Four Seasons Wall Hanging #1 of 4 – Summer

 

The entry of my house opens to the stairway, upstairs landing, and a long hallway to the kitchen and living room. The second floor room that houses my ‘sweat shop’ has four openings looking out to the stairway and the downstairs entry way. These window type openings are the perfect place to display small quilts or wall hangings.  Since I have four openings I thought of the four seasons even though we do not have the typical seasons here in sunny Florida.

The wall hanging pattern I picked is called Autumn Retreat designed by eQuilter and Jude Spero of Little Louise Designs. Their pattern featured a lovely fabric called Nature Hike for Timeless Treasures and had six window type blocks all together to make one large wall hanging. Since my windows are 35″ wide and I have four, I thought I would adjust the pattern to make it work as individual units.

The first of my Four Seasons projects is Summer. I found this fabric at JoAnn’s as yardage and not a panel but it has everything I think of as summer related: watermelons, flags, picnics, and pickup trucks.

Three more seasons to post.

Thanks for reading.
