Quilting and finishing tips

  • For a cohesive look, all pumpkin stems, leaves, hearts and the cornerstone hearts are the same.
  • Use an accurate ¼” seam allowance throughout to ensure all elements of the quilt fit together well.
  • The quick-pieced triangle-squares method works for any size triangle-square. Cut squares the finished size of triangle-squares plus 7/8″.
