Happy Sweet Day!
Hope that you are having a wonderful week so far and are enjoying the last of these summery days! Thank you for all your sweet comments on my hexie flower!
Well, the vintage maple leaf quilt is finished, and I am so happy with how it turned out! It is a smaller quilt, but perfect for hanging or to throw on the couch for a little fall touch. I had originally planned to hand quilt, but decided on machine quilting diagonal lines to keep it simple, and to save all my hand quilting energy for my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. :)
For the back I used two vintage peachy-orange calico prints, which I love how pretty those colors are together with the dark binding.
Since these blocks were vintage and different sizes, I did my best not to cut off the tips of the leaves, which did happen on some, but that's okay it makes it more vintagey! ;)
And, for the binding I had this acorn polka dot reproduction print that I have been wanting to use since last fall, so it was the perfect touch for the quilt!
A sweet quilt ready to bring some fall into my home and maybe keep my legs cozy on those cool fall nights!
I was in the maple leaf mood, so I decided to start my fall decorating with these pretty floral maple leaf coasters.
I choose some fall-ish floral prints and used a cream felt for the backing.
I used some wool crewel yarn that I recently bought and did a blanket stitch around the edging to help make the leaves pop a little, and I just love how sweet they look with the stitching.
I was even thinking these would be cute to just decorate as doilies or in a fall wreath. I'm excited that I have two fall projects marked off the list!
Thank you for making these coasters sell out so quickly! I will be restocking some more early next week and I am always happy to do custom orders, so if you would like a set in your favorite fall colors or for me to remake one of these sets for you, just send me an email! ;)
Now back to my hexie flowers and 16-patch quilt blocks!!
Wishing you a beautiful and crafty week!!
