Happy Fall Quilt

It's beginning to look like fall is here. Today is the last full day of summer, you would never know it since today it's pouring rain and windy. I'm glad I got this picture outside before the rains had started. This was a panel I cut up and added homespun sashing between the blocks. I really had to do a lot of cutting to get all the blocks the same size and because of the layout on the panel every block was on bias......grrrrr. I don't like panels but I'm happy I put this one together anyway.

This is one of my favourite blocks in the quilt. I'm planning to quilt pumpkins on this quilt and I think I have a pumpkin flannel I can put on the back. I love the fall colours!

Happy Fall!

Cute idea! I have two Fall panels somewhere in the great stash. I thought they were cute when I bought them but didn't do anything with them for the same reason as you ..... not crazy about panels. Still . . . . .

Wonderful Fall quilt Wendy! Fantastic idea to cut up a panel and I love the colors you've chosen for those sashing strips! Yummy!

Seriously cute, Wendy! Great use of the panel. :-)

They would be adorable stitchery blocks, too. :-)

Wow. That's a panel? When I first saw it I thought it was applique! I think since the blocks are small it isn't noticeable that it is a panel. I really love this quilt and think it was worth the cutting headaches. The homespuns you add are just exactly right. This is my favorite time of year, so I love these kinds of quilts. Very warm and comfy!!
