Scrappy Fall Wall Hanging

Yikes! The end of the month again, and we are just finally getting our next Scrappy Quilt-A-Long Project up! Well, the good news is this project comes together super fast -- in just a few hours, as a matter of fact :)

This simple wall hanging is a perfect example of using a few bold, modern fabrics to make something seemingly traditional – like subtle cream-on-cream prints – look so fresh and fun.  The bright leaves seem to dance across a brick wall, blowing in a crisp fall breeze.  What a great way to use up a few miscellaneous scraps that just don’t seem to fit with anything else!

Finished size:    28 ½” x 18 ½”

What You’ll Need:
  • Assortment of creams and off-whites
  • 6-8 different bold, bright scraps (florals, geometrics, etc.) - depending on how many leaves you want
  • Fusible appliqué paper
  • Brown fabric for backing and binding (or piece various dark scraps together to create a one-of-a-kind backing or binding)
