your quilts came out really nice
You did an excellent job of recreating the pattern. Great job and what a lovely quilt.
Absolutely beautiful. Great job! Take care.
Below are some general directions for the quilt. I've also include pictures from the EQ7 program:
Bittersweet Autumn Leaf quilt
All fabric is from the Benartex collection - Bittersweet
You can google "Amish log cabin leaf quilts" and see pictures of similar ones.
24 leaf blocks - made from Eleanor Burns pattern - Autumn Leaves. I made each leaf from a different fabric. I also had to make the background fabrics about ¼" larger than the pattern called for, so that the leaf block would match the size of my log cabin. I found another leaf pattern "Lazy Leaves, by Far-Flung Quilts", and I like this leaf better, but I couldn't easily figure out how to increase the background fabric to make it the same size as my log cabin - 10 ½".
96 log cabin blocks all strips cut 2" wide, then sub cut ( you will need 96 of each piece) Assemble in typical log cabin, starting with the centers green and cream 2". Block finishes at 10 ½"
Green center: 2"
Gold: 3 ½" , 5"
Orange 6 ½", 8"
Purple 9 ½", 11"
Cream, 2", 3 ½", 5", 6 ½", 8", 9 ½"
You did a wonderful job recreating the quilt. Love your colors!
