Good morning, Friends — it’s check-in #5 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 (or equivalent F8s).
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.
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 8 blocks completed.
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, 5 weeks into the sewalong. I hope you have enjoyed making your pumpple blocks! I don’t think I will get much done on my pumpple blocks for next week, but I will still check in with you next Wednesday, regardless.
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!
