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?
