Early in my childhood, the official carving of a Jack O’Lantern became a fun night for the family. Each year we would plan out our design, determine where to place it on the porch, and hope the candle would burn bright. But it was not until years later while working at The Children’s Place did I realize how serious folks were about their pumpkins.

Each year we would have a friendly competition among the design team. The level of talent was beyond breathtaking. Folks poured their heart and souls into these pumpkins. From painting to carving, it was all beyond amazing!

Now, I know the average family picks a special pumpkin or two to carve up for the porch but what if our pumpkins could live forever?

Fabric pull for the Jack O'lantern quilt block pattern.

Even though this block is easy to stitch, it’s important to understand that the 6″ block has a few smaller pieces. To help keep you on track, I put together a quick assembly video.

One of my biggest tips to help keep you on track while stitching this block is to work in rows. I like to lay everything out and line up my matching squares. Then I can just sit at the machine and sew without fear of mixing blocks up.
