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
- Stitch gauge (or a ruler and piece of cardstock to measure the stitches)
- An iron
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.
