You may have to be a little adventurous and try some FMQ to create the stems! (Don’t panic…there are other options).

 These are pretty quick and easy and are constructed using your basic snowball block design.

Here is what you will need:

~Supplies~

Background fabric– 1 Fat Quarter. Cut (16) 1.5″ squares and (5) 6″ squares

Binding fabric– 1 Fat Quarter or a 1/4 yd cut of chosen fabric. Cut (4) 22″ x 2.5″ strips from FQ or (2) WOF x 2.5″ strips.

Pumpkins– 4 Fat Quarters in assorted oranges, you will not need very much so you can just use any orange scraps you have too. Cut (4) 6″ squares.

~What to Do~

Press your 1.5″ background squares in half to leave a crease diagonally across the square.

Pin these to each corner of your pumpkin square. Make sure they are right sides together.

Sew along the crease. No marking required! Just follow that creased line.

Trim off the corners to leave your 1/4″ seam. If your feeling sassy you can do 2 corners at a time:)

To finish up the topper you will sew the pumpkins and background squares together in a basic 9-patch design. Press your seams toward the background squares.

Layer up your quilt sandwich and have some fun with your thread to quilt on some crazy stems however you like. If you are not feeling comfortable with that, you can always applique on some or hand-stitch them…oooh that would be cute! Once you are done, just trim up your quilt sandwich and bind.
