Raking Leaves


Teacher - LaVonne Jackson
Technique - Piecing
Skill Level - Intermediate
Finished Project Size: 82" x 82"

This is a fall quilt that was designed using two blocks. There is a leaf block and a 16 patch block. The blocks are placed on the diagonal that gives this quilt more interest. This quilt was originally designed around a Riley Blake Fabric called Bittersweet Farms but I have recolored it in another Riley Blake fabric called The Old Garden and it looks great colorized in different fall fabric lines. The biggest technique used in this quilt is how I like to use half blocks instead of triangle setting blocks. It gives a little added design to the edge of the quilt that butts up to the inner border.
