Harvest QAL - Apples & Pumpkins (Week 2)

Happy dance - week 2 of the Harvest QAL!

Have all your background fabric cut and ready for week 2?  If not, no problem.  You'll have an incentive now because you'll want to make these cute pumpkin and apple units!

(Note - the apple unit in the photo actually has an error.  See that strip of fabric to the right of the 3rd apple?  It was supposed to be to the left of the first apple!  No worries - it will work either way but if you follow the instructions, your unit will be slightly different.)

These apple and pumpkin blocks are a lot of fun to make.  Both blocks use the same technique to 'round' or 'snowball' the corners.   The instructions are clear but if you need a bit more of a photo tutorial on this technique, check out my Block 101 - Snowball post.

Over 100 people (and still growing) have downloaded the week 1 cutting instructions.  I'd love for that number to continue to increase so help me spread the word!

Post your progress on your blog and please grab the button!  Then come join the linky party below!

Post your progress on Facebook on the Elm Street Quilts Facebook page!  (I just started this Facebook page and it is looking lonely with no likes and no visitor posts so please go show it some quilting love!)

But first you'll need the instructions to make some apples and pumpkins - instructions available from my Craftsy store.

Don't want to wait for the blocks each week?  The full pattern is available in my Craftsy store as well for a small fee.


Have a wonderful day! Patty

  2. Marian at Seams to Be Sew posted about this lovely QAL so I followed her link and here I am :) I'm in the process of packing up my England Fun room (sewing room) in preparation for returning home to Canada, but have your button on my blog and the first two weeks saved and will catch up on the other side of the pond.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
