|Pumpkin Patch Mug Rug Pattern|
Hooray – this is the week that I finally get to share my Glorious Autumn block with you. Becky at Patchwork Posse and Eleanor of Quilt in a Day have blazed the trail this week over at the Quilting Gallery so make sure you pay them a visit. Find out what makes the Patchsmith’s tick whilst you are there by reading my profile and make sure you check out the Quilter’s Super deal – there is a different one for each block release.
But today is my turn and I would like to introduce you to the Spinning Pumpkin Block.The Spinning Pumpkin Block fulfils my three requirements for this block – it is functional, it is quick and easy to put together and it is suitable for beginners and experienced quilters alike. Also the pumpkins spin around the block so it can be viewed from any angle – isn’t that versatile?
I have included a PDF download of the block construction and also included with it a free Patchsmith pattern to turn three of these blocks into a lovely, colourful table runner. Feel free to download this pattern for personal use only. However, this pattern is not to be distributed or sold, neither can items made from it be sold without the Patchsmith’s permission. Don’t forget to add your photos to the Glorious Autumn Flickr group when made so we can all get a good look at them - we are a nosey lot here at Patchsmith Palace!
If time doesn’t allow for you to make the table runner just now then why not make the Pumpkin Patch mug rug from my Etsy Store. This super little mug rug takes just a couple of hours to put together and there is plenty of room on it for a cup-of-tea and a pumpkin muffin. In fact, if you batch make it (a bit like pumpkin muffins) then you should be able to make one for you and one to give away in a single afternoon.
All Patchsmith patterns are priced so that everybody can afford them so join the Patchsmith and create a cosy look for your home this autumn. So be sure to check out my Etsy pattern store for more seasonal mug rugs.
What a beautiful block! Thank you so much for sharing. It will make a great table topper. Love how you turned the pumpkins.ReplyDelete
What a great story about your grandpa. I think you should call your kind spider after him.
Love your pumpkins! Thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete
How about calling your spider Boris??
Wow, what an awesome free pattern! And I like that it is a PDF file, with such clear instructions!! It makes such a pretty fall pumpkin wall hanging!ReplyDelete
I had to look up one of your words...doppelganger!! I am learning some good English words from you!
I will be looking at your directions tomorrow to see exactly what the ‘long triangle’ patched unit is... that has me curious. :)
Charlotte is a great name for a spider - she was a lovely one!ReplyDelete
Your mug rug is beautiful, as is your pumpkin block. YAY for fall - my favourite season!
totally love the spinning pumpkin block. Thanks for sharing. Your mug rugs are adorable. You spider looks like a happy fellow, so how about happy jack?ReplyDelete
Love your pumpkins! Absolutely perfect for autumn!!! Morris, yes, your spider looks like a Morris to me! Thanks for the opportunity to win your lovely giveaway!ReplyDelete
I never kill spiders! We have loads in our house as it's 130 years old, I either put them outside gently, or leave them there! I'd call your spider Heinrich.ReplyDelete
In reality neither do I Wendy. We actually have two protected species here in England. I have a spider catcher which enables me to catch them and pop them outside.Delete
So just to reassure everybody ........ NO SPIDERS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS BLOG.
But you would know about spiders in England - coming from up north!Delete
What does a spider catcher look like?Delete
How about Miss Muffett after the nursery poem.ReplyDelete

Your block is lovely, I look forward to making it.ReplyDelete
Your spider looks a very happy spider, I would name her Gloria....:)
We had a spider who lived in our hallway for a long time, our grandchildren love him and called him Redips, Spider...spelt backwards.
Your block is darling -- thank you for generously sharing your pattern and instructions!! Pumpkins are a definite fall favorite of mine! Spiders? Not so much. After a bite from a brown recluse landed me in the hospital for a week and left me with a not-so-pretty souvenir on my leg, I'm more than a little fearful of them! Luckily I do know the difference between harmful spiders and good/helpful spiders! :)ReplyDelete
Ah but this little eight-legged friend wouldn't bite anybody so you will be quite safe here.Delete
I just love your Autumn block. Very cute and you are so talented. I am just a little afraid of spiders but my black cat will just love this mug rug. I think these mug rugs are just perfect. Thank you for the chance to win your goodie pack. Just in time for fall quilting. Good choice to make someone happy.ReplyDelete
Great block! Thanks. When I was in my 20s over 40 years ago spiders were a problem for me as well. I was really sick with the flu, home alone and was sure the jumping black spider with a white spot on his back was trying to kill me. My neighbor wasn't home to come and kill him for me, so I vacuumed him up and through the vacuum out on the porch. I can kill them now....grin.ReplyDelete
That spider sounds scarey - you did the right thing. If it was me I would've had to buy a new hoover though just in case the spider came back to get revenge!!Delete
thanks for the wonderful giveawayReplyDelete

Sweet pumpkins and your spider. Makes for a great mini quilt. Thank you for sharing..Judith, TexasReplyDelete
Thanks for the spinning pumpkin pattern. Your spider is either very big or the pumpkins are rather small. I would call him Icky. Fabric spiders are fine but the real ones creep me out.ReplyDelete
I love all your pumpkins. Your block is lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us. That little spider looks like a Fred to me!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the adorable pumpkin block pattern. I will definately be giving this a go. I found your pumpkin mug rug pattern so easy to follow and was really pleased how it turned out. I think "Arry Achnid" is a good name for this smiley spider.ReplyDelete
thanks for the patterns.
Your patterns are adorable and the spiders are cute even though I think real ones are a little creepy. I know what you mean about walking into a spiderweb in the morning it really creeps me out. I think you should name the spider Shelob.ReplyDelete
Your Autumn Pumpkin wallhanging is adorable. I think you should name the spider Hairy (Henry if you want to be formal.ReplyDelete
My suggestion is Legsy.ReplyDelete
I think your spider shoud be called HoraceReplyDelete
Love the spider!!!! And of course your block:)ReplyDelete
I would name her Inky because she's black:)
How cute is that spider!!! I'd call it Spinnaker Spider if it were mine. Don't know why that name popped into my head, but there it is. You need to find the cupcake holders from JoAnn's Fabrics to go with your mug rug. One of my ladies made the cutest pincushion using one of those cupcake holders. They have a round center where the cupcake (or pincushion) sits and eight legs to raise it off the table. They're too cute to be scary.ReplyDelete
Me and spiders don't get on but I think your spider looks like a Bertie to me :-)ReplyDelete
Great block - love your designs.
Oops wrong email address best change it - you never know I might win (fingers crossed)Delete

Just finished making your block.......it was a joy to make and will be added to the lap quilt I am making for my granddaughters.
On flickr - ColourinStitch.
It's raining here on the South Coast.....
Your blocks looks spectacular. I love it. I too am on the South Coast amidst the rain.Delete
Your blocks and runners are so fun! I love the pumpkin mug rug probably most of all. The giveaway items and fabric are gorgeous. Thank you for participating in the blog tour. I'm off to make some pumpkins :-)ReplyDelete
What a great designer you are and thank you for creating a lovely block. I am excited to try this and would love your gorgeous selection for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
Love the pumpkins! They would brighten any fall table or wall or make several and have a pumpkin patch on the back of the sofa!ReplyDelete
Oh, the spider.... terrible fear but I would definitely not smash this cutie. For some reason the name "Harry" came to mind. Most spiders in the deserts of AZ tend to be a little on the furry side.
Keep 'em coming.... Now off to 'follow' your blog :-)
Your blocks and runners are just wonderful.Thanks for the cute pumpkind pattern.What about spy me!ReplyDelete
Have a fun weekeknd!
I would name the spider "Dingle" because she is dingle dangling right in front of us. Thanks for a nice showing and the giveaway.ReplyDelete
La verdad es que no me gustan mucho las arañas, pero esta es muy alegre y me daría gusto tenerla en mi pared junto a las calabazas para no perderla de vista!!!ReplyDelete

Thanks for the pumpkin block. It is getting me in the autumn mood. I love your spider mug rug too. I think he looks like a Harry, Happy Harry the spider.ReplyDelete
Love your pumpkins! Thanks for the opportunity to win a giveaway.. firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
Oh, I love, love, your pumpkin banner and the little Spider Mug Rug is adorable! I wouldn't mind putting my cup of tea on it because it would bring me so much joy just looking at it everyday!ReplyDelete
Hope I am lucky!
Hugs and thanks for having this Give-Away!
Love your pumpkin patterns. Fall is such a magical season and the colors you used in your work capture the joy of the season.ReplyDelete
Cute mug rug. I detest most spiders, but this one is cute. I would call him Bobby.ReplyDelete

Cute spider! His mouth looks like the moon so I would call him Moony.ReplyDelete
Oh My! I love this blog! The ideas you just gave me! I have 4 grandsons. I think I am going to make them trick or treat bags for Halloween and applique spiders and pumpkins on them! Thank you!!!ReplyDelete
OOPS I'm too excited with your designs - I forgot to offer a name for your friendly spider. It looks like a He to me and George comes to mind - Happy George? I like it!Delete
I am terrified of spiders too and actually in our house they are not even known by their full name but go by the abbreviation 'sp', even the word sounds scarey to me! You are so lucky to have a local fabric shop too, I have to drive a coiupl eof hours to get to anything at all. I am not sure what to call your 'sp 'how about Sputnick the spider.ReplyDelete
This is definitely not a scary spider, he/she needs a cheerful name. I suggest Jenny Spinny.ReplyDelete
How about Silks for a name and what super creative patterns (the best yet) but don't tell anyone I said so OK.ReplyDelete
