In keeping with the fall season, I thought I would show my Scattered Leaves in Amy’s Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival this year. My Scattered Leaves quilt is special to me because it was selected to be the cover quilt of The Quilter‘s November 2010 issue. My regular readers are probably sick of me showing this quilt (sorry!), but I thought the new visitors might like seeing it…
Fall is a favorite season in my household. So I jumped at the opportunity to work with RJR‘s Autumn into Winter fabric collection. I used just about all the fabrics in that collection to achieve a scrappy look even though the fabrics are from the same collection.
The blocks are the popular maple leaf block, with a “signature” twist. Instead of stitching and commemorating names of people, I hand stitched popular food items we enjoy in the cold months of the year on each block.
I used Aurifil Mako 50 threads of different colors to match the main color of each block for quilting. Using Hobbs’ Tuscany Silk Batt makes my quilt soft and cuddly.
This quilt will be treasured in our household because it will memorialize the comfort of food in our family for many many years to come.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Should you feel like viewing more fall quilts I have made this year, here are the links: Fruit of the Vine, Cascade of Leaves. You may also click here for my Japanese Fruit Pie recipe – a favorite at our house.
Have a blessed and fantastic autumn!
