Patchwork Pumpkin Coaster or mugrug is a beginner friendly sewing project that can be easily made in a couple of hours. Coasters are the perfect way to add some seasonal fun to her home and are a good way to use your favourite fabric scraps. I had so much fun designing and creating this duo of patchwork pumpkins. They add a lovely pop of colour to your table.
Gather you favourite orange fabrics for this project. You need an assortment of orange prints that are dark, medium and light in value. I used a variety of small scale prints including ginghams, florals. and stripes. A brown stem and green fabric/felt leaf with wooden button, complete the project.
The patchwork block is constructed using the courthouse steps variation of the traditional log cabin block. The Patchwork Pumpkin Coaster is a great project to build skills in making basic patchwork blocks.
These Patchwork Pumpkin Coasters would be ideal for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or fall/autumn decorating.
