Quilt no 13: Summer Days
10.5" square
This quilt is inspired by the Falling Leaves quilt block by Kim Niedzwiecki which I found in Modern Quilting magazine.  I followed her pattern and used some Kaffe Fassett fabrics I bought last year, and some Kona solid white.  The grey on the back I have had for a while. Not sure where I got it. The quilt  is machine pieced and machine quilted.


Been really busy here, so I've not been great at acknowledging photos which have come in. I hope to catch up in the next few days!
