Autumn Leaves Quilt ~ progress

It seemed to take forever to get to this point.  Cutting the print fabric for the Leaves and Seedpods took about half an hour for each one.  That's 20 times 30 minutes, 10 hours of cutting on the print fabrics alone.  I didn't keep track of time when I cut the Kona White for the background fabric.

I decided to change-up my modus operandi for this quilt.  For Aunt Lorraine's version, I made two blocks at a time.  For each set of blocks, I cut fabric then stitched them together.  This time I have more confidence and I cut all the fabric, then I chain stitched all the side points on the leaves.  The small HSTs on the right, took me an extra step of stitching, but those 2.75 inch cuties will go in another "scrappy" quilt, maybe like this one that I made from Aunt Lorraine's qult.

Now, to get to the next step, putting together the middle points for the leaves and the small points for the seed pods.  Fun times.  What are you up to?

May your bobbins always be full,
