Leaf Peepers Quilt Along

Leaf Peepers Quilt AlongIt's time for a new Quilt Along! I'm super excited to announce the new Leaf Peepers Quilt Along starting on August 13th!

This beautiful quilt pattern was designed by Sheri Cilfaldi-Morrill from Whole Circle Studio and is a terrific skill builder for traditional piecing and quilting techniques. You'll learn two methods for piecing half square triangles, how to piece quarter square triangles, and how to machine quilt with three types of quilting: walking foot, free motion, and ruler foot quilting.

For this autumn themed quilt you can choose to create a 40-inch square wall hanging or a 24 x 74-inch table runner. I can't wait to use this beautiful table runner and enjoy these bright colors through the fall season.

As with all of my quilt alongs, you can work at your own pace and get help through every step of the process as we quilt along together from August to October. Learn more about Leaf Peepers in this new video:

How do you join in the fun? 

All you need to do is pick up a copy of the Leaf Peeper's Quilt Pattern available here.

    I bought the batik pack and am starting to cut but am struggling with which yellow is which. Any hints?

    Hi Peggy – You’re welcome to share to Instagram and tag Sheri and I if you have an account. You can also post your picture online to Facebook or Pinterest and send us a link. Basically – whatever works for you!

  • Peggy Bruns - August 13, 2018

    I can’t seem to find the link to post our finished blocks. I thought I remember reading something about that.

  • Leah Day - August 06, 2018

    That’s great Bonnie! All you need to do is pick up a copy of the quilt pattern linked above and you’ll be good to go!

  • Bonnie Musselman - August 06, 2018

    I’d like to join this quilt-along. Thank you.

    Great question Alice! Sheri will be teaching walking foot quilting. I’m going to share free motion quilting and ruler foot quilting, but you could also take my design ideas, mark the lines on the quilt, and quilt with a walking foot instead. So please understand there’s many different ways you can quilt the Leaf Peepers Quilt!

  • Alice Harris - July 18, 2018

    Thanks for your speedy reply. Will you be talking about using your walking foot instead?

  • Leah Day - July 18, 2018

    Hi Alice – The rulers are optional and you only need them if you want to try ruler foot quilting on the Leaf Peepers Quilt. You can also do walking foot quilting or regular free motion quilting instead. If you do decide to use the rulers, yes, you will need a ruler foot to fit your machine.

    What do not have a basic ruler kit. Do I have to buy one, thus I would need a new part for my sewing machine. Thank you Alice
