Summer Quilt and Fall Table Runner

I had big plans to have this quilt finished by now. Things happened and so the quilt didn't get done. I've got all the blocks pieced and now ready for putting it all together. I just love this fabric (Flower Sugar), I found it on Daisy Cottage Quilting site and just had to have some. I'm using the pattern from Schnibbles book called Bennington (below), the large version, it goes quickly with the big blocks. It's a very happy summery quilt.

And then I'm also thinking of fall, it's coming soon. I love the fall colours. A friend and I are making this together for another dear friend and we both love it so much we decided to make one for ourselves. The maple leaf block came from this site, it's block 4 of a bigger quilt.
I have big plans to get both of these projects done very soon, wish me luck.
Happy Quilting.

How stunning the batik with the leaves are... What a wonderful quilt for the fall it will make... Are the leaves apliqued or fused on? Love both projects... :)

I love Benninton with Flower Sugar. I have Flower Sugar and I'm undecided about what to make with it. Very sweet summer quilt, Wendy.

The table runner is beautiful.

I like the "Flour Sugar" name. Makes me think of feed sack quilts.

Wendy said...

Beautiful work! Thank you for sharing the maple leaf block too! I'm becoming a follower of your blog because I just HAVE to see this finished! Gorgeous!!

Both are lovely - and quite different from each other. Isn't quilting fun that way?

I love both projects your working on Wendy. But you know I love that Flower Sugar the best. It's so happy isn't it?
The Fall leaves are so pretty they remind me of when we used to find leaves and put them between waxed paper and a book. Did you do that too??

Botn quilts are lovely, the weather has been cool and rainy lately here so I too have been trying to finish up started projects. Please post pictures when you finish.

Flower sugar sounds like great fabric. And the batiks in your other project are beautiful.

Prety flower sugar. I still have my fat quarters waiting for me to figure out a project! Gorgeous leaves and batiks. I heart Fall.
