free appliqué quilt block pattern - a Fall Season Scene

Make a fall scene with oak leaves

This 18" square free appliqué pattern can make a small wall quilt, or be used as a large block in a 4 seasons quilt. This is the second in the series of four (click for: summer - winter - spring blocks) . [Note: all 4 blocks are now available.]

Feel free to use any raw edge appliqué techniques which you enjoy to make this fall scene. Since this is meant to be a decorative block, I recommend using fusible web such as Wonder Under. But if you want to use it in a bed quilt, I'd use raw edge appliqué and machine zigzag around the edges. And if you love to hand appliqué - go at it!

This free appliqué pattern is meant to be an 18" finished block, but you may want to enlarge the templates to a larger size.  The little horizontal bar on the drawings is (if you enlarge the templates to make an 18" block) meant to be 1 x 3" inches.

Fabric Choices? Blue batiks or softly mottled blue fabrics would be nice for the sky with some autumn colors for the sun (or make it a moon, if you prefer). If you have small amounts of marbled or hand dyed fabrics or batiks they would be perfect for the oak leaves. A dark brown textured print is good for the tree bark. Look for some green fabrics that could suggest grasses in three shades. Using lighter, brighter fabrics for the front grass and deeper green for the back will help the illusion of depth. The little trees you scatter on the hillside can be anything fun - they don't have to be green.
