Autumn Leaves - November 2010

Are you an "old hand" at hand applique? Or maybe this will be something new. Either way, this bite-sized project will delight your creative spirit.

We'll start with a 6" square foundation and add one or more leaves (of any shape) in autumn colors. Any combination of prints, solids, batiks, plaids, stripes...whatever says autumn to you. (Finished size in the quilt top will be 5 1/2".)

As you know, this method is called needleturn applique. You can see a tutorial on YouTube by Karen (not me) and Deb of CT Quilting Videos. It's about 7 minutes long. Some parts are hard to see, but hang in there; other parts are very good.

For each block that you make, you get a chance to win all the blocks. Join the fun. This will be a beautiful quilt.
