I somehow see my Scattered Leaves quilt (featured as cover quilt in The Quilter‘s October/November 2010 issue) in an outdoor setting. So, despite our crazy schedule, we managed to load everyone and the quilt up and went to the park...
You can see my little photography stylist being hard at work, making sure that my quilt was draped just right.
I had shipped this quilt by Express Mail to the editor because of a photoshoot deadline. Well, my quilt was mis-delivered and as a result missed the photoshoot. One of the editorial staff ended up having to drive the quilt to the photographer’s house to get him to photograph it for the October/November lineup.

I was touched to hear about the behind-the-scenes dedication of the staff at The Quilter. I am now even more appreciative of the editorial staff with whom I have the absolute privilege and honor to work.
I have stitched on the blocks some favorite food items the Ivory Spring household enjoys during the Holiday Season to go with the “Autumn into Winter” fabric collection name. [Click here for more ideas on personalizing your quilt blocks.] I used one strand of DMC embroidery floss stitching with tiny stitches (about the size of a single weave on the fabric). The tiny stitches make the cursive words flow much more smoothly.
You can see that pumpkin is a big deal in the Ivory Spring household. I am interested to know what your favorite pumpkin anything recipe is for the fall/winter season:
The quilt was made with fabrics from RJR‘s Autumn into Winter collection. I used almost all the fabrics in this collection for this quilt to give it a scrappy look.
Scattered Leaves was quilted using my domestic machine with Aurifil‘s Mako Cotton 50 threads of different color to match the different fabrics over Hobbs‘ Tuscany Silk batt – absolutely bliss, I tell ya!
Kits for the quilt are available from Quaker Town Quilts.
Ellen (no blog) left this comment on a previous post about my Scattered Leaves quilt that just leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy. I am all about heirloom. To hear that someone is graciously including me in her family’s tradition just made my day. Thank you, Ellen.
“I am definitely going to make the commemorative quilt, Scattered Leaves, for Thanksgiving. Our family traditionally feast together. Because it’s your design, you’re going to be part of our family for years to come. Thank you, Wendy. ” ~Ellen
I will share some of the recipes on this blog in a few weeks when the weather gets colder. Meanwhile, I am going back to work. I am currently working on a SUPER sweet project. I can’t wait to show you some preview pictures.
