feeling fallish

Cooler weather motivates me to quilt more! Got out some old wall hangings that I hang every year in the fall.
I made this hanging the year that we spent 4 weeks in October and November in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. I missed the fall colors of home, so I made this bargello type hanging, with embellishments of "silk" leaves to hang on the balcony next to some palm trees at our ocean front condo.
I loved making this hanging because it was so different and "freeing" -- I used velvety poly for the borders and a silky fabric for the sashing, and each leaf is created from some non-traditional fabrics - no quilting cotton fabric at all. It makes me think of Fall Freedom.
I really can't decide which is my favorite leaf!
