Fall Quilt Progress

Here's the start of the Fall Quilt - it will get a bit more busy than this before it's finished. It seems weird to have pulled all of those fabrics and yet used only the tiniest piece of each one. I cut 2" strips to get the squares so I may feel the urge to make another in a different pattern once this is finished.


Finn surprised me by tagging me for Nice Matters - the logo is so pretty I've put it on my sidebar for a little while. I would find it well nigh impossible to limit my nominations to just 7 people - so instead I'm just going to say is that this is a great international community and I love being part of it.

Love your little quilt - with 2" strips, you probably have enough to make several *s* Someone is going to be very pleased with their piece.

Bet you had a hard time arranging those colours in such a good design. I usually find that after I've spent ages rearranging them, I sew them together to find two reds of nearly the same hue together! What's your secret?!

Those colours look great.

I really like how you used up all those scraps with your Mile a Minute Quilt and think where you hung it for the photos looks so good!

Yummy autumny colours! The border would be great for some nice quilting with thicker thread. Take care.
