Patchwork Pumpkin quilt tutorial

Last year I found a pieced patchwork pumpkin that I'd made a few years ago and finally turned it into a Halloween throw-pillow.

This year I decided to take the same motif and turn it into a bigger project and made this simple pumpkin table runner.
I'm sharing a tutorial of how I made the patchwork pumpkin block and table runner today over at the Riley Blake blog. It's not too late to whip one out for your own fall decor. It's really quick - I promise!

  4. This pumpkin looks like something I might be able to do. I took a look at the pumpkin pillow post also. Did you use a pillow form for that? Thanks for the tutorial :-)

  11. Very cute Amy, Your fabric choices are perfect. Love the contrast with the dark black background next to the bright orange.
