For those of you just joining in, this is our Halloween Quilt Along. This pattern was designed by Kim of Kimberbell Designs. She has wonderful instructions and lots of pictures. You will enjoy this pattern. Quilt kits are available in our shop! You will need to purchase your own personal pattern for the dimensions and specific instructions.
This quilt pattern will boost your quilting and sewing skills! I highly recommend it!
Today I am working on part 6 of the quilt - the pumpkin patch block. This is a great applique practice!
Lots of pictures so I will keep the commentary to a minimum.
Prepare applique pumpkins using the same method as in week 2 (Link click here if you need it) REMEMBER to peel off the paper backing of the fusible web before figuring out placement. I forgot and had to redo the placement - just when I had it perfect too. At least I remembered before pressing!
Pressed in place. As you can see they overlap just a smidge. Don't you love the houndstooth print?
Up close shot. This project has been great practice for me!raised the needle, switched to a straight stitch, and back-stitched two stitches since the end pumpkin does not have an overlap to hide or secure the end stitches.
Oh, last but not least. I wasn't sure what to do with the stems. The pattern said to straight stitch them in place so I followed the edges and I have a little triangle in each one!
Please send us pictures when you are finished. Some are coming in now! We will post them soon.
