Twice a year Amy hosts the festival as a chance for us quilt bloggers to share and be inspired by each other's work. Bloggers can enter up to two quilts and there is a total of eleven categories to chose from. I decided to enter my Falling Leaves quilt into the small quilt category.
The pattern for Falling Leaves can be found in the book 101 Fabulous Small Quilts. I had some yardage and charm packs of Moda's October line of fabric from many moons ago that need to find just the right project to land in. Falling Leaves could not have been more perfect.
I wish I could take 100% credit for the quilting design in this project, but I cannot. I was stumped for months on how I wanted to quilt this small quilt. I submitted it to Kathleen at Kathleen Quilts and she featured it on her Free Motion Friday post here. You can read more about how I used Kathleen's suggestions to decided on my quilting plan here. I choose to quilt this piece in threads that would match the fabrics used on the quilt top.
You can also check out my other entry Jungle Gym in the mini quilt category. Thanks for taking time to stop by and check our my entry to the small quilt category. I hope you will also pop over to Amy's and check out all of the other talented artists as well.
