Scrappy Pumpkin Hotpad

I used some orange scraps, and a tiny bit of green, to improv this little pumpkin.  The solid is Connecting Threads Latte.  Kind of a greigey color.  I like these solids.  They're pretty soft and also inexpensive.

I quilted it with random lines, and in hindsight, I don't like it.  It's too harsh or something.  Oh well!  It'll be used just the same.  I'd like to make another one, and a leaf version, to package up with a cookie cutter and a fall baking mix to give as a little gift.  I'll quilt them in a more calm manner of course!

Some Denyse Schmidt for Fabric Traditions on the back.  I replenished this print (I only had a small piece) and bought 10 other half yards from Joann's the other day.  They were on clearance, plus the red tagged stuff was an additional 50% off.  So the half yards were only $1.50 each.  And then I had a $5 of $25 coupon.  I purchased a new blade for my left-handed Gingher rotary cutter on sale (and some other things) to round out my purchase.  Super good deal!

  1. Super cute Kristan! Love it. Very festive.

  2. So cute. When I saw Meaghan's pumpkin I wanted to make one too! Just haven't had the time. :) I do like your quilting, and I bet it will look great all washed up and crinkly!

  3. This is just darling! I've seen so many cute scrappy pumpkins popping up everywhere, and I really want to make one too!

  4. gotta love those great deals at joanns. it hurt me to see DS in the red tag section, although I got mine 30% off at least! never again... muahahaha!

    oh and your pumpkin looks lovely. although i agree about the quilting. live and learn!

  5. I'm from Canada - we visited family this past Thanksgiving weekend and I got to make a run down to the Joanns in Watertown, NY - I got 4 yards of DS (2 different prints) for $3/yard - happy Thanksgiving to my fabric stash!

    Your pumpkin is adorable - I saw it in the Sew Modern Monday linky and came over for a peek. That straight line quilting you did really adds the perfect touch - I love how you echo'd the lines of the scraps, and that backing - YUM!

  6. Cute, cute, cute!
    I love Joanns for the discounts and coupons. Makes my shopping that much happier!

  7. What a great pumpkin hotpad! I love everything about it, especially the quilting.

  8. Cute block and I like the quilting you did! Great buys!
