Falling Leaves

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  And I have my beautiful Falling Leaves quilt to show, perfect for the season.

Got it done just before red and green take over our lives, so excuse the reindeer in the background!

Here's a couple quilting closeups.
The leaf pattern was stitched in both the cream area and the more colorful areas, following the zigzag of the quilt top.  This pattern is one I created from two existing pantos, Fall Leaves and Fall Oak Leaves,
specifically to fit the zigzag space.
The colorful zigzag was wider, and required some fill, but a flowing line of curls solved that problem.
And on a previous post, I showed how I quilted it from the front of the machine.  Worked great, just wish I could have completed the quilt in a day, versus a row today, a couple rows the next day, etc.  Found I was always double checking the panto placement because of laser light movement.  But I'd still try following a design from the front again.

Not to be forgotten is the back.
Four yards of fabric, stitched with a band in between the selvage edges provided the length I needed.

How's the Black Friday shopping going?  Hubby and I looked through the ads, but didn't find much to inspire us to brave the crowds.  Instead, we shopped on-line, and yes, I did order the Silhouette Cameo, opting for the new, redesigned model. Check it out here, on Cost a bit more than the model at Joann's, but got the bundle deal, so lots of extras. 

Next on the list is more Glide thread.  I received an email that there is free shipping on orders over $45, and 10% off of most thread.  Try using the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY14 at if you're interested.

And last but not least, my favorite online class company, Craftsy, is having a great sale through Monday, December 1!
All classes are $19.99 or less!  Woohoo!
Now to do more online shopping!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
