A fall or a leaf quilt has never been something that I’ve thought of doing. But then I came across these fabrics in my stash. They are so perfect for a fall quilt that I can’t resist them. What kind of pattern, though? I remember some of the wonderful Japanese hexagon quilts I’ve seen online and in books and keep thinking that perhaps some hexagons falling on to the ground might be my version of a fall quilt. Maybe.
Or perhaps a Winding Ways quilt. I’m leaning towards that as I’d love to make something in the Winding Ways pattern again, but this time with the smaller blocks. There’s a cream batik in my stash that would work with these fabrics. Starting the fall quilt won’t happen immediately as I really want to keep going with the Pickled Ladies and the Pickled Clam Star blocks, but these fabrics are going to be kept together and a note is now in my ideas book.
The sixth Pickled Lady block is done. Again in a favourite fabric.
Tuesday was a gloriously sunny day and both kitties were watching out the window. Smudge at one end:
And Lester at the other:
