Big, Bold & Beautiful

Free Project Instructions!

 

Initially, fall makes a quiet and subtle entrance - a smidgen of red here, a dash of gold there. Then, before you can say, 'rake,' a brilliant array of autumn colors bursts upon us, and the world is glowing with a kaleidoscope of vivid hues. Fall isn't a subtle sort of loveliness -- it's big, bold, & beautiful!

Celebrate the delicious vibrancy of the season with classic fall images -- including acorns, leaves, and squirrels -- paired with enchanting words and phrases. Add a colorful assortment of leaf montages, and bold tree panels for a burst of autumn hues.

Stunning bird and branch silhouettes bring an elegant look to home decor, while hot and fiery paisley and leaf swirls are just the right touch for jazzing up fall attire.

Intricate Trapunto leaves stitch quickly and turn sweatshirts and jackets into three-dimensional works of art. The addition of batting between the stabilizer and fabric adds a bit of cozy warmth, too.

Scroll down the page and dive into these fabulous fall designs!
