Autumn Love Sew Along - Crow and Pumpkin Block
Welcome to the Autumn Love Throwback Sew Along with Happy Little Stitch Shop!
TODAY is the DAY!! Today we are kicking off our Autumn Love Throwback Sew Along with the Crow and Pumpkin Block! Are you excited?!
Each year we try to host a Lori Holt throwback sew along and I KNEW Autumn Love had to be on the list. The tricky part was that the Autumn Love fabric collection has been discontinued - building a kit had to start from scratch. After MUCH encouragement from my Happy Little Stitcher community, we did it! We made the kit with substitute fabrics, we have all the information from Lori and we are ready to dive in!
To refresh your memory, this is the Autumn Love quilt that we are making...
The very first things to do in your Autumn Love preparation is to get our Autumn Love Quilt Kit. You can find it HERE.
Next, go back and read Lori's Bee Prepared post. You can find it HERE.
You will also need the Autumn Love Sew Along Guide which Lori links in her post, but just in case you missed it you can find it HERE.
I also have an updated schedule for you. Remember, everyone should sew at their own pace and ENOY making this lovely quilt, but if you are a schedule person...here you go...this is the schedule we will be following.
You can find all the fabric substitution information in my first blog post HERE.
NOW...are you ready to jump into Week One?! Let's GO!!!
Crow and Pumpkin Block
First things first...here is a little teaser from Lori's blog post for Week One...
Lori provided a blog post for Week One AND a video with Riley Blake Designs. I will link them both for you.

And now...here are some photos of my block using the Autumn Love kit curated by Happy Little Stitch Shop (me). 😁
I have to say...I am kind of psyched about how this block turned out...
I just love pumpkins!
Now...HERE is a link to my YouTube video for our Crow and Pumpkin block. This video was made to assist you with the fabric substitutions. PLEASE NOTE! This video was shot a few weeks ago and since then I have received feedback and requests from you on what you would like to see in these videos. This first video is pretty basic and focuses on fabric substitutions. The second video was also already started before receiving feedback requesting more direction. This video will include slightly more than the first. The third video for Week Three will be much more detailed.
Look at that cute little crow!
Oh my GOODNESS! I love this quilt! First block is complete and I am in 🧡 already!
I can't stop smiling at it! 😁
I am making two quilts - one from the original kit and the other from our recolored Happy Little Stitch Shop kit. I thought this would be helpful to you for fabric substitutions and fabric placement. We will see if I can keep up with two blocks each week! 😅
Ready for appliqué!
I hope you enjoyed making your Crow and Pumpkin block as much as I did! This is SO MUCH FUN!!
I will see you right back here for the Wagon block next week! That cute little red wagon is calling my name already!
Leave me a comment below and let me know how your Crow and Pumpkin block is coming along!
Happy stitching, my friends! 🤗
