Hexagon Pumpkin Quilt Tutorial

Share the love!

It’s time for another seasonal Hexagon Quilt!  These are small {fat quarter in size}, and are great for a quick and easy sewing project.   Because we are hitting pumpkin season — I thought a little pumpkin patch of hexagons was needed.

I chose fabrics that were in the nuetral realm, but I really could see this sewn up in some crazy fall colored fabrics too.  You just want to make sure that the fabric you pick for the hexagons that make up the pumpkin will stand out when placed on the background quilt.  I’m thinking that I should have mixed it up a little more with the pumpkin fabric too….sometimes I can be so boring!

Hexagon Quilt Tutorial:

Supplies Needed:

  • 13 Printed Hexagon Templates on Cardstock- I went with the larger 1 1/2″ size
  • Orange fabric scraps- pumpkin
  • Brown wool felt- stump
  • Green wool felt- leaf
  • Brown embroidery floss


Like always with these small fat quarter quilts, you will need to refer to the basic quilt tutorial.  This is the background / quilt top for this project.  If you need help sewing up those hexagons, don’t forget to reference this hexagon tutorial.

Cut out 13 fabric hexagons, using the templates in the orange fabric scraps.

Lay them out and decide what shape you would like your pumpkin to be.  If you decide to go bigger, sew more hexi’s. Smaller, take some out.  Feel free to lay them out and move them around until you are happy.

Stitch the hexagons together in the shape you decide on.

Pin the pumpkin shape on the top of your finished fat quarter quilt top.  Applique the hexagons by hand or by machine.


Cut out a trunk shape with your brown wool felt.  Applique it in place.

For the leaf, I stitched right down the center with a running stitch. The edges are not sewn down at all.

Hand embroidery with a chain stitch a little curly-cue.

Bind your fat quarter hexagon quilt.
