Fall Leaves Quilt

No denying it - fall is on it's way! My oak tree has started dropping leaves, providing a pretty background for my newest beginner friendly quilt pattern, Fall Leaves.

The Fall Leaves quilt pattern features maple leaves in two sizes, accented with small bits of orange and turquoise. Pictured above is the Fall Leaves wall hanging/baby quilt size, with 3 additional sizes - lap, twin, and queen - included in the pattern. Along with easy to follow block and quilt construction details, all fabric quantities, block amounts, and border sizes are clearly presented.

For the wall hanging, I chose a simple color scheme of dark value reds for the small maple leaves, and lighter value golden yellows for the large maple leaves. With a larger quilt, add in additional colors - fern green, plum purple, burnt orange, and peanut brown - as seen in this lap sized mock up diagram. This is easily a fat quarter friendly quilt!

Of course, the best way to choose additional leaf colors is from the leaf border print, which ties the whole quilt together. The small bits of orange and turquoise add the pop!

Quilting can be an all-over pantograph, or the custom quilting of a favorite fill (stipple, leaves, swirls, etc) in the background and veins in the leaves. I chose a wavy design, upon request from my son - he envisioned the leaves blowing in the wind.

And of course, another leaf print finishes off the back.

I'm so looking forward to fall with all it's magnificent colors, and enjoying the beauty of Fall Leaves - 

Happy Fall!

  2. Lovely fall quilt! Reminds me of the one and only quilt that I ever quilted by hand, a maple leaf pattern that I got from QNM back in 2003 or 2004. I enjoyed quilting it but it was a small lap size and it still took FOREVER!! I like those little HSTs that you've mixed in with your leaves. They remind me of acorns!
