This is such a refreshing time of year isn’t it?
I am going to share a fun fall inspired Sizzix project with you today….. my “fall is in the air” porch pillow.
It was love at first
leaf sight when I saw this Brenda Walton leaves die. Even the box is snazzy. And pink!
Let’s get started cutting our pieces…….
Note: You can add Heat n Bond to your fabric before cutting the leaves or use a basting spray to hold them in place while you applique.
Repeat with your triangle die to make the outer border. You will need 32 triangles total.
The notches created on your Sizzix die help line up your pieces more evenly when stitching them together.
We are going to embroider the AUTUMN LEAVES verse onto the front of the pillow. You can dowload that here.
After printing the verse, i cut each word individually and taped them to the back of my linen square so I could position them however I wanted and trace.
You will need 7 triangles for the left border & 7 triangles for the right. Stitch them together. Attach to each side of your center unit, and square up.
Quilt as desired.
Thanks for stopping by…. happy quilting, happy fall & happy everything!
