  It all started when I saw a wonderful pile of leaves outside my kitchen window. (which have now blown away)  We are finally having a beautiful sunny fall. Most of the leaves have now fallen but the golden hue in the valley with the sporadic green of evergreens is still beautiful to look at. These colours inspired me to make a fall quilt. (like I need another project")

DSCN7740My "leaves" were these bits and pieces of fabrics.  Inspired by Bonnie Hunter's crumb piecing method.  (

 DSCN7741I got to work using up almost this whole basket  of crumbs. It was full to start.

DSCN7742 They turned into these 4" blocks! Once you get stared it is hard to stop.



Some blocks became even bigger as I grabbed some strips and kept adding.


These are now 12"blocks.DSCN7745

I am winging it as I go, I don't know how this will turn out.  Not sure of the size, the lay out or anything. 

Kind of like a pile of leaves blowing around, who knows how they will land!  Stay tuned to see how this turns out!!!
