Funky Fall and Free Pattern

Diane’s Funky Fall quilt fabric collection for Clothworks is light-hearted with a folk art appeal. Black crows with bright kerchiefs and happy scarecrows are featured with apples and apple pie, stemmed cherries, acorns and of course, pumpkins. The colors in the collection are as fresh and crisp as an autumn breeze especially when paired with the black or beige background on several of the patterns.

The panel is a collage of fall images for a myriad of creative possibilities.

Gayle Noyes framed several of the motifs and alternated them with pieced apple blocks for this free downloadable pattern.
