This 15”x24” wallhanging is created on a background fabric, using various sizes of rectangles in autumn colours. 

The trees are appliquéd in position and we’ll use simple straight lines to quilt the project.

The hanging is finished with a couched edge using a decorative yarn.

Kits can be provided for this project which includes the pattern drawn onto the base fabric and everything else needed to complete the project apart from thread.   A list of fabric requirements are included under Essential Information.

Carol Munro

Carol has been passionate about patchwork and quilting for over twenty years and loves being able to pass on her knowledge to others. Her favourite techniques include appliqué and foundation piecing, although she’ll happily work on any technique. She holds City and Guilds Diplomas in both Patchwork and Quilting, and Embroidery. Carol loves free motion quilting, and having discovered ruler quilting several years ago, she will often combine both when quilting her quilts to achieve the desired effect. Nothing pleases her more than seeing students grow in confidence and enjoying new found skills.

Autumn Trees Requirements List


85cm           backing and base fabric– 200 count Moda calico is the prefect weight for this project


85cm           wadding– You will need a thick firm wadding.  Vliesline 272 Thermolam is ideal.


2.5m            Bondaweb


25cm           Tree1

20cm           Tree2

20cm           Tree3


5cm             Fabricfor narrow columns – a good contrast to the background


For the backgroundyou will need lots of fabricsin Autumn colours,

browns, golds, reds, oranges, yellows, purples, and lime greens, perhaps some

turquoise.  The fabric should range from light to dark, you won’t need a lot of

any of them, but the more fabric you have the more interesting the

background will be.  I have around 60 different fabrics in my samples.


2.5m            Yarnfor couching the edge of the quilt top.  Look for something interesting to match your choice of fabric – shaggy, boucle, variegated etc.  You could match it to the colour of your trees or go for an autumn colour to suit your background. The shaggy yarns can be quite fine, but otherwise go for something around DK thickness.


Quilting Thread – Thread for trees, thread for background – variegated works perfectly for

this project.  Thread for couching the edge of the quilt.
