    That's one great quilt. Love the colors. I always like fall season with changing leaves and your quilt captures that feeling so beautifully.

    Beautiful quilt! Those take some brain power.:)

    I understand how you feel about our young ones going overseas. It is next to impossible to get ahold of them except by email. My daughter and her friend spent 2 summers ago backpacking thru Europe. They both have been there before so this was their "cathedral" trip. They saw every one they could find. They found internet cafes in the evenings to keep us parents updated. They did have fun but I spent alot of time online watching for emails.!!

    Thank you for the measurements. I will start collecting fabric to make it in the new year.

    Beautiful!

    I finished a large leaf print quilt in 2008 (sorry, no picture). I hand outlined the multi-colored leafs and hand-quilted 3 leaf borders. It was a gift for my nephew who lives in Rhode Island.

    Fall colors are so pretty!

    Love it. The leaf quilting pattern and varigated thread really add a new dimension to it.
