Autumn Quilt

I've decided to make an Autumn themed quilt.  I love the ones I've seen with fall leaves; I just don't like some of the leaf patterns because they seemed rigid.  I found one that I really liked on two different blogs, one in  Russian and one in Spanish.  I liked that the leaf looked "natural", to me, like a real maple leaf.



The Spanish language blogger, Paula of A Toda Tela, included a sketch, with dimensions, so I'm utilizing that.


A couple of years ago I won some FQs from Lizzie House, 51 Fat Eights, in fact, and I've decided to use them for this quilt.


I won't use all of this fabric, but I believe I'll get a nice Autumn Quilt from these fabrics.

What are you working on?
May your bobbins always be full,

  1. I saw a beautiful table runner you had pinned and it had me thinking the same thing.

  2. That fabric is gorgeous and will be a perfect grouping for this! I agree, most leaf patterns lack movement and seem "cast in stone"....you found a very nice alternative! Will be anxious to see how this comes along....hugs, Doreen
