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.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy again,
    Too bad I didn’t read this post first . . . I would have had my question that I posted in your second reveal answered. I love the reds in this one . . . I always seem to be drawn to red. Looking forward to seeing all of them! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. What a fun concept. My only question is……..will you lose light coming into your “sweat shop” ? I like the idea of drawing your eye up to the 2nd floor to catch a look at your 4 seasons. So, the question becomes, what are you going to do for the side that looks into your “sweat shop’? I envision another project of 4 themed wall hangings! Oh the possibilities are endless.

    1. Thanks. No light lost as I used a tension rod and mounted the wall hangings at the bottom of the window opening. I will try to get a picture when I get them all mounted. I like your thinking about more themed hangings. I always get caught up in the ‘might as wells’, you know–as long as I am doing this I might as well do that. 🙂
