{Free Block Pattern} Pumpkin Block - 3 Sizes (6', 8" & 10")

Halloween is almost here and if scary décor is not your thing, then you might like my super cute Pumpkin Block pattern. It's a free pattern and can be used for an array of fun projects!

Everyone's busy decorating and planning their Halloween celebrations, but we're keeping it low key and simple down here. I did make our grandson a pumpkin cushion for his bedroom, and I thought you guys might enjoy sewing the Pumpkin Block I used as well - it's super cute!

I found a paper pieced pumpkin pattern on EQ8, but it was a too boxy and basic, so I got to work and gave it a complete make over. The shape is more realistic shape now and I think the changes added a lot of cute character - I hope you like it!

The Pumpkin Block pattern is free for you to use for whatever project you like, and I've included three sizes in the PDF pattern (6", 8" and 10") so you have a few options to choose from.

I made the 8" block and added some cute little borders for Landon's pillow - he's too young to understand Halloween this year but he loves climbing all over it :) 

This is a foundation paper pieced block and it's pretty simple. There are a few smaller bits in the background but otherwise quite manageable for most quilters. If you're worried or this is your first time paper piecing, then I suggest you start with the 10" block and see how you go (I'm always here to help if you need it).

I didn't want a bright orange pumpkin, so I threw together some of my favorite gold/orange fabrics from Corey Yoders collections and I love how soft and sweet they are. I also want to make one for myself with a neutral pumpkin on a light grey background in the next few days. Have fun choosing fabrics for your own Pumpkin Block and try combinations that make you smile.

The Pumpkin Block PDF pattern includes full step by step instructions and diagrams for piecing the block, plus full-sized templates and a colouring sheet so you can plan your block prior to sewing.

I haven't included fabric requirements etc. because it varies between block sizes - just raid your scrap bins and create!

The Pumpkin Block PDF pattern is a free download and if you'd like to use it for a Halloween project or save it to your computer for later, simply click the link down below and grab the file:

All that's left to do is pick your favorite fabrics and start sewing your first block today. The blocks are quick so you should be able to make a batch in no time!

Use your completed blocks as cushion fronts, mini quilts, table runners, table toppers - whatever your heart desires, just have fun with it!

I hope you enjoy sewing my free Pumpkin Block pattern and let me know what you make with it. Have fun lovely!


Happy quilting :)
