Fall Coasters

The gloomy and grey month of November is here. Outside, only a few leaves remain on the trees and those on the ground are dry and brown.

But inside, I have a few maple leaves with everlasting shiny colors.

This one is my favorite, with the beige and brown spotty fabric.

This orange leaf is perfect to lighten a particularly dark day.

The thread I chose for this one may be too dark…

I made those leaves with leftover cotton fabric, following a wonderful tutorial written by Lara. She shared her Maple Leaf Mug Rugs or Coasters – Tutorial & Pattern last September and as soon as I read her post I knew I would make some this fall. They were so easy to do that I was able to sew three leaves in less than one hour.

Have you made fabric leaves too?

  1. Somehow I ended up here…from Lara’s blog I know, but had a hard time finding your blog page…anyhow, when Lara posted these coasters, I thought, great idea! I should make some! but never did, and forgot about them, not that that is a shock…Anyhow! Glad I found your blog, and these coasters to remind me to make some for this Fall. Yours are just beautiful. I love the glorious colours of Fall.

  2. France, you are such an incredibly nice person. Your maple leaves turned out so beautiful and I think I love the subtle colors even more than the bolder ones I used. And yes, the simple construction would work for a lot of shapes, and I am sure you, with your creative mind, have already thought up many ideas.

    • Thank you! Yes, fabric with fall colors are perfect and you only need two small squares. I think they would look good in brighter colors too. They would be less realisic but quite original.

  3. These are beautiful. I have not made fabric leaves before but I would like to…such a nice project for this time of year. ( Though if I got organized I would make them in the summer so they’d be done in the fall…how pretty a table runner would be with leaves like yours! 🙂

    • Thank you, Deb! This was the second time that I was making fabric leaves and the first time using this technique showed by Lara. Let me tell you that I will now use this technique, for leaves and any other shapes. And you’re right, they would make a beautiful table runner.

  4. Lovin these leaves! And know that I will be doing something with these soon! I wanted to Thank You for stopping by and linking up with “Anything Goes Monday”. I am enjoying be a guest host and meeting so many new quilty friends. I hope I can figure out how to follow you.
