Autumn Adventures II
67 x 77
This is one of the five quilt tops I made last year when I cleared out a bin of autumn themed blocks and a box of autumn themed fabric. I blogged about the five tops last November.
This quilt is made of autumn themed Happy Blocks swapped long ago. The blocks finish at 6.5 inches. I set them on point and alternated blocks with leafy yardage I originally purchased for a quilt backing.
I quilted it on my DSM with three leaf clusters in the squares and then I did a leafy meander in columns to fill in between the squares. I used a brown variegated thread.
Since I used backing yardage on the front I felt compelled to use a variety of scraps on the back.
I included four 12 inch Crumb Leaf blocks that I decided I didn't really like. So I then crossed that UFO off the list. (I may try crumb leaves again sometime but limit the colors used in the blocks).
Another view of the leaf quilting.
On to the next!
