Helen Hazon – A

A for Autumn Leaves

Inspiration – The garden is showing its Autumn colours. Leaves are changing colour and there are some berries. Only a few flowers bloom in November – we have yellow from Mahonia and winter Jasmine, pink from Nerines and Fuchsia and a few golden Chrysanthemums.

Most of the colour in the garden in November is from leaves – the evergreens of course but also the Autumn colours of the deciduous trees. We have large oak and larch trees, a witch hazel and a dogwood that all give beautiful yellow shades. There are also a few reds in the Nandina and Cotinus and in the fruits on apple and holly trees.

The background is confetti pieces reflecting the November garden colours, all anchored with net and free motion quilting. The autumn leaves, some collected on the ground and some still falling from the trees, had veins machine stitched on before being individually attached to the background by just a few stitches.

The quilt is mostly cotton with nylon net.
