Weekly Themed Quilt Contest

Weekly Themed Quilt Contests

I love virtual quilt shows...and this week I am able to participate, as the theme is Leaves, Trees and Flowers.

I put up my Autumn Leaves Quilt that I finished in 2011. I am pretty much a traditional quilter and love the Maple Leaf block. Constructing it out of Japanese fabric, I started experimenting with its orientation and this is the result.

I wanted the leaves to be just "thrown" across the quilt in an orderly way to evoke the sense of the leaves being scattered across the quilt top. Anyway, this is the version I finally settled on.
Hope you like it.

To have a look at all the quilts, head over to the Quilting Gallery for the Weekly Themed Contest. Voting starts today and finishes on Monday at 8am (EDT).

Until next time
