Autumn Blessing Free Quilt E-Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

Just when I think I couldn't possible add anything else to my Fall decorating "to do" list along comes another mini wall quilt that is just too charming to resist.   Kaaren Johnston has yet another charming pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make an "Autumn Blessings" mini quilt. My husband may divorce me, but this is definitely going on my Fall "to do" list.

First Friday Freebie #13 - Autumn Blessings

Copyright © 2010 - All Rights Reserved - Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  It sure would be nice to be posting this month’s First Friday Freebie on a cool, crisp Autumn day but that’s not going to happen until tomorrow. For the last four days, we’ve been experiencing record breaking temperatures for this time of year in the mid to high 90’s and along with the oppressive humidity, it’s been brutal.

This month’s FFF is an Autumn-inspired mini quilt called Autumn Blessings. It combines both pieced and stitched blocks with some wool appliquéd elements. I had the best time not only creating it but also when adding the embellishments. I could easily have gotten carried away and found that I really had to restrain myself. I hope you have fun making it your own.

Credit for my pattern and tutorials should be included if displayed in any manner. Individual users may enlarge or reduce the size of the drawings for their personal use but may not alter them in any other way.

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.

An Autumn Sampler Free Quilt E-Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

I can never get enough of wall quilts - especially those for the Fall season.   So, I was delighted to see that Kaaren Johnston had a wonderful pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make an autumn sampler.   Given my love of Fall this is definitely going on my "to do" list.

First Friday Freebie #22 - An Autumn Sampler

Copyright © 2011 - All Rights Reserved - Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  After four days of rain and an unseasonal ‘nor-easter thrown in for good measure, we have our fingers crossed for blue skies and sunshine today. Although yesterday dawned bright and cool, we had to fire up our furnace and build a fire in the wood stove for the first time this season. We even had a few wet flurries of the white stuff. Yikes! I think that autumn has officially arrived!

To celebrate the season, this month’s First Friday Freebie was designed to showcase the fading days of summer and the start of autumn…my favorite season! Watermelon, sunflowers, crows, wasps, pumpkins, birdhouses, flowers and of course the alphabet are included in this sampler.

Wool Crazy Pincushion Free Tutorial By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

I just love working with wool or wool felt.  And, I also LOVE pincushions. If you do, too then you'll be happy to know that Kaaren Johnston has a wonderful tutorial on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make a wool crazy pincushion.  I just LOVE it.


Copyright © 2010 - All Rights Reserved - Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her tutorial: At the outset, let me say that all the wool that I used came from scraps that I have saved over the years. Whenever I work with wool, I save all the bits and pieces and store them by color in separate zip lock bags. When I’m working on a project that requires small pieces of wool in a specific color, I just reach into the plastic bin that holds all my baggies of scrap wool and pull out the appropriate bag.

If for whatever reason you don’t have any wool or you might be allergic to wool (perish the thought), you can also make this pincushion in the exact same way that I am about to show you using fabric. The instructions are identical.

How To Make A Fall Wall Hanging Basket Floral Arrangement by Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals



As you know I am a big fan of silk floral arrangements and have been decorating my house with them for several decades. Some are just as old as that and have never needed to be replaced or redone. They're as good as new as the first time they were made. That's the beauty of silk florals. Plus, silk florals are just so much fun to work with and so versatile.

Several years ago I decided I wanted to create a Fall wall hanging flat basket silk floral arrangement for my entrance hall.

I wanted something that was not too big and didn't extend too far from the wall so I decided to go with a rustic basket I had purchased years before.

When the basket was done I brought it upstairs.. Luckily for me it fit the entrance hall wall perfectly and didn't extend too far out.

I was so pleased with the way my basket came out so I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step tutorial of how I made my Fall wall hanging flat basket silk floral arrangement. Here's how I made it:

Supplies Needed For The Fall Flat Hanging Basket:

1” Wired Ribbon (For Bow)  - 6 Feet
12” Flat Hanging Wall Basket With Handle

How To Make A Quick & Easy Fall Indoor Wall Hanging Floral Wreath by Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals


As you know one of the floral crafts I love creating is wreaths.  As far as home decorations are concerned you can never have enough wreaths. They're just so much fun to work with and so versatile.

Several years ago I decided I wanted to create a fall wreath for my bathroom wall.

I wanted something that was not too big and didn't extend too far from the wall as it was going to be on a wall adjacent to the downstairs sink and on the wall to the right of the downstairs bathroom mirror.  So I decided to go with a thin grapevine wreath I had bought.

When the wreath was done I brought it upstairs and, with my fingers crossed,  tried it.  Luckily for me it fit the bathroom wall perfectly and didn't extend too far out.

I was so pleased with the way my wreath came out so I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step tutorial of how I made my wreath.   Here's how I made it:

How To Make A Fall Silk Floral and Straw Front Door Wreath Tutorial and Free E-Book by Linda Walsh of Linda Walsh Originals



One of the floral crafts I love creating is wreaths.  As far as home decorations are concerned you can never have enough wreaths. They're just so much fun to work with and so versatile.


This year I decided I wanted to create a fall wreath for my front door. The challenge with creating a wreath for my front door is I only have a 3" clearance between the front door and the storm door as you can see in the picture above.  So, it couldn't just be any type of wreath.

I had bought a straw wreath many years ago that was actually 3" deep and 14" around that I thought would be perfect. I thought it might work so I started making my wreath.  As I was going along I thought, perhaps I should have tried the wreath on the front door before I started making it.Nah! It would fit. So, I contined with my fingers crossed.

As I was going along I decided to cover the straw wreath with ribbon and velvet leaves, which wouldn't increase the depth of the wreath and to place the silk florals inside the inner circle of the wreath, which also wouldn't interfere with the depth.

When thre wreath was done I brought it upstairs and, with my fingers crossed,  tried it.  Luckily for me it just fit.

I was so pleased with the way my wreath came out so I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step tutorial of how I made my wreath.   Here's how I made it:

Pansy and Viola in Silk Ribbon Embroidery Tutorials By Carol Daisy of Embroideries From Daisy's Garden

I LOVE just about any kind of silk ribbon embroidery flower and was was thrilled to see that Carol Daisy had a wonderful tutorial on her Silk Ribbon Embroidery blog showing you how to make pansy in silk ribbon embroidery.  Enjoy making your flowers.

Pansy in Silk Ribbon Embroidery

Copyright © 2009 - All Rights Reserved - Written by Carol Daisy of Embroideries From Daisy's Garden.

Here's what Carol had to say about her tutorial:  I thought that I would contribute the next few weeks to Spring Bulbs and Flowers in Silk Ribbon Embroidery. The colours are so vibrant and Silk Ribbon Embroidery lends itself well with the many colours available. A great way to keep Spring in your home all year round. Enviromentally friendly, no water needed.


Viola in Silk Ribbon Embroidery

Copyright © 2009 - All Rights Reserved - Written by Carol Daisy of Embroideries From Daisy's Garden.

Here's what Carol had to say about her tutorial:  As I promised in my earlier posting of Pansies in SRE, this is my version of a Viola flower. Please keep in mind that I have worked this in  7 mm. ribbons to make it easier to see on your monitors. I feel these would be so much more delicate and  effective in a 4 mm. ribbon.

Please respect Carol's TERMS OF USE:  The patterns and designs are available for your private use only & remain the copyright of "Embroideries from Daisy's Garden". Ribbon Embroidery Supplies are available from our Website " Embroideries From Daisy's Garden."

Carol's Bio: My life is at the stage that I can indulge in my interests of Embroidery and Crafts. Ribbons,beads,threads, laces and trims all have a special place here in my studio. 

My childhood was spent on the family dairy farm in Toowoomba, Queensland. When I was about 12 years old, my Grandmother (nicknamed Daisy – hence the name Daisy’s Garden) introduced me to the joys of needlework. I am so thankful to her for giving me a skill that I could enjoy and build upon for life. After the chores were done, whenever I had some spare time, I would sit quietly on the front porch and stitch away. I remember these times so fondly. When I retired, and finally had some time to myself, I had the desire to do embroidery again. I didn’t get far with the fancy work tablecloth however, once I discovered Silk Ribbon Embroidery, I became addicted!

A Fabric Easter Basket Free Tutorial For You By Amy of nanaCompany

How would you like to create an ultra cute fabric basket that was intended for Easter, but could be used all year long?  If you'd like to check out  the fabric Easter basket tutorial that Amy has on her nanaCompany blog.  A tisket....a tasket..... your own special basket....

Here's what Amy had to say about her tutorial: This little fabric basket could be useful and charming year-round, but it's perfect at Easter and is happiest when filled with candy. Disclaimer: While sewing this, my second basket, I realized that I should never be telling anyone how to sew anything. Seriously! But go ahead ~ give it a try...

Amy's Bio - Hi, my name is Amy. I live in a small house near the ocean in Los Angeles with my three children and my awesome husband. We are a lively family but we live very quietly ~ I can honestly say that all five of us are homebodies, looking forward to returning home whenever we go out. But the fun thing I've discovered while looking through my camera these past years, is that there is a lot of beauty in our "everyday." And I'm looking forward to sharing with you my life as I create and explore new ways to find that beauty.

Completely self-taught in everything, I am a "see it- do it" kind of girl. And I love trying new things. Maybe someday I'll have a real style, but for now I love vintage and modern, girly and clean, and everything in between.
