Pumpkin fest with Island Batik and Accuquilt


I finished my project for Island Batik early this month!

For this project I used the Wedge die from accuquilt

and these lovely fall fabrics from Island Batik


I sewed them into a table topper


Then I got out my fall medley die and ironed heat n bond on the back of scraps and cut out two pumpkins and 4 acorns


And I got Marjorie’s embroidery designs for this set too and I merged both a pumpkin and two acorns on my machine.


I embroidered two sets on opposite sides and off set to the side


Then I free motion quilted it in a variegated thread, I had fun adding bubbles, leaves and feathers all over it.



I used a fun stitch for adding binding


The table topper looks great on my table (sorry it’s a cell phone pic)


here’s a close up of the embroidery and quilting


Meanwhile my little helper was SO helpful and pulled my batiks off of the shelves and re-sorted them


and Swiffer is having fun with the kids and misc. boxes


Sonja pulled him around in this box and he actually purred


Meanwhile the weather is getting cooler and it’s so beautiful at night when going for a walk!

Cute project, did you make 2 different ones or is it just the cell phone that made it look pinkish?

Great shape for the project. It adds so much interest. Pretty colors. Adding some type of applique is such a finishing touch.
