scrappy pumpkins

It's one of my most favorite times of the year & a few weeks ago I got a serious case of the "fall crafting bug"!! =) I just HAD to sew something Autumny!
That's when I saw a friend on IG making these adorable little pumpkin blocks & I just new what I had to make!! In a few hours I'd whipped up a bunch of these little pumpkins, using mostly scraps & bits of leftover fabrics.














After all the blocks were made I just sewed a strip in between each one & ended up with a runner almost 6ft. in length! And Boy, is it hard to photograph something this long! Any tips you could share with me?


 I decided I wanted a more natural & organic type of quilting so I went with this organic line. I am really happy with how it turned out & love the modern movement it brings to the runner!
 
 
 
I had the perfect basic orange dot for the binding & what better print for the back than Lizzy Houses candy corn?! you might find this hard to believe, but candy corn is definitely not a favorite fall candy of mine. I'm a chocolate girl all the way!! lol=)

 



I think this Heather Ross wildflower pumpkin has to be one of my favorites! Its just so cute & chubby. 


I'd love to see yours if you make some of these! They are just so easy & satisfying!
 
Happy fall Sewing!! xxKaren
