Autumn Quilties

These are the little art quilts I made for the November swap on Unlimited Textiles.
The theme was Autumn and they measure 5in square.

I had great fun with these.
I grabbed pieces of fabric, paper and painted paper towel.
They were in a box that I keep if pieces that are too small to make something with but too large to throw out.

I kept in mind the challenge I had done a couple of months ago and put the pieces on to my backing and leaving them, not moving them around to see where they lead me.
I stitched a large leaf shape over the fabric collage to tie it all together.


I'm happy to report that my partners Claire and Sandy liked them ;0)

I would not have thought of treating autumn with squares, as you did. But when I see it, I think it is effective and very pretty. This was a clever idea!

Building a quilt from the scrap box is one of my favorite pastimes - they look like they were wonderfully fun to create.

Alis, I'm not sure that I have left you a comment before, but I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all your lovely work. This morning I was inspired to get out my neglected sewing machine and start a Christmas paper "quiltie". It is still a WIP, as I look for things to add on top, but I love it already.
Thanks again.

They are both lovely Alis - what a great way to use pretty scraps too precious to throw away! Val

Fabulous piece, I like your work in earlier posts too.

Your small pieces of art are fabulous! I just put a bunch of little pieces in a box, because I couldn't stand the thought of tossing them out. Now I know what to do with them!
