I was messing around last fall and threw together a little fall top for a door hanger. It’s been hanging on my bulletin board, forgotten, until now. I’m glad I remembered it before winter!
I had just finished quilting something on the long arm and had enough backing and batting leftover to quilt this. The top fabrics are all hand dyes.
I used the AccuQuilt Classic Alphabet die to make the letters. I freehand cut the pumpkin parts. The appliqué is all raw edge and fused. The HSTs finish at 2 inches.
Rather than stitch the edges of the appliqué, I just matchstick quilted the whole thing.
I added a little rod pocket on the back for a hanging dowel. I used my regular 2 1/2” strips for binding, but a smaller seam allowance in the front so it wouldn’t be so overwhelming. That meant pulling it farther in on the back.
I left the dowel a little long, thinking I’d add something to the ends. I might just trim it shorter and call it done.
This piece finished at 6 1/2 by 34 inches.
Have a great day!
