Gorgeous Patchwork Pumpkins for Every Taste!

Looking for something to do with those autumn fabrics? Pumpkins are a popular subject for fall quilts and we have 12 great patterns for you to choose from. Whether you prefer to sew your autumn themed fabrics into patchwork pumpkins, applique them or stuff your creations, you’re sure to find something you like in this collection.

You’ll find quilted table runners, mug rugs, wall quilts and pincushions. All go together quickly, allowing you to make several for your autumn decor. They make great gifts, too!

Many of these patterns can easily be adapted. For example, a table runner pattern can be turned into placemats or a mini quilt by adding or deleting blocks, or by changing how they’re laid out. Let your creativity guide you into making something that is uniquely yours.

Be sure to visit the second page to see all the pumpkin quilt projects!


Scrappy Pumpkin Table Runner

This fusible applique table runner from Therm-O-Web can easily be made into a wall quilt. Just put one pumpkin in the center with great borders, or stitch together 4 blocks of pumpkins made up in slightly differing colors (with or without borders). If you’re short on time, skip the machine stitching and frame a pumpkin square instead.
