I hope you’ll be able to follow how this (no pattern) Fall wallhanging evolved.
I wanted to make a fall wallhanging so I thought I make a quilt lasagna quilt will bright fall colors. Here’s how it turned out.
Oh my… it is a bit “in-your-face” and in bright light I may even blind you.
Sooooooooo….. after looking at it for a few days, I decided that I really hated it. Now… how can I make something that I like that is not so in your face. Deconstruction seemed like the best option.
I cut up some of the rows and make 3 quilt squares.
Here is one of the resulting squares.
I thought I’d place 3 of these squares off center and then the rest of the quilt would be white (to give it that modern negative space look). Step 4: After staring at that for a number of days I decided that perhaps I’d applique some fall leaves on it to give it some more interest. Looking better but still not there yet.
Step 5: Finally I added a scottie puppy in a pile of appliqued leave trying to catch the falling ones. Ok… I admit it, I am scottie obsessed. Here is the final look of my “Scottie Fall Wallhanging Quilt”.
I really hope you can see my quilting. I’m rather proud of my free motion quilting on this piece.
