Fall Into A Quilt Along Block Eight

Today brings a fantastic pattern for block 8 in the Fall Into A QAL.

Jennifer Fulton of Inquiring Quilter, has designed the Autumn Leaf block, it is a paper pieced block and super easy and quick to make. Jennifer kindly included a beginners version of the block, for anyone who might not be familiar to the technique. I decided to make the original leaf.

I wasn’t easy choosing oranges and yellow for this wonderful block, as I am fast running out of oranges and yellows. But I am determined to only use from my stash.

Here is my leaf.

Full instructions is in the pattern that you will download.

You can download the pattern here.

As I am planning to quilt as you go for this quilt. The same as I did last year.

  1. I really like the fabrics you chose. They make a great leaf.

  2. Your block turned out great! Oh, dear running out of fall colored fabric could be a problem.

  3. Your leaf looks great! I never would have guessed that you’re getting to the bottom of your stash. The fabrics complement each other perfectly.

  4. Can anyone assist me in access block 8? I am unable to find the link to download it?

      Hi Stephanie, underneath the picture on the block. Click on the words “download pattern here”.

  5. I love your block and that you are using your stash! I hope you have enough to get to the end of the QAL! Sometimes it is tempting to skip that to do something else.


  6. Lovely block! Although you are running out of yellow and orange, you managed to find some great ones for this block.

  7. Vanda, your stash is working with you on this block. The colors are warm and wonderful. Very inspiring to hear you are using your stash. Feels good to work with what we have!
