    Fall leaves wall hanging finished

    I got so many good suggestions from the QB when I asked for ideas for naming this wall hanging. It's for my daughter who lives in San Antonio and always wants me to send her photos of the fall leaves. So, after making a list of all the suggestions, and turning them this way and that...the final name is: Leaving Nashville. Hope you like the name and the wall hanging, too!

    Beautiful wall hanging. The fabric for your leaves and especially the tree are so real and life-like. Great job and thanks for sharing. Love the name you chose too.

    WOW those leaves really do look real! And I like the attic window style - really does look like your looking out of a window. Great job!

    Gorgeous! Great fabric selection. I'm sure it will be enjoyed by your daughter, and I'm sure it will be a wonderful reminder of fall colors and leaves.
