Quilt Block Mania Pumpkin Quilt Block


Have you heard of Quilt Block Mania? If not, you're in for a treat! It's a monthly collaboration of an amazing group of quilt pattern designers where each one creates a new, FREE* (yes, FREE) pattern based on a monthly theme and color scheme. At the beginning of each month, each designer shares their block along with where you can find the rest of the blocks in the series. It's a wonderful opportunity for you to discover new designers and to try different techniques. Enjoy!

This month's theme is Food. For me, November equals pumpkins so I pulled out my graph paper and started sketching. I came up with this sweet, plump pumpkin and had such fun sewing it together. I think you'll love it too. It's beginner/intermediate friendly and gives more experienced quilters the chance to fine tune their piecing skills. The block measures 12.5"x12.5", unfinished. Each of the blocks in the series are the same size, so you can combine blocks to put together your own food-themed quilt or pick and choose your favorites. (scroll down for the list of designers and links to their patterns)

I used fabrics from the Ombre Fairy Dust collection by V & Co. from Moda to make my Pumpkin block. You can certainly use any fabrics that you have, but if you want to make your own with V & Co. Ombre fabrics, I put together a little Pumpkin Fabric Kit that you can buy separately. You can also choose your favorite ombre collection: Ombre Fairy Dust (my choice!), original Ombre, and Ombre Confetti.

I also put together a fabric bundle inspired by November's Quilt Block Mania color scheme. The colors are gorgeous and rich. Use it to make your own coordinating blocks from this month's designers, or for any upcoming project. You can use the same discount code to save 10% on this bundle. Enter the code PumpkinBlock at checkout.
