This appliqué and stitchery quilt was a free BOM by Bunny Hill designed that I started some time early in 2011. I actually completed the top mid last year but never got around to turning the flimsy into a quilt – but it was on my TO DO list for this year, and as a promise to myself I can only start a new quilt if I finish one of my UFO’s.
his quilt is made in warm autumn colours of oranges, greens and reds in keeping with the theme – squirrels and crows and pumpkins. I used a mixture of French General and thimbleberry fabrics with a mix of some others in my stash.
The upper and lower borders and backing fabric feature little acorns and leaves which is the perfect fabric to match the theme. I have also put a hanging sleeve on as this would make a nice wall hanging for autumn so I have finished it just in time for the season.
There are a few buttons stitched on such as the wooden acorn leaves in the crows beaks, and a glossy ceramic heart – as well as trim on some of the squirrels collars.
Now I can cross this off my UFO list. – YAY !
