Finale Craft: Making Quilted Pumpkins

On this year’s finale, we made quilted pumpkins!

You can listen to the step-by-step instructions on the finale show audio below, but here are some pictures to help you along your way.

Audio for Season Finale, #176 Halloween Special

Gather your items:

  • 1 styrofoam pumpkin
  • Bunch o’ straight pins
  • At least 126 fabric squares, 3×3 inch, alternating colors – one of them being green. They should be ironed into triangles
  • Thimble
  • Stitch gauge (or a ruler and piece of cardstock to measure the stitches)
  • An iron

CREATE!

If you quilt them properly, all the ends should be down and hidden. However, “punking” the design is also encouraged, like this last picture where E.M. Markoff went for a more artsy, rough-around-the-egdes look.
