Perfect for a novice quilter or an experienced one. A great excuse for a walk in the wood – seek a few colorful leaves to use as templates then cut them from some interesting fabric with a suitable colored pattern. In this example, I appliqued them by hand using blanket stitch, then added a border and binding and simply quilted it around the leaves and around the edge of the lighter colored fabric shown. I added a handling sleeve to the back and as you can see, used an extra curtain rod to hang it.
Holiday cookie cutters make templates for a variety of themed wall hanging quilts, other ideas can be found in children’s coloring books. Look around you and have some fun!
