2013 NewFO Challenge - October Update

I ran across a picture of Tumbling Leaves that I really liked.  It reminded me of all the colors of the hardwoods back east in the fall.  I'd like to make a wall hanging to hang above our love seat.


I found the pattern for it in allpeoplequilt, however, I didn't follow the pattern because I planned on using fabric from my stash, that was already cut into strips I wanted to use.  So I started to work on the leaves.



I put them all together and added a narrow inner border, but haven't decided on a border just yet.


While trying to decide what fabric to use for the border on my leaves wall hanging, I decided to finish up the work on the tote bag designed by Gudrun Erla of G.E. Designs, that I had started last month.


It turned out a bit bigger than I thought it would, but I really like it how it turned out with the Riley Blake Snug as a Bug fabric.  I'll be able to stop carrying multiple bags when I go out!   Visit Barbara over at Cat Patches and see what others have started this month.  Happy quilting everyone!

  5. That bag will surely hold LOTS of fabric! Could be dangerous!

  6. I think your Tumbling Leaves turned out great. I never get to follow directions because of using scraps. Takes a little longer but I like scrappy!

  9. I love how you saw a wall hanging you liked and then you figured out the pattern and used your stash to make one yourself. It looks wonderful, the leaves really look as though they are tumbling. Your bag worked out so well. Great colours!! Bigger is better than smaller, you'll know you can fit everything inside!
