Cascade of Leaves in QUILTER’S WORLD (October 2010)

Hello Friends, it’s great to have you visit again! My Cascade of Leaves quilt is officially featured in Quilter’s World‘s October 2010 issue!

You may remember these fabrics from months ago:

These fabrics from Benartex‘s Silk Road Collection turned into this quilt:

I loved working with these fabrics because they give the interpretation of fall colors a rather exotic look:

Here are some close-ups of the leaves. I can see these leaves by themselves on a throw pillow. I might have to make some to go with the quilt.

The overall feather quilting is comprised of machine embroidered feathers (stitched with Isacord machine embroidery thread), and free-motion quilted filler feathers (stitched with YLI Silk 100 thread) :

Again, I used Hobbs‘ Tuscany Wool Batt for the batting. It made my quilt lay nice and cuddly and soft despite being densely quilted:

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you a lovely fall season!

  1. Hi Wendy,
    My daughter took me out today, and guess what was the first thing I bought?? Your cover girl magazine! Love the shadowy leaf. It’s very lovely and just in time for fall ;-)

  2. I love the free-flow maple leaves on your quilt! It’s very creative and makes it look “alive” and not too “rigid”… love it! Happy Mid_Autumn Festival!

  3. The perfect quilt for the beginning of Autumn days! Like those leaves gently drifting down the quilt, I would be gently drifting down to slumber under this beautiful work of art! Love the sky blue background with those shadowy Autumn leaves.
    Beautiful quilt, Wendy!

  4. All so amazingly beautiful, every stitch! The drop shadow makes the leaves have such depth, and your subtle background is wonderful. Perfect verse, too :-}pokey

  5. It’s beautiful, I love the shadow effect on the leaves, they almost jump off the quilt. The quilting is wonderful. Do you do the main feather sprays separately or do you do it all freehand as you go? It fascinates me and I love the effect of them.
