Who doesn't love Fall? Crisp apple cider, warm pumpkin spice cookies, hot cocoa, flannel shirts, and warm cozy fires? Leaves, pumpkins and all that stuff... As the holidays start to draw near, you might be looking for a festive little project to get you in the mood! Here are a few of my favorite fall-inspired quick-sew projects. I have done a specific blog showing the process for each of these, you can click on the link in each description to check out that blog.
How about a cute and festive project to learn fusible machine applique? There are many different ways to applique, I am not an expert at all of them, but I thought I would share one of the easier ones!
Gather all your yellow, orange, white and black scrap bits together and make some low-calorie candy corn from them. It’s amazing what you can do with 2½” triangles! I seriously can’t throw anything away, and I had a bunch of little black and white triangles laying around. I added a few oranges and yellows and ta-da!
I made good use of these orange and brownish scraps to make scrappy little pumpkins, just in case you too have a pile of scraps and a little Fall weather sewing time.
Here’s an easy little table runner that’ll be perfect to set the candy bowl on this season. Or, just make one block for a table center! I made this one with the Creative Grids 60-degree diamond mini ruler, but you can do these same cuts with the original ruler as well!
My calendar for the year is drawing to a close, but I still have a few more classes left to teach. If you've been looking for an in-person class, I'll be teaching in Waite Park, MN. I'll be doing a Lecture/Trunk Show on November 4th at 6:30 pm, and teaching workshops on Mi Amor Baby Quilt/Table Runner, on November 5th, and Champagne & Pearls on November 6th.
If you're in the Greater Seattle area, I'll be teaching the Gilded Christmas Tree Skirt pattern at Quilting Mayhem in Snohomish, WA on November 19th.
If you've purchased the Gilded Christmas Tree Skirt pattern, and you want to join the Gilded Christmas Tree Skirt Quilt Along on Facebook, it starts November 15th and runs through November 29th. (Admission is FREE with pattern purchase.)
