    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.

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

    I agree with all above. Your garland of patchwork acorns turned out so beautiful and perfect for your room. I'm thinking I could find a place for something similar. Thanks for your inspiration.

    Very festive! Your acorns turned out fantastic! Hmmm...other ideas for seasonal decorations or monthly decorations:

    Holiday seasons.. Christmas : presents, christmas trees, stockings), Valentines day: hearts, Easter: patchwork bunnies, Halloween: Pumpkins, St. Patrick's Day: shamrocks.

    Oh...this turned out so neat!!! Love the look. The wood piece is stunning. Both feel warm and cozy...

    My first thought for Christmas was to make ball ornament garland. Would be fun to creat different designs on each ornament... That's my 2 cents..

    Great job, they make those tiny lights with the clothespins already attached. Christmas trees with small glittering ornmanents between, would make those tiny lights sparkle.

    Thank you everyone for the compliments and ideas! This was my gift quilting project in about 2 years, so it was good to get me going again. I have some big quilts that have been put away for years that I need to pull back out and get started on again.

    Thanks again

    There are many free hot pad patterns out there on the web that would make cute garlands. Cute acorns and good idea for displaying them.
