It’s November already…time is really flying by. Halloween decorations need to be packed away and my outdoor and indoor decor need to take on a Thanksgiving theme. It’s still a great time to display all the fall bounty, but jack-o-lanterns are definitely out of the picture now and my outdoor sitting bench turns to a display bench.
For a fall look, I wrapped this large twig wreath with 12″ wide burlap strips. Read more on Seasons… Fall Foliage Wreath How-To.
Like many of you, I have more quilts than I can easily display fully laid out so I still pull them out for the appropriate season and find ways to at least enjoy all the color and prints and get a glimpse of the piecing involved. I used a charming antique ladder back chair and stacked numerous small quilts, runners and wall quilts displaying all the wonderful colors and prints. I walked by this chair dozens of times each day and enjoyed seeing them all grouped together each time.
I found this great basket with a large open weave. It’s a perfect place to roll up larger quilts. Not only are they handy if needed to ward off the chill in the air this time of the year, they are just plain great to see and use as a fall accessory.
This is also the time of year where those of us who quilt start to get a bit rushed. We are trying to get gifts made for Christmas and all the activities of the upcoming holidays are looming. Have you noticed, you seem to be responsible for the goodies and magic that happens at the time of the year. Bar Code Runner is a very quick runner that you can make in just a short time. It’s a “showy” runner using large pieces of wonderful autumn prints. Make it in many other fabric combinations to use throughout the year. This is a great scrap project. Just think of how many runners are waiting to happen in your sewing room right now. You could get many of these done before the holidays to shorten your shopping list.
