Seasonal quilting…and cats

Posted on: October 2, 2012

A couple weeks ago, the calendar said “autumn”, but our weather has not. Although, this week has been so very nice; Sunday we turned off the a/c and opened the windows.

I took down the summer-y wall hanging this past weekend, too, because I finished this cute autumn-ish leaf wall hanging. I found a maple leaf block pattern and enlarged it to be 1 big 36×36 inch block.

I quilted feathers in the brown/leaf sections and some big meandering in the light background.

I also quilted our names into the section where the leaf stem is. That’s “Lori” on top and “Al” on the bottom.

Then, I started on the Christmas wall hanging, so it will be done on time.

This picture is from the Bigfork Bay Cotton Company website. Isn’t it pretty? Hopefully, mine turns out like that – or a reasonable facsimile.

Here are some pictures of the process:

Trace the pieces on freezer paper

Iron Misty Fuse to the back of the fabric

Take picture of Rion in the fabric closet

Cut out a million little pieces while watching football on Sunday and “Castle” on Monday.

Make a chickadee.

Happy Autumn!
