Autumn Leaves by Coralquilts
The final season wall hanging for Grandma Mary Jean. Approx 38" x 18". Leaf block based on traditional design and 9" finished. Matilda's Own Cotton/Poly batting.
I used the Missouri Quilt Company's technique for half square triangles by sewing around two squares and used the formula covered here: http://whipup.net/2011/03/17/guest-blogger-series-half-square-triangles/. I calculated 5.5" squares for 3.5" HST's, but rounded up to 6" so I could trim them down to size exactly.
I used Mettler Polysheen for the leaf vein free motion quilting, and Gutterman 50wt cotton for the other FMQ.
