Leaves- HQM Quilt 24

  It is Week 24 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and this week I purposely left a small one, because I knew I would be at Garden of Quilts all week and just had Monday to get this done :)   And so that is exactly what I did and now I get to share my adorable finish . . . Leaves!!! 

I fell in love with this quilt the moment I opened it in the May 2021 Sew Sampler Box  and I whipped up the quilt in no time at all.  And then, ya know, story of the whole quilting marathon, it sat and waited to be quilted :)  Which is kind of sad, because it only took me a little bit to quilt, but again, also good, because I needed a small quilt for this weeks marathon ;) 

Leaves is an Exclusive Pattern for the Sew Sampler Box and uses a Joy in the Journey Rolie Polie.  I just love the soft tones and adorable prints.  It's perfect for a fall baby quilt!!! And wouldn't ya know, I have a sweet friend in the neighborhood expecting any day!!!  Sometimes, timing just works out perfectly :)  

And one of the big reasons I could quilt this so fast is that I used a traveling all over feather design.  I know this looks a little complex, but it really is super easy to quilt, and double bonus, super fast to quilt as well!!! And I just think the loose feathers go perfectly with the leaf design, just another set of falling vines :)  

And that is my Leaves Quilt!!  Now it is all tied with a ribbon and ready to be delivered just as soon as a little bundle of joy is delivered :)    

And that is Quilt #24 - All the Trimmings ;)  24 Down and only 2 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   It's so great to only see the last row empty!!!  

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Pin It!
