This vibrant fall leaf quilt is chalk full of scrap quilt charm. Each leaf is a different color combination. All colours were chosen with the autumn season in mind and are quality cotton. The border fabrics also use leaf themed prints. This throw blanket is truly one of a kind.

I have used a soft backing called Fireside in a chocolate brown. This makes the quilt a little heavier weight than usual as the Fireside fabric is thicker than a quilting cotton. It also and adds a little more snuggle power :). The backing really shows the quilting pattern. I used a simple, all-over, echoed leaf design that I stitched freehand on my machine.

Use this quilt to add unique, seasonal decor to your space. In addition to a throw quilt, you could use as a table cloth or hang on a wall.

Size is about 65 inches square (165 cm) Again, remember that if you wish to hang this, a little extra security will be needed because of the weight as mentioned above.

This quilt ships free in North America, includes tracking and insurance. Ready to ship!

 

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition to good quality materials, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be…. outside under the tree, in your car, on a picnic, on the hammock, in the family room, etc. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Packaging & Shipping

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around. I also refund shipping overages.
