Little Fall Quilt

On Friday Night I decided that I would sign up for a class at Kathie's, one that I wasn't going to take, then I decided it would be a chance to learn a few new things and spend some time chatting with fellow quilters.  The first class was Saturday and  is once a month for 6 months, we are working from Fat Quarter Quilting by Lori Smith.  The book and 25 fat quarters (we got to pick the ones we wanted)  are included in the class fee, the book has 21-- 16 x 20 quilts, some are just piecing and some with applique.

We are able to select which quilts we want to make and we all chose the same one for this month.  Even though we all chose the same one I chose to use wool instead of fabric for the applique pieces.  Here is what I have gotten done so far.......

I am ready to start quilting and haven't yet decided if I am going to machine quilt it or hand quilt it.  I have already made the binding and will make a hanging sleeve for the back. 

Later I will show you what yummy fat quarters I selected.  The plan is that each month we will select a new quilt and begin cutting and piecing it in class, then continue working on it during the month.  The class is 3 hours so we have lots of time to get work done as well as asking questions about skills that are new to us.  It is very relaxed and we can work at our own pace. 


  1. Oh this is really nice ~ I've always liked the look of applique. This would be so pretty for Thanksgiving!

  2. Denise that looks absolutely amazing... I love all the fall colours... how fitting for the season. You really do beautiful work. Now you have another snuggle blankie to use while you are relaxing... it would beautiful displayed also. Great job.

    Hugs, Deb
