Fall Festival in Pumpkin Patch




Pumpkin Patch is a great collection that is shipping to stores now! It looks like several shops will have it including Sew Yeah Quilting in Las Vegas, NV and All About Quilting in Jacksonville, NC. You might even find it at Hancock's of Paducah.

As part of this collection’s featured design, I created Fall Festival. I had tested this pattern a year ago and called it Pumpkin Patch, so when this particular collection was issued, I knew I wanted to be able to feature the fabrics in this design and renamed the pattern.


 


This is a multi-block design – a Sunflower; Leaves; Acorns and Pumpkins.

Start off simple with the center sunflower, leaves could be scrappy or controlled,  Leaves, acorns and pumpkins have some parts that are paper pieced.

This pattern is available for PDF download on Craftsy or my website, including hard copy purchase with or without printed foundations at www.kissedquilts.com.

Free on-line tutorials will be presented as part of a closed Facebook group. You will be invited, upon purchase of pattern.

Would you like to do this as an on-line class? Indicate in the comments below and I’ll be sure to notify you when this will start. Pick up the pattern now so you'll be ready to go!

  1. First I love your pumpkins. I would just as soon have the whole pattern at once. I can print it myself, no big deal nut those BOM's not my thing.

  4. This is such a pretty fall quilt. I would be interested in a quiltalong. I think I'd prefer 1 copy, making copies as needed. Thanks!

  5. Beautiful quilt! I don't mind printing my own copies for a quilt. That way I can make extras in case I have trouble with the pattern.

  7. I have a question about which pins are best to use when sewing with batiks. My daughter bought me a beautiful jelly roll of batiks for Christmas and I love sewing with them, but my pins seem to leave small holes in the batik fabrics. Any suggestions would be great appreciated. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

    1. I like using very thin pins, but in general I find if I dab a previous pin prick or needle prick where the thread has been removed, with a bit of water, the threads relax and go back to their original state.

  12. What a fun fall quilt! Making my own copy of a pattern is better. If misplaced, no spending hours looking for it, just print another.

  13. What a nice quilt. I am on the fence about a BOM. I kind of prefer my own pattern, and my own speed, which might be a couple years form now. :) Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. I'm certain that Island Batiks just loves you; you are a prolific quilter. Besides, the projects are gorgeous. I am not interested in a class at this time; I'm way too committed this year. If I were going to join, I would want just one copy that I could make copies of.

  17. I love your quilt - and it's awesome how the quilting makes the piecing look curved when it's not!

  18. Your quilt is just delightful! It turned out lovely with those beautiful batiks. Thanks for sharing the giveaway. I always like video tutorials. They are the most helpful to me. I would probably prefer to print my own paper piecing pattern.

  19. Always interested in a quilt-a-long with video tutorials and Q&A opportunities! I would prefer just a copy for you to make multiple copies of.

  20. I love QALs but I think I would prefer to print my own papers.

    Lovely Fall quilt. Pumpkins and leaves are my favorite Fall items.

  21. Your quilt sure does speak Autumn! Totally! Amazing!
    And to do it with the Island Batiks line, it's so impressive.
    Yes, I'd be interested in finding out the details of your QAL.
    I'm OK with printing my own PP foundations, so that would keep it a true online project.
    Thank you for showing us your quilt ... and offering the pattern as a giveaway.

  35. Beautiful quilt! I love everything “fall” so these colors and the pumpkins are perfect. Awesome job! I always find a tutorial, video or lots of pictures helpful when doing a SAL or following online. I don’t mind making my own copies of whatever is needed.
