New pattern: Pumpkin Run

Can a person have too many pumpkin quilts? Surely the answer is no.  Because if the answer is yes, then I’m in big trouble. If you can relate to my predicament, then I’m happy to share my latest pattern with you: Pumpkin Run!

This cute runner finishes at 34 1/2” long by 12 1/2” wide. It’s so quick and fun, you could probably whip one together in a day. The fabric requirements are minimal. You might have everything you need to get started, right there in your stash!

Materials

Orange A (pumpkins and small squares)………………………………………… 1/4 yard

Orange B (star corners)………………………………………………………………. 1/4 yard

Black A (stars)…………………………………………………………………………… 1/3 yard

Black B (sashings)………………………………………………………………………. 1/4 yard

Neutral……………………………………………………………………………………. 1/3 yard

Pumpkin Stumps……………………………………………………………………….. 5” square

Backing……………………………………………………………………………………. 5/8 yard

Binding…………………………………………………………………………………….. 1/3 yard

My sample quilt features fabrics from a few different Moda designers. Both oranges are from Fig Tree & Company. The black, neutral and binding are from Midnight Magic II by April Rosenthal. The black sashing is from Low Volume Wovens by Jen Kingwell.

I designed Pumpkin Run to be a vertical runner, so it could be displayed on a quilt ladder or a skinny wall spot. (Don’t we all have those pesky skinny wall spots?) But you could rotate the pumpkin blocks clockwise if you would like, and make a horizontal runner for your table!

I’m so pleased with the quilting on this little project. When I told Katy of Woods Edge Quilting that I would like a motif that was “linear, simple but interesting,” she knew just what I meant! She suggested a motif called Keryn’s Chevrons, and it was the perfect choice for Pumpkin Run!

Pumpkin Run is available on my Etsy Shop in PDF format. If you make this runner, please be sure to share on Instagram (use the hashtag #pumpkinrunpattern) and also tag me (@taunjalynn). I would love to see your creations!

Thanks for stopping by, quilting friends.

  1. I love love this pattern! Actually I love all your fall patterns! Thanks for telling us the fabric you used!!

  2. Taunja-Will this pattern ever be in paper form? I love your patterns and work at a quilt fabric store. I have used them to make store samples and we sell the patterns. We use to be able to order your pattern Picking Petals in paper but now we can’t get it and we’ve had people ask for it. Do you have any suggestions on how we can do this? People just don’t want to do the PDF. Thanks for any suggestions!

    1. Hello Lynn. Thank you for your interest and you question. Several factors have lead me to offering mostly just retail PDF. It was a very difficult decision, but one that is best for my business. Please email me directly and we can discuss. Thank you!
