Free Fall Quilt Along




I am a member of the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers and found a new pattern to do.



First, it fits into my goals of using up fabric that I already have.  In fact, I had been gathering my batiks to do a quilt with half square triangles and ran into this.  Funny thing, I was pulling a blue/purple combo from my pile and had a fall pile leftover.

Second, I needed a new project that excited me.  I have a lot of UFOs I am working on but was looking for something new.

Serendipity!  You can find the instructions for this quilt along at mmm! Quilts.  There is a button too on the right side of my blog.

I thought I'd link up to Sew Fresh Quilts and her Let's Bee Social Group today.

  1. I love the palette you have chosen! I am still working on deciding what I am going to use for the QAL. I suppose I had better get on that. :)

  3. Kathleen, this is going to be so rich! Glad that you shopped your stash for it too, love that. Need to do more so I can justify buying more fabric, LOL, as if that ever stopped me, ha. Thanks for linking up!

  4. Beautiful choice of fabrics. I'm doing mine as a Canada 150 patriotic quilt.

    1. Destashing is my mantra. We have a downsizing move coming up and although there is space, I want to work through some of what I have kept for such a long time.
