Autumn Tree Wallhanging

Now that I am embracing Autumn, I can show you one of my favourite makes of this year!


Autumn Tree Wallhanging (Pretty Patches Oct16 issues)
This is 'Autumn Tree', an applique wallhanging measuring 27" x 30", which I will definitely be displaying in my home.

I adore the warm autumnal purples and pinks in Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee range, especially on a Kona Bone background.  In fact, the leaf shapes are the by-product of the Sizzix Drunkard's Path Fan die!!  I always keep these shapely leftovers, and was so pleased to be able to turn some of them into a seasonal project.

Useful tip:  Quilt your background first before appliquing on the shapes.  This means you don't have those head-scratching moments when trying to decide how to quilt around the shapes.



Satin stitch is my favourite applique technique, and I think it suits the clean lines of the leaves and trunk.

The pattern for this wallhanging is in the October issue of Pretty Patches Magazine.

And maybe one day I will make Spring, Summer & Winter/Christmas versions to hang up with each changing season!!

Hope you are off to a great Autumn!
