Default Autumn garland banner and wood quilt

Finished putting together my autumn garland banner. I'm really pleased with how it all turned out. Each acorn is slightly different. I decided not to quilt them, but may eventually quilt them. I attached a little light strip to a piece of jute and then attached the acorns with teeny tiny clothespins. I'm thinking I'll make similar patchwork pieces for each season and change them out (thoughts on shapes to make for each season or month? I would love to have some creative ideas).

I also wanted to share my wood quilt (I didn't make it), I finally got it on the wall! We moved in, in April, but we are still working on so many projects here, but I'm excited things are starting to go up to make it feel more like home

Thanks for looking

​Very cute! I think a series of snowflake blocks would be nice and could go up for all winter.

I love the acorns. They are cute. I have an idea bouncing around for a series of 12 mug rugs with a theme for each month. You’re welcome to my list for your garland.
January - snowflake
February - heart
March - shamrock
April - Umbrella
May - flowers
June - summer/sun
July - Flag/Red, White & Blue
August - beach
September - Apple
October - Halloween
November - Turkey/Cornucopia
December - Christmas

Your autumn banner looks great & that wooden quilt is so pretty on your beautiful, light colored wooden cabin walls. MicheleC came up with a good banner list for you. Looking forward to seeing what you do as time goes by.

Very pretty, looking very homey. The acorns fit nicely in your wood setting.

It is the touches like that, that make a house a home! I love the idea to change the garland with the seasons.
