Falling Leaves

Since I went through my quilt tops and took photos of them I had wanted to complete more of my quilts. Part of the reasons why is because I have room to hang them on the walls in my house. Part of the reason is I feel so guilty having so many tops not quilted.

This quilt is among one of my oldest quilt tops. Around 18 (give or take a few years) years ago I was part of an old Delphi Forum, BEFORE Facebook! We had a block exchange of Maple leaves. I received quite a few blocks and they sat for around 9 years. I put it into a top thinking I would add some interesting borders. The problem is. I am not fond of browns and oranges – so I rarely buy those fabrics.

i now have a wonderful place in my dining room for smaller wall hangings that this quilt fit perfectly in. .

Faux pleated pillows

When The Fat Quarter Shop released this free video tutorial a few months ago, I knew I wanted to make it. I was not sure from which fabric line, but I loved how it looked.

Then Chill by Zen Chic came out. I loved the rich purples.

Faux Pleated Pillows

I debated whether I should make two that the strips were matching or two where they were mixed up. In the end. My OCD won out, and I matched the strips.

This was such easy project and I look forward to making more in different fabrics.
