#17 WIP ~ Fall Quilt

I have never really been an orange person. It is one of the colors that I have tried to master in my quilting. So I decided to challenge myself to make a fall quilt.  When I went to my local fabric store there was a ton of orange in every shade you can imagine.  So I skipped right passed them and went to find a print that I really liked with orange in it.  By the way I love leaves.  All leaves.  I came across a beautiful leaf fabric and from there went to grab some coordinating oranges, golds, and greens.

I then sat down with a sheet of plain paper and drew out a few simple lines. Scanned into my computer and decided to run off a couple and using paper piecing method, sewed a few together.

A surprise pattern came out once a few of the blocks were sewn and laid out on my design board. I think I like it!

So I went ahead and precut all my pieces, and with the left overs, made some mini word quilts!

  1. Orange is not my favourite either. Love the way your choices came together. It’s going to be an amazing quilt!

  2. That’s a really neat block! Very creative, and I love your use of the leftovers!

  3. I love your self challenge! I do things like that, too, but don’t come out with nearly the great end result that you have here. Great blocks!

    I just love how creative you are! Fall colors are my favorite, after purple of course.
