Description

Alright, I know I have two shirts to complete, two quilt tops finished waiting to be quilted, a purse half done, a travel bag cut out, two mystery quilts in production and several blocks to finish for my BOM BUT I just had to try this quilt along by Christa Quilts!

I have this lovely line of fabric "Leaf Haven" by Michele D'Amore for Bernartex that I've been wanting to work on. With Fall just around the corner this seemed a perfect fit for my fabric. Each week there is a tutorial. This is only week 2 so there's plenty of time to join.

The first step was supplies, this Thursday it was cutting and sewing, next Thursday the top will be completed. Christa is also going to take us through FMQ the quilt ourselves. That's what I really need to learn!

And then I'll finish the shirts, blocks . . .

Sunday: Finished piecing 100 of the blocks . . . up on the design wall to design positioning.
Aug 31st: Front Piecing is completed. Finished piecing the backing . . . time to sandwich my quilt!

Sept. 19th: I finished! The last stitch of the binding was completed this afternoon! I think the backing is my favorite part of the quilt :smile:! I also love the fact that I quilted it all myself on my little Viking Emerald 203. I have some pictures of the detailed sections also.

What terrific fabrics...I popped over to look at her site and this looks like a fun and easy quilt which will be so pretty when its done. It is similar to the strip quilt I made when I first started quilting (and the one that got me hooked on quilting!). Can't wait to see this one all done!

Thank you! You and True are always such great cheerleaders and your encouragement is appreciated smiley

I am glad it helps +kmwilson28 :-) I really like how this looks on your design wall. The pops of green and rust (not sure that is right color) really add to its beauty.

This just keeps getting better and better I love it even more then before!

This just speaks "fall"! What a great way to use strips.
