Just a couple blocks left!! Are you going to miss this project? Because I sure have missed having these little blocks to sew after they were done.
The Patchwork Pumpkin block was well-named because it had a lot of little pieces to put together! I did manage to amass a lot of orange squares and set about arranging them:
When I went to add the stem and leaf section, I couldn't help but notice that it was quite a bit shorter. (I didn't mark the 1/4" seam on all the squares and I guess my seam ran a little narrow. So the block ended up noticeably bigger than the others.)
I found a scrap of the background fabric that would do nicely:
I have to say that this circle of orange with its pattern of light and dark squares makes me very happy!
Here are all the blocks in a virtual layout:
Here is Kim's pumpkin:
These may be the two most similar blocks we have! It's hard to vary a big block of orange, but I'm sure if I posted the two of them without labeling them, you would still be able to pick which went in whose quilt!
