Embroider Pumpkins with Style

Embroider Pumpkins with Style

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Combine in-the-hoop machine quilting with coordinating embroidery designs for your next fall-themed quilting project. As I turned the calendar to October, this fall-themed embroidery design pack by Amazing Designs came to mind. The embroidery bundle includes 26 designs for 4″ x 4″ hoops and 14 designs for 5″ x 7″ hoops. The possibilities for Creative Quilting Outlines…Pumpkins with Style are endless.

.

See how easy it is to use your embroidery machine for in-the-hoop quilting designs with these favorite fall projects.

Appliqué Accents

Adding color to your embroidery design couldn’t be easier with the five appliqué options in this design bundle.

  • Align the fabric and selected design in the hoop.
  • Back fabric with your favorite stabilizer.
  • Stitch the outline shape.
  • Trim away any excess fabric beyond the stitching line.
  • Finish the edges with the beautifully digitized embroidery stitches.

Perfect Machine Quilting In-The-Hoop

Get the look of a complex accurate quilting design using the computer guide feature of your embroidery machine. That’s right; you can quilt your next project in-the-hoop.
  • Layer the quilt: backing, batting, and quilt top.
  • Use spray adhesive to secure the layers.
  • Align the area to be quilted in the hoop, matching horizontal and vertical register marks.
  • Select the outline, or should I say quilt design, and stitch.

I rarely just stitch one embroidery design on a project. Rather, I like two or three of the same motif for the design. This set allows me to mix and match many autumn motifs to create an interesting finished design.

Potpourri of Fall Projects

With designs for different sized hoops, we have options as to how big or small we’d like to stitch. The hoop will give you control over the larger sized projects, making quilts quite easily.


You can mix embroidery designs flawlessly with the quilting motif, as the two are designed to complement each other.

Consider repeating one single design on a mantle scarf.

Three similar fall wall hangings make quite a statement with colorful detailing in each embroidered and quilted stitch.

You can even dress up the entire table this holiday season with a table runner and placemats.

This table runner features the embroidery designs on a 6-1/2″ center or focus block, which then gets a border (3-1/2″ on each side) and is set on point. The blocks are not complicated and you’ll be able to create them in any size.

The coordinating placemats are equally easy to create by simply adding the fall embroidery designs to 6-1/2″ blocks, which will be sewn into a basic 9-patch quilt block and also set on point.

    I really like your pumpkin design set. Not only can you stitch out the pumpkins, but you can use the swirls and redwork for quilting.

    I love machine embroidery, after 20 years I’ll still stitch anything that fits under my presser foot. This set would be perfect for tablecloths, napkins, placemats, pot holders, towels and hot pad holders. I can think of enough projects to keep me busy until turkey bird day.

    I love anything to do in fall colors, pumpkins, leaves, scarecrows and I think it is because I love all the colors of fall, the oranges, yellows, browns. I love to embroidery pumpkins and the fall leaves adding a few scarecrows on the side and before getting an embroidery machine I did many appliqued wall hangings for fall. Now with the embroidery machine there are endless ways to create the pumpkins and fall decorations so much easier.

    I love to Embroidery and Quilt. I am planning on making large table cloth for each of my daughter-in-laws and myself as we have large tables, but I like a table cloth with a little thickness and will add thin batting and backing and make it fit their tables. Then pot holders with applique and thin-sulate to bring the hot platters and bowls to the table and put them on the potholders on the table. Table-Runners for the buffets they have to go the full length and again potholder to place underneath the hot dishes. This way the table is clear of a lot of food and can easily be reached for seconds and thirds. Dishtowels with embroidery and applique for the after dinner dishes and aprons to protect our clothes as we cook and clean up. I love these designs and my creative mind flourishes with all kinds of ideas for the Holidays. Happy Holidays everyone from Cheyenne Wyoming.
