I also love fall fabrics and fall quilts. In the midst of all my preparation for market, I decided I needed to create a small quilt to celebrate the new season. Would you like to join me?
For this project, you can choose to either create applique blocks or machine embroidery blocks. Since I am still having fun playing with EQ Stitch, I will be doing the embroidery version.
If you are not currently using Electric Quilt, I will also provide copies of the line drawings for your use in making the blocks.

Creating the Fall Leaf Block
This video will share how I created text for the fall quilt. I also took a motif from the Library, made some minor adjustments and created a stitching design.
Featured Product - Come Said the Wind
The poem in the quilt was written by George Cooper, an American poet who lived from 1838 – 1927. The large wall hanging finishes to 33”□, while the small one finishes 15” x 12”. To make construction easier, many sections in the quilt use over-sized piecing along with specialty rulers. If you cannot find the specialty ruler, instructions are provided for use of traditional rulers. Purchase pattern only here.
Maple Leaf Border Design: This pattern could be used as a border design or an edge to edge pantograph.
Maple Leaf Triangle and Point to Point Design: This pattern could be used as a triangle design or a point to point design to fill a series of setting triangles. It was specifically designed to complement the Come Said the Wind piecing pattern. It works great in both miniature and larger triangles.
