About this Quilt

quilt-summers-end-flat

A rainbow of color is a feast for the eyes, where some leaves have changed color and others are doing so as they fall. Wendy’s leaf blocks are all made the same way but in four different sizes, and so many colors! The blocks are arranged in an irregular, original composition that makes great use of space.

Though the block construction is the same for each of the four sizes, you will want to keep track of the matching sets of patches to make each leaf, and take care with the smaller leaves to keep a consistent seam allowance so everything fits together nicely in the end.

Another great thing about this pattern is that due to the different block sizes, you can easily use the pattern for other, smaller décor projects like throw pillows, hot pads, runners and even a set of coasters if you like! Bring your love of autumn color throughout your whole house, and share it with friends and family while making a quilt (and many other items) you can be proud of.
