A Pumpkin "Snowman" Wall Hanging


Fall is such a lovely season to decorate for.  The long hot days of summer are cooling down and ones thoughts turn to nesting for the winter.  Making ones home cozy and comfy.  I thought a good way to do this would be to make a new fall wall hanging.  I have not made one in simply ages.  I bought Jan Patek's book "We Gather Together" last fall.  The season slipped away from me and I did not make a single one of the simply divine little quilts.  I pulled it out again this year and fell in love with this guy.

 He is hand appliquéd.  I usually do a machine blanket stitch on wall hangings.  I have to say, I am so proud of doing the appliqués by hand.
 After quilting this on my domestic machine, I riffled through my collection of fall buttons for embellishments.
 The backing is an ancient piece of fabric from my stash with corn on it.  Fitted in really well with the fall theme.
Are you working on a special new fall decoration?  Have fun with it and thank you so much for visiting.

  5. I can see why you were smitten with this fellow - a lovely wee quilt...and yaay for the hand applique! We don't tend to decorate for the seasons here (except for Christmas!) but I see it would be a good excuse to do more crafting :-)
