5 Little Pumpkins - A Glorious Autumn Block Tutorial and Giveaway

Introducing . . . 5 Little Pumpkins - A story book block :)



So here is the story behind the block.  I was asked by Michelle of Quilting Gallery if I would like to  participate in the Glorious Autumn Block Party.  Of course!!!  I have so much fun creating new blocks!  And it helped that I knew instantly what I wanted to design.


Have you read this story before?  If not, you have probably sung it.  You know  . . . 5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate, the first one says, oh my it's getting late, the second one says . . . and so forth though all the pumpkins.   Well my kids love it!! And  I thought, hey, I bet the kids would love a cute little pillow (which my block will be soon) that they could remove pumpkins from as we chant the story together.


And so I drew it up, sewed it up, and now just have to turn it into a pillow.

But for today . . . Let''s show you how to make your own 5 Little Pumpkins Block!

You Will Need:

(2) Orange 10" x 10" Squares  (or large orange scraps)
(1) Blue 8 1/2" x 12 1/2" Rectangle
(4) Yellow 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" Rectangles
(1) Yellow 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" Strip
(3) Green 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" Rectangles
(2) Green 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" Rectangles
Scrap batting pieces
5 black buttons


STEP 1 - MAKING THE BACKGROUND

Start by laying your 4 yellow rectangles and 5 green rectangles out as follows with the small green rectangles at the beginning and end of the row.  Place the yellow rectangles on the green rectangles with right sides together and sew a 1/4" seam along the aligned edge.  Press.  Finish sewing the row together by placing the second pieced set onto the first pieced set with right sides together and sewing a 1/4" seam along the aligned edge.  Press.  Continue adding the third, fourth, and then 5 piece.


Now layout the blue rectangle, yellow strip, and pieced strip  as follows.


Sew the three rows together using the same method employed to piece the strip together.   The background to your block is now complete and can be set aside for the moment.


STEP 2 - MAKING THE PUMPKINS

Print out the following template.  Just save the image to your computer and then add it to a word file.  You will want to size your fabric template to about 3 1/2" x 4".  You can also choose to just make your own pumpkin template or just free hand your pumpkins making them each unique.

Trace the pumpkin template onto your orange fabric.  Trace 5 template pieces with the template right side up and 5 template pieces with the template right side down.  I use a water soluble pen to do this but you can just use a regular pen.  Cut your 10 pumpkins out.


Now trace 5 pumpkins onto scrap batting using the batting template.  If you want your pumpkins super puffy then double up your batting.  Cut out the batting pumpkins.


Lay a right side up and a right side down fabric pumpkin together with right sides facing each other.  Then place a batting pumpkin on top.  Stitch a 1/4" seam around the entire edge of the pumpkin leaving a gap in the side.  Remember to back stitch at the start and finish.  Turn your pumpkin right side out through the hole. Use a pencil or pointed tool to push the edges out.  Press.  Fold the raw edges under and pin.  Sitch a 1/8" seam around the entire pumpkin closing the hole.  Repeat to make 5 pumpkins.


Now to make the pumpkins removable.  Stitch a button hole into the center of all 5 pumpkins using the buttonhole foot for your machine.  If you machine doesn't have a buttonhole foot (yes, I used to have one like this) you can make a buttonhole using a zig-zag stitch.  It is a bit of a pain but works :)


STEP 3 - ATTACHING THE PUMPKINS

Lay your pumpkins onto your background fabric and move them around until you get them placed in a manner pleasing to you.  Using a marking pin, mark through the center of the buttonhole onto the background block.


Now simply stitch a button onto each of the 5 markings.  I just use a zig-zag stitch with my feed dogs down to sew on my buttons.


Now, just button your pumpkins onto your block!!


And when you read the story, your kids can take the pumpkins off and roll them away!!



I hope you enjoy the tutorial and enjoy your own 5 Little Pumpkins Block!!  If you make a block, I would love to see it!!  You can add it to my Inspired by Happy Quilting Flickr group or email it to me :)  You can also add it to the Glorious Autumn Block Party Flickr Group :) 

Now for some extra fun tidbits that go along with the Glorious Autumn Block Party!!!


First, As part of the Block Party, Michelle has written up a little Designer Profile on me.  Just some quirky and fun facts about me and my quilting.  You can go the the Quilting Gallery Blog to read more about it :)

Second, with each new block in the party there is also a Super Quilter's Deal at the Quilting Gallery for your to take advantage of.  So check that out as well :)

Third, To see all of the amazing blocks in the party so far just visit the Glorious Autumn Block Party Headquarters!!!  There are some stunning blocks there!!!

And Finally, Fourth!!!   What would a Block Party be without a GIVEAWAY!!

Leah from Burgundy Buttons has graciously offered to sponsor this giveaway.  So a huge thanks goes out to her for providing the prize!!!

  144. One thing I am thankful for this week is that I am nine years cancer free. Nine years ago I had a scare that lasted for a year of being really sick. And the other thing I am thankful for is that my youngest son is still here. He had an acute pancreas at the age of sixteen and almost died three times between then and the age of 21. He had three major surgeries and spent most of high school in the hospital. Now he is 29 and married with two beautiful children that mean the world to me. Life is good and I can't be more thankful to be here and spend time with my four grandchildren two girls and two boys.
