Pumpkin Table Topper

"Pumpkin on my Patch" is the second of my designs published in the Autumn 2017 issue of Quilter's World magazine. This time I used bright, shiny, warm Fall fabrics from the Falling for You screenprint collection by Hoffman Fabrics. Its prints are ideal for October/November holidays so you can keep this table topper on your table for many weeks.

It measures 48" x 48" and uses 2 blocks. The stem was machine appliqued using blanket stitch. Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting did a fantastic job quilting it with fall leaves, berries, and orange thread.

The vibrant colors of the quilt top are complemented by the rich green/gold of the backing. Yes, perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

If you have a large enough wall, it would also double as a wall hanger. Although I have an eclectic taste on fabrics, I lean towards the bright colors...

You can find Quilter's World magazine on the web, quilt stores, bookstores, and supermarkets (in Utah, they are sold at Barnes & Noble, Jo-Ann stores, and supermarkets).

Yep, I am all set for Fall with this table topper and the Autumn Trails quilt I showed you on my previous post. This issue of Quilter's World has 14 beautiful projects. Enjoy!

Before I go: Fat Quarter Shop has an amazing giveaway:

Check out their blog to enter it - I am heading over there right now! I have been sewing with my Bernina for 12 years and love it. This is your chance to get your own.

Have a great weekend,


  1. Very nice - love the autumn colours and while I don't celebrate those two big days I can appreciate the loveliness of it.

  2. Congrat on being ready for fall :) Beautiful piece and love the quilting
