Next, sew short yellow strip to top of block. Then add long yellow strips to each side of block. Finally, add rust strip (the ground) to bottom of block.

Sew blocks in the same manner. Once you have all five pumpkin blocks assembled, add brown border pieces to sides of each block so all five blocks are now 18" wide.

Attach blocks together by sewing brown 4" x 18 1/2" strips between blocks and to top and bottom of runner.

Once all blocks are sewn together, embellish with rick rack and other trim to add mouths and stems to each pumpkin. Top stitch rick rack as desired around eyes and nose.

To finish quilt, assemble batting and backing under quilt top. Baste or pin together and quilt in desired pattern. Finally bind all layers together.
