    I have always made big quilts (full or larger), but I wanted to make a wall hanging from the fall fabric I just bought. I think I could like this. An hour or two and I have a quilt that is ready to pin and quilt. Let me know what you think and any suggestions of how to quilt it.
    I walked away for a second and look what happened. Love my cats.
    It's done. Any suggestions how to make the corners not look so pointy. maybe a shorter dowl.

    Help me with these pointy corners

    I am a fan of meandering also. I have done stitch in the ditch in the center, but the leaf or pumpkin sounds interesting for the borders. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm back to the sewing machine!!!

    Very nice - love the fall colors.

    I recently laid out a scrappy top on the floor (no place big enough) to make sure no same colors next to each other, etc. Told dd to make sure cats stayed in basement unless she was watching them. Hah! Guess how well that worked out. They sure are entertaining, though. Gotta love our kitties!

    Thanks so much for all your nice feedback. I finished the wall hanging in one weekend and I am hooked. I love the fact they go so fast. Instant gratification. :D :D :D :D Now I'm ready to start a winter wall hanging on my next weekend off.

    I tried a shorted dowl for hanging it. It didn't seem to help with the pointy corners. Any suggestions???
