Thoughts on Fall

Sep 9, 2020New Fabric Line

Most everyone seems to have a favorite season. If yours happens to be Fall – help yourself to a cornucopia of ideas, patterns, fabrics, and kits celebrating crisp cool mornings, the reds, golds, and purples dotting the landscape, and the richness of harvest.

Fall Fabrics found at The Sewing Center and Fabric City

Holly Taylor’s “Country Charm” collection for Moda offers leafy, earthy toned prints richly suited to one of our very favorite patterns, “Divided by 3” by Mountain Peek Creations. That said, these seven pieces work equally well in any Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Design quilt pattern.

Speaking of Doug Leko, his book Tabletastic!, as well as The Big Book of Table Toppers by That Patchwork Place, serve up a fabulous variety of runners and toppers into which smaller prints …pumpkins, sunflowers, checks…playfully fit. May we suggest “Rustic Fall” by Painted Sky Studio for Benartex?

Celebrate Fall by making a Fall Table Runner or Table Topper

Speaking of pumpkins -nothin’ says lovin’ like somethin’ from the oven. The blocks on the panel from “Rustic Fall” scream “potholders!” Add a silicone trivet and ta-da! The potholder is more fun to make than a pumpkin pie!

Use this panel of pumpkin squares to make a set of potholders or a trivet.

Speaking of food – apples, pumpkins, sunflowers (think seeds), a basket to put them all in… Let’s just wrap up this post with patchwork patterns by Shabby Fabrics. These table runners gobble up your stash of scraps. Don’t have scraps? We have KITS! As for the basket, why not use a “Maple Sugar” jelly roll and the Cut Loose pattern “Two Bobbin Bowl?”

Other fun project ideas found at Fabric City.

Yum. Fall is tasty.
