    Can anyone suggest some online sites that have some fall wall hanging quilt patterns? I've looked around with a Google search and found a few, but nothing that really struck me. I'd prefer something that is fall (not Halloween) so that it could stay up through November as well. Any input appreciated!

    Hi Eddie,

    You might try checking out the quilting magazines online. They usually have seasonal quilts in them.

    Good luck,

    Pam

    I had the best luck with Lynette Jensen's Thiimbleberries books. Lots of fall patterns, most of them are applique.

    Thanks for all the great input, everyone. You all are such a great bunch to share your ideas. A couple of members (thank you, CRH and Bebe!) sent me a link to the following pattern which is the one I think I am going to go with. I really like the look of it and can only hope mine comes close to looking like theirs. :)

    Great choice, Eddie. I just wanted to show you one I made last fall. It is posted on my web site and called Autum Leaves. It is done with a technique called discharge. Just scroll down on the page. I made it with 3 different borders.

    Eddie, Fall is my favorite time of year and I have 2 famovite quilts I've made commemorating my favorite season. The first one is from a book called Tradition with a Twist. It kind of looks like an oriental rug from a distance but it is all made with 9 patch blocks. My other favorite came from a quilting magazine a few years ago. It is simple to put together but really looks great. Here I have it on point as a table topper.

    I really like those leaves, Maria. Are they applique?

    Yes Eddie, I made the templates with template plastic and covered the areas I wanted to protect. Spray a bleach solution over the black fabric and wait for the color to discharge. Whe you achieve the color you want dip in water to rinse the bleach and in a peroxide solution to stop the blech reaction. Hang to dry. I used the same templates to cut out the leaves out of the fall color fabrics and applique on top of the discharge, with the protected areas showing a little as a shadow. You can applique them on with either a satin stitch or a blanket stitch with a stabilizer on the back. It is actually a lot easier than it sounds. I recommend to test a sammple of the fabric, because not every fabric discharge the same. I did mine with batiks.

    I am glad you like them. Thanks,

    Maria

    Excellent. That's cool about the bleach, I would never have thought of that. That's something else I need to try. :)
