Orange scraps make great pumpkins

I love it when I can use up some scraps/strings in my table runners.  I did not have to cut a single orange or gold from yardage to do these pumpkins.  The black of course came from yardage. In fact I have used up all of that fabric. 

The pumpkin blocks were started during our camping trip to Paducah in April.  Then they sat in a tote while I worked on other things after getting home. Yesterday I pulled them out and started in finishing them and before the day was done I had three flimsy runners done.  Ahhhhhhhh.

These were inspired from a pattern of a pumpkin quilt/wall hanging by Cottage Rose that I picked up last summer at the MN quilt show.  Here is my wall hanging that I did last year.  After making it I kept thinking this would made a great runner.  These are some really fun and quick blocks to make. I will be making a wall hanging also.  Now they can wait their turn for quilting;)

This is technically a UFO since it was started and then sat waiting to get finished.  So I will link to Tish's UFO party.   And since they were made using scraps I will link to Cynthia's Oh Scrap.  It's a rainy day here, I think I will go sew some more!

  1. Those table runners just glow with the black background fabric. Those sure will brighten some fall tables!

  8. Is it Halloween already? Where did the summer go? Oh no, it i just you, so far ahead from all of us, showing off as usual :-) And with pumpkins so juicy, I would too, no matter the season :-)

  12. Hi Vicki! These are SO darn cute, and sort of freebies of sorts. I think I might even like these better than the wall hanging . . . well, no but at least as much as. I am proud of you for getting these done early! Pumpkin spiced coffee comes out earlier and earlier each year - probably in July this year. HAHA! Happy Sunday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  13. Scrappy pumpkins are the best! The different fabrics give them the depth of real squashes :) And that mottled black background is great, so versatile! I'll bet you're kinda sorry to have used it all up. I know I always regret running out of a really good blender.

  15. I love the way those pumpkins just pop against that black background! Yay for UFO's! Oh wait maybe I shouldn't be cheering for UFO's as much as Yay for working on them :)
