    I received 22 FQs of the Hearth and Home collection from Connecting Threads yesterday. They are gorgeous fall colors! Of course I needed to come up with a design for a Fall quilt. Did this in EQ last night but I'm still figuring up how the FQs need to be cut. The longest strip is 40"x5" (+ seam allowance) so it could be pieced from two strips of a FQ. There are only 3 strips that would need to be pieced. There are eleven 10" squares and then all the 5". I think it can be done with 22 FQs and I thought... all those Turning 20 quilts can be done with 20 FQs so it ought to be enough. If not I have several stash FQs that will go well with them.

    I think it's 52"x62". Would be a nice throw for the couch in my green green/brown/orange family room.

    Pretty colors! Love the look of the triangles and the applique leaves.

    Lord, Pam, I can't believe how much you can get done! I really like the fall theme of your next quilt. Great design, too. You do such beautiful work.

    Doesn't EQ figure yardage? My inexpensive program does.
