HERE for check-in #3, HERE for check-in #4, HERE for check-in #5, HERE for check-in #6, HERE for check-in #7.
“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 (or equivalent F8s).
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.
Purchase the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue for the pattern HERE if you aren’t already a subscriber.
Today’s assignemnt is same as last week’s. We are completing the blocks, starting with 3-4 blocks a week for the next few weeks. To date, I have 13 blocks completed so far. I actually have to step it up this week and make quite a few 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. The pumpkin fabric you see below is from my stash – I don’t remember which fabric line it was from.
You may purchase Rowan Fabrics or a FQ Bundle HERE.
You may purchase Darling Fabrics HERE.
And here we are, 8 weeks into the sewalong. I hope you have enjoyed making your pumpple blocks! I am still on catch-up mode after being gone this past week.
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.
8/17 – Make another (10) pumpkin or apple units.
—> WE ARE HERE! 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!
