Autumn Wall Hanging

A few weeks after I started my very first quilt I knew I wanted to make a two-sided holiday wall hanging. One side for Thanksgiving would say "Thankful" and the other side for Christmas would say "Joyful." I even drew a sketch of what I wanted one side to look like, with pumpkins and acorns in the corners and a piano key border.


Having made a few quilts now, I've since rethought my idea of making it two-sided. It would limit my options for quilting it. Besides, I now have other ambitions for some Christmas holiday wall hangings.

Here is what my wall hanging looks like so far:


I tried making an acorn block but failed miserably so opted for all pumpkins. I still need to applique the wording. This will be my first applique attempt. The only thing I'm not sure about is if I should keep my original wording of "Thankful" or choose something else. Maybe "Fall is Here" or "Happy Fall?"  Suggestions, anyone?

  1. It really turns out great. It’s really beautiful. How long did it take you to make it? Have you considered the idea of writing Fall for you? That would be sweet and kind of double meaning.

    1. Oh, that would have been clever indeed! Overall, I think it took me about 2 weeks to make this but I have a little one at home and usually only have time to sew when he's napping or occasionally in the evening.
