Welcome to the Leaf Peepers Quilt Along!
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.
All of the videos for this quilt along have been posted, but you can still join in the fun anytime! All you need is the quilt pattern available here. Learn more about Leaf Peepers in this new video:
