Our final row will be sewn this week, and it is a favorite block from years past. Ready for the next one? I hope you have some orange fabrics in your stash for #AutumnJubilee2020! Resending this post as the link for rafflecopter was missing.
Yes, you probably guessed it. It just isn’t Autumn Jubilee without pumpkins! Mine are orange, but gold would work too, plus if you are doing a dark background, white pumpkins would be fun.
24 scrappy pumpkin color strips 2-1/2-inches x 10-1/2-inches
16 background squares 3-inches
8 background strips 2-1/2-inches x 5-1/2-inches
4 squares 2-1/2-inches for the stem
Sew the strips together in sets of six. Make four.
On the backside of all 16 background 3-inch squares, mark diagonal lines from one corner to the opposite diagonal corner. On each strip set, place a 3-inch background square on each of the four corners, with the lines intersecting the sides, and sew just slightly to the outside of the line.
Flip the square over and press. Trim the excess to 1/4-inch seam allowance. Sew one background strip to opposite sides of the stem squares.
Sew the pumpkin unit to the stem unit.
Square up to 12-1/2-inches.
Sew your pumpkins in a row.
