Stashbuster #2 Turning Up Pumpkins

It is StashBUSTER Tuesday!   Once again, I've partnered up with some fabulous quilt designers for Quilt Block Mania!   I have a bunch to share today; new pattern that is launching, a new class, and a free Block download!


I adore this month's Stashbuster Quilt, Turning Up Pumpkins.  

Turning Up Pumpkins

You can make this fabulous quilt with stash, scraps, or new fabric.   The pumpkins are made with 10-11 Fat Quarters. I selected Moda's Fig Tree's All Hallow Eve and then supplemented with a few older Moda Fat Quarters.  The setting blocks are made with yardage; 1 yards darker gray and 1/2 yard lighter gray.  Add 2 yards Background and a fabulous border and you are all set!

This is the perfect Fall pattern design, you can use similar-in-color Fat Quarters to make up your Pumpkins (or even Apples) .  You could even go with Halloween theme fabric and make this more of a Halloween quilt.    You don't have to use gray for your setting, as black fabric or brown fabric would work great too!  Let your Border fabric determine what looks best. 

It features one tool, the Tucker Trimmer III.  While the smaller units can be made with the Tucker Trimmer I.  Of course, I always recommend the Quilter's Magic Wand

The quilt offers four settings, you could probably find even more.  One of the settings, setting 3, could resembles cats among the pumpkins.

So, fun!  You can order the Printed pattern, that will ship on September 8th at: BUY PRINTED PATTERN.  Or, you can download the PDF version of the pattern at: BUY PDF PATTERN

Or, you can sign up for the Turning Up Mini-Class and the PDF version of the pattern is included. Sign up for class: ONLINE CLASS REGISTRATION

Quilt Block Mania - NEW FREE BLOCK

Once again, I've team up with some fabulous Quilt Designers and together we'd put together some FREE themed quilt blocks to share with all of you!   
  • All of these blocks finish at 12″ x 12″. 
  • You can download all the Blocks for free, or just your favorites. 
This month theme is "Halloween", therefore I decided to make and share the my Turning Up Pumpkin Block.

Turning Up Pumpkin is made up of Combination Units and utilizes scraps of like colored fabric.   I've provided step-by-step instructions in my download.  It comes together easily with the help of the Studio 180 Design Tucker Trimmer I.   
  • All of the designers are using the same color plan in their Blocks.   
    • Therefore you could combine this quilt block with other designer blocks, in the series, and put them into a Sampler Quilt of your own design.
  • Or, several of the designers, including me, are offering patterns, for purchase, using our Block. We've done the math and they are really cute.😊

  • If you scroll all the way down you’ll find links to all the fabulous quilt blocks in this series.  We are hoping to do this a few times a year, so stay tuned!  When I can align Quilt Block Mania with my Stashbuster Series, I will.
