Quilt Along Day 2

okay, here we go:

lets get all of the 8" x 5" pieces for the pumpkins and leaves and the 3.75" x 4" piece for the stems. Cut out enough wonder under (or other fusible web) for each piece.

next up, grab one piece of fabric and one piece of wonder under
and fuse together following manufacturer's instructions.
 Repeat until you have all of the pieces done:
Alright, cut out all of the pattern pieces and lay them out on top of the fabrics like so…
Grab a pen (I used a sharpie) and one of the pieces to start tracing:
Flip over the fabric and the pattern piece
Trace and label
Repeat with all of the pieces until it looks something like this:

Next start cutting all of the pieces out
When you are done lay them out and you should have 3 pumpkins, 7 leaves, and 3 stems
Get your main panel… iron it out and grab the piece labeled A2, peel the backing off of the piece….
 Put the piece in the center of the main panel about 5 1/2" up from the bottom
 Iron piece down, then repeat attach the stem(A4)
Apply the rest of the pieces in this order: A1, A3 (completes first pumpkin), B3, B2, B1, B4 (completes second pumpkin on the left), C1, C2, C3, and C4 completes the third pumpkin on the right).

Next, add your leaves…
That's all we need to do to the front panel for today… I thought we would also but the backing together.
Start by chain pieceing (all seam allowances 1/4")  A to B, B to C, C to D, press seams to one side. Then attach to the bottom part of the panel (18" x 9") to the pieced strip with piece D on the right side. Press seam to one side. Attach the top part of the panel (18" x  7 1/2") to the remaining long edge of the pieced strip, press seam to one side. You will have something that looks like this:
 Alright stay tuned for day 3 tomorrow.
Feel free to jump in anytime if you haven't started already… see tomorrow have a goodnight….
