Only the Upper and Lower Blocks left…
and then we get to sewing the top together. Are you as excited? Or do you need a push? Let us now if we should send you some extra motivation and virtual hugs.
This week’s progress
I did finish this weeks task but I also managed to make two mistakes. One you can already see in this picture. I think it is not that big a deal and I will leave it in. The other is a bit more hilarious…
… I carefully planned the fabric placements for all six blocks but when I put them up on the wall it looked like this. What?!
Yes, I managed to get confused with the Upper and Lower part. Apparently that day when I was cutting my brain thought Upper Block = high UP on my design wall and so on… So I cut the fabrics directly opposite of where I wanted them to end up. But can you believe that I managed to have the block exactly matching the neighboring block by accident on all SIX of them?!
Guess my layout is back to the drawing board :) The pink one is easy, I can just switch it. But the green leaves will take a bit more moving around. But I am sure it can be fixed. Just need to find the motivation.
My Instagram Highlights
A few highlights from the hashtag #leafyquiltsewalong on Instagram. Look around, like and comment!
a very autumn sneak peek
I spy a few of this weeks block :) but aren’t those leaves gorgeous?!
I think someone was anxious to get it done :) But doesn’t it look great on that bench in the forrest/park?

Also I want to give a shout out to our sponsors. They are the ones that make the prizes for you at the end of the Sew Along possible. This week’s short profile:
Don’t want to take my word for it? Go look at her Instagram page.
Besides that she offers pdf patterns, a few are even free – I especially love the “Modern Heart” one. And I think those patterns with “star” included in their names and the snowflake sampler are especially unique, modern interpretations.
Oh, and let me take a second to tell you that I had a finish and posted about that yesterday: Wanta Fanta – Finished! I’d be very happy if you hopped over to take a peek and maybe even leave me a comment :)
See you next week!
