Every year, I talk about making a Halloween quilt. And every year, I spend the fall months working on anything and everything but a Halloween project. This year, I've got a quilt done and hanging on the wall with a few weeks to spare.
Want to make your own little pumpkin wall quilt? It's easy!
You'll need 1/4 yard of orange for the pumpkins (add a little extra if you're using a different die or pumpkin pattern), 1/8 yard of yellow to light up their faces, 3/4 yard black or dark grey print for the blocks and binding, and a yard of tan for the background and blocks.
You'll need to make nine pumpkin blocks as shown in the video (place your pumpkins on point on 6 1/2" background squares.) The sixteen nine-patch blocks are strip pieced from 2 1/2" strips -- or assembled from individually cut 2 1/2" squares, whichever technique you prefer.
For the twelve side setting triangles, cut three 9 3/4" squares twice on the diagonal as shown -
For the four corner setting triangles, cut two 5 1/8" triangles in half as shown -
Lay out the quilt blocks as shown in the photo and assemble in diagonal rows -
