    Leaves are falling in Texas

    It all started when the shelves of my bookcase in the sewing room fell and all my books were everywhere. Well I found some Holiday books and was looking through them and found a leaf pattern. (any pattern will do) and decided to make a table runner. Well needless to say that went into a oversize lap quilt. it was fun. I just appliqued (by machine) on a off white on white piece of material. Then I decided to put the leaves over the border.Name:  Leaves are falling in tx.jpg

    This is all scraps also. Everyone here makes some wonderful quilts from scraps I decided to try this.
    Thanks for looking.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    Great quilt. Love the way you extended the applique into the borders.

    Fall leaves in such pretty colors just falling all over the place is such a cute idea. Great job.

    My Mom and late Grandmother made a wedding quilt for my late little Brother and SIL with patterns gathered from leaves in their home town. I inherited those patterns; seeing your quilt makes me want to pull them out and make a quilt to remind me of my family. Your quilt is beautiful! I like the leaves appliqued over the edge of the borders.

    Your quilt is great!
    Now if that had happened to me, the books would still be all over the floor while I worked on the quilt, LOL! I'm sure *you* straightened your room before you began like a good girl.

    I think maple leaves are so beautifully colored in the fall. My favorites for sure. Pretty translation onto a quilt.

    Howdy, haven't seen or talked with you for quite awhile! Love the falling leaves! so inspired I would have just cried that my books fell! You are so creative with adding the leaves outside the center and all scraps, wow! Have only been to JoAnns twice since the remodeling, been trying to stay away and save money! I'm not used to the arrangement and get too tired trying to find what I want. Have you checked out the Hip Stitch shop yet? Lovely folks & lots of cute ideas. Hope tosee you sometime soon.

    Love, love, love it, Delta! The leaves on the boders are a nice touch.
