    I remember seeing this quilt, but for the life of me I can't remember where I saw it. CRS is kicking my bum. LOL
    The quilt is beautiful.

    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I have this pattern. It's called "Third Weekend in October" by Ruth Powers. I'm pretty sure I've seen the pattern in the Keepsake quilting catalog. I bought the one I have at Great American Quilt Factory in Denver but they're out of business now.

    I think I remember that pattern being in the Keepsake Catalog a few years back. Not sure if they still have it.

    After I pulled my pattern out to get the name and designers name off of it I pulled the pattern out and looked at it. Now I remember why this one is at the very back of the pattern bin. It has a whole lot of little paper pieced parts and you pretty much have to have a design wall to keep it all straight.

    KQ does have it as a kit (for $49.99) and it's not complete,
    http://www.keepsakequilting.com/productdetail/3502.htm
    but the OP asked for the pattern...which the designer is selling for $7.00 (link in my prior post above).

    How could I have missed that. It is just so awesome. I would like to also have the name of it.

    Neat pattern!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    That is a gorgeous pattern. Does anyone know if it includes all the foundation papers?

    It doesn't include any HST foundations and it only has one of each of the other foundations you need. The other foundations are for the leaf stems. There are a dozen different squares and you need several of each one.

    I made this quilt about 10 years ago. Handquilted it. You definitely need a design wall as the pieces run into each other and it takes some "doing" to keep your fabrics and colors straight. A friend also made this quilt and sold it at "Sisters" show for $1200. I will give mine to a granddaughter who is getting married next October.

    This quilt definitely deserves "Heirloom" status. It is gorgeous.

    For an easier version, I would make a backgound of mixed colors, add the border then sew all the different color and size leaves on it stacked and cut to layer.
    Got fabric?

    Thanks so very much for the reference--I hadn't encountered Ruth Powers and love her work and web site!

    I am also very fond of the board's own Eddie L's "Fall Leaves" quilt. Now I am going to have to make both fall leaves quilts...
    I didn't make this beautiful GFG quilt but it's on my wish list to do

    It is beautiful. It looks like someone threw a bunch of pretty leaves up in the air and they landed haphazardly and were left there. Just like in nature. Be sure to show pictures when you finish making this quilt.

    I remember seeing it here too ... thank you Ghostrider for sharing the link to purchase the pattern.

    I gotta ask ... it looks like it could be lots of work, but I know from experience that looks can be deceiving. Anyone know if it is a difficult pattern or lots of work? I can't tell by looking at this gorgeous quilt!

    I really hope she realizes what she is getting and appreciates it. Sometimes people receive quilts as gifts and don't take care of them!

    You ladies are so amazing. Someone posts a picture of a quilt they want to make and sure enough, someone knows the
    name of the pattern, then a couple more posts and a link. I clicked on it - and that was it :0)

    I would love to make this quilt, too! I will order the pattern from Keepsake Quilting. Looks like lots of us will be making this one. It is a real challenge!
