Since I've started doing a little Fall decorating around the house (Monday is the first day of Autumn) I thought it would be fun to share my favorite fall quilts for today's favorites post. My absolute favorite fall quilt is one I did about ten years ago using scraps. It was one of my first attempts at machine applique using fusible material along with a buttonhole stitch.
I had it custom quilted by my friend Andrea who just brought the quilt to life. I always hang it in my front entryway from September until Thanksgiving!
I also have several smaller fall quilts that I love to decorate with. The "Happy Harvest" mini and the turkey pillow are Debbie Mumm projects from when I was a new quilter. The fall leaves topper was a gift from my grandmother many years ago...I love getting it out each year.
I also have quite a few pumpkin pillows embellished with buttons and decorative stitches. These are also from back when I first started quilting!
My own fall leaves wall hanging is a favorite. My grandmother had one just like this, and I could hardly wait to make my own. I think she gifted me some of the fabrics from her stash to make this. I also think these might have been the first half-square triangles I made...
I always wonder about when to get out the Halloween fall stuff...is September too early for this? My favorite Halloween quilt also has been beautifully brought to life by Andrea and uses lots of scrappy Halloween prints from my stash. This is another quilt I made about ten years ago.
I love the stripe for the socks, and I love the scrappy checkerboard!
I love the stars, the potion bottle, the bats, and the cat, too!
And finally...here is my favorite Halloween table runner (pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson). Back when I first started blogging I made about twenty of these runners one fall...many were gifted to family and friends, but I did keep a few for me! And the fabric basket (pattern by Pink Penguin) is perfect for storing Halloween treats!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
