Pumpkin Blog hop table topper

Button for November smaller

Hi everyone,

it’s my day to share a pumpkin project!

Thanks to Carla for hosting this blog hop!!

I wasn’t sure what I was going to make, but I knew I wanted to use the pumpkin from the Accuquilt Fall Medley die!

Then I looked at my “to be quilted” list and realized I had made a small runner/ table topper from leftover 12 1/2” strips from the log cabin quilt I recently made and where I added off white between, that top would be perfect!

I took it out and busted out some more orange batiks from Island batik! and cut out 2 pumpkins!


I raw edge appliqued it in brown, easy peasy!

Then I laid it on the batting and cut out another orange piece and right sides together I stitched around the edge and left an opening, then turned it right side out and top stitched AND I used some of my fancy stitching on my Janome and quilted it.


Super simple and easy!


I’ve made other pumpkin projects in the past!

Here’s a set of potholders where I used the same pumpkin die!

So you can tell I like that pumpkin die Winking smile

Really like what you've done with that die. I always look at their dies and try and figure out what all I could do with them where all of the items I try look different. You did that and more.

Carla said...
