Seasonal Fall Quilts

Here are several seasonal fall quilts that I completed a few

weeks ago.

Judy created this strippy quilt for the fall. I love the colors

in this quilt.

She also added some leaves on the outside border.

Fall leaves

Can you see the brown thread on the leaves? Judy wanted a panto

in the center of the quilt but wanted to quilt the leaves herself. No

problem. I basted the outer border and quilted in the panto as  I

rolled the quilt along.

What a beautiful color on the back. You can also see the design

of the panto as well.

Pieced backings are a favorite of mine but sometimes, if there are alot

of pieced blocks, it can cause the hopping foot to jump and move to

another area.  For the thread, I used a polyester orangey brown for the

top and the backing.

Jeanette made this fun quilt. I love the fabric in this as well; it

resembles a town or city and all that happens there.

I used a light brown SoFine thread on the top and the

backing.

“Splat” was the name of the panto that was used.

The backing shows off the quilting nicely.

I am in love with fabric postcards and this is one I received from

Judy Stupak.  Isn’t it adorable?

I have also been making some for the upcoming Christmas season.

The school bus represents September and back to school. The snowman

represents  November, although we haven’t seen any of the white stuff

yet.  And the ornaments are for Christmas.

I fused the ornaments onto the postcard; it was some fabric I picked up

at Lens Mills and thought it would work. The snowman is cut from a

panel I also bought at Fabricland a few years ago.

The school bus is actually inked onto a white piece of fabric and then

I cut it out after I had colored in the school bus.

It is alot of fun making these postcards and you can try out new

techniques without committing to a long time period.

If you want to join a fabric postcard exchange, check out Brandy at this

link and you can get signed up to make and receive one, or two, or three.

Make sure that you email her first and mention that you would like to

take part in the fabric postcard exchange. She will then email you and

confirm that you are registered. Have fun and enjoy!

Have a great week.
