Default Leaves Wallhanging

I made this from a free pattern in an on-line magazine here.... https://quiltsocial.com/free-quiltso...now-available/ with leftovers from a tote bag. The only fabric I purchased for it was the black....funny I ran out of black!

I liked the pattern because it was different, used a lot of scraps and decorative stitches and I finished it by using a scrappy binding technique that another QB'er posted here last week and a decorative stitch around the binding, too. I did a different FMQ motif in each block.

Thanks for looking!

That is so cool. I struggle with how to use my fancy stitches on my quilting. Great example of what can be done.

Edited to Add: I don't know the size of these (yet), but it looks like they would make great fall placemats or add a few more leaf sections and make a table runner.

Well, it is table runner size already. I signed up for and downloaded the free magazine. It's got some good instructions for several different projects.

Barb, this is about 30" x 25", but you could adapt the pattern for sure to make placemats or whatever you wanted....

I love all the decorative stitches on your piece! I recently bought an old New Home model that has dozens of them. My other machines are vintage Kenmores and take cams. I have all the cams (lucky me!) but changing them out isn't as easy as turning a dial. : )

Your leaf wall hanging turned out so very, very pretty. I really like the enhancement of the decorative stitching. I also like how you staggered the leaf blocks & made them different sizes so they are not all in perfect rows. Very striking piece.
