Gingham Pumpkin Quilt – Finished

Happy Halloween!

I finished my custom quilt order today. My customer wanted a pumpkin quilt to use as a coverlet on her guest bed, matching pillow and topper for a round table.

The complete gift —

Quilted Gingham Pumpkin Gift Set

The gingham pumpkin quilt measures 46 x 60 inches. I used Luxe Fleece for the backing fabric. The feel of this heavy weight fleece is soft and thick so no batting was necessary. I did use a Schmetz Microtex 100/16 needle for quilting.

Pillow – 14 inch scrappy log cabin block with pumpkin applique using the same pumpkin fabric as the quilt. I added binding to the pillow.

Topper – I used scraps to make the hexagon topper – perfect for left over jelly rolls strips . Starting with a 6 inch equilateral triangle, I added 2.5 inch wide strips in 10 inches (round 1), 12 inches (round 2) and 14 inches (round 3) to the bottom of the triangle. After each round I trimmed the strip keeping the same angle as the triangle. I made 6 sets then arranged in the hexagon shape, and sewed them together. The topper measures 28 inches across at the widest point.
