pumpkin patch pillow

In my last post I was saying I was not really into seasonal sewing and you know what? It apparently is not true.


Because, as soon as I was finished with my maple leaf coasters I started working on this pumpkin patch pillow (it's 100% inspired by Karen's beautiful table runner).


I improv sewed my pumpkins and framed them with lots of low volume prints. Each pumpkin finished at around 5.5" or 6" tall - this pillow is huge (16" x 36").


I used fusible fleece to back the front of the pillow and did an uneven/ improv grid quilting all over.


I went with my usual zipper technique for pillow closure, and I even decided to use my long hoarded The Little Prince linen for the backing.


Here's a little detail. Adorable, isn't it?


I finished the pillow using 2.25" double fold binding - I so love this technique as it leaves me with absolutely no raw edges inside the pillow case.

How about you? Have you been doing any seasonal sewing? Do tell.

  21. What sweet little pumpkins! I'm thinking a mini quilt of improv pumpkins has to go on my list for next year. I enjoy holiday sewing, I made some little houses (like Kajsa Wikman's) for Halloween http://catsinthecupboard.blogspot.com/2014/10/haunted-houses.html I'm now making some for Christmas, 30 of them, because clearly I am some kind of crazy ;)
