So on with the show , I did make a few projects to share so you just might want to grab a cuppa as this might get a little picture heavy. My first projects involved a process called Flower Pounding that I learned many years ago at a retreat ,I had the treated fabric in my stash for at least 10 years and decided this would be perfect to showcase some fall leaves .
My next project involved tracing off a leaf shape then dividing the leaf into sections and using some wonderful batiks that I won a short while back from Linda of Lindas Quilt mania ,actually the above borders are also from the bali pops from Linda , thanks so much Linda . I got the idea from a photo in Fons and Porter and the project was a web bonus by Laura Wasilowski called Autumn Leaves .
I appliqued the sections on with a satin stitch . I then made this into a pillow.
This is called Vase of Flowers by Lori Smith , also a Fons and Porter project .I decided to share this one as it has fall colors .
Finally I wanted a little table mat and this project is also from Fons and Porter Quilting Celebrations for Fall/winter 2011,it doesn't fit into the 10.5"or 12.5" size but it is called Autumn Leaves .
I hope you have enjoyed my little fall display and if you are a follower and would like to make a comment telling me what you like best about fall I will put your name in the hat for this small original flower pounded mug rug or whatever you would like to use it for .
