Maple Leaves - Ein Blättersturm from Quilt Collection M.

Ich habe es wieder gemacht und mich bei einem Quilt Along von Fatquartershop angemeldet. Wieder einmal ist das Thema ein Classic and Vintage Muster. Dieses Mal sind es Blätter und zwar die Maple Leaf Blätter. Blätter gehören im Herbst ja dazu und sie passen besonders schön zu den Kastanien, Eicheln und Tannenzapfen.

Das Layout bei meinem Quilt ist allerdings anders als bei der Vorlage. Bei mir hat sozusagen der Herbststurm zugeschlagen und alles durcheinander gewirbelt. Herausgekommen ist ein herbstlicher Blättersturm:

I did it again: I was part in a quilt along of Fatquartershop. The pattern  was again a vintage pattern ...

Courtney’s Leaf Quilt from Quilted Joy

Many quilts out there are made entirely of one repeated block. Sampler quilts can have as many as a hundred or more different blocks, without a single block repeating. Courtney made this beautiful quilt with two repeating blocks, and I think it came out amazing!

Courtney asked me to quilt her gorgeous Leaf Block quilt. I can tell she had lots of fun playing with color, finding the perfect contrast of bold and neutral. She asked me to quilt this with a swirly edge to edge design that balanced the structured rigidity of her quilt.

One of the blocks is a simple maple leaf in a cream square on point with a darker tan and black fabric in the corners. She picked different colors for each of her leaves giving us the full spectrum of fall in the quilt.

Between the leaves are blocks that are half log cabin blocks ...

Getting into the Fall Season Spirit from Quilted Joy

The renters here have been getting into the fall spirit lately with some fun and very cute autumn quilts! Here’s a peek at some of the quilts they’ve been working on!

Autumn Leaf Quilt

Nancy brought in this sweet autumn leaf block quilt for her rental certification class. This lap quilt is the Goldilocks quilt for the certification class, it’s not too big or too small! For the quilting, Nancy wanted to stick with the leaf theme and used the Ground Cover pantograph. I can imagine Nancy will be wrapped up in this quilt on cool nights this fall.
