The falling leaf panel is a great place to start….although the tossed maple leaves running yardage is pretty darn nice too. What to do with them? One of Deb’s favourite patterns is in the “Turning Twenty Stained Glass and Scraps” pattern. The panel acts as a centre and then fat quarters are cut up to make a large border.
Northcott’s colours….creams, reds, blacks…are so rich, from tonal ombres to maple leaves in a variety of sizes. Creamy leaves on a rich black or red background. Gold maple leaf “skeletons” tossed over red. Very small leaves peeking out from a similar shade of background colour., just to name a few:
Some many project ideas that come to mind. And of course, Northcott has some suggestions as well: two great patterns. Choose from leaves dancing across a quilt made just in time for cottage/trailer season or pick poppies surrounding our flag, for Remembrance all year long. And the piece de resistance: the With Glowing Hearts Anniversary quilt, a kit that skillfully combines the falling leaf panel AND the label panel (that funny section in the upper left of the photo is a piece of a different version).
And a stripe! Can’t you just picture cutting that on the bias and using it as a binding? Drama on the edge….love it!
We also love the label panel, a perfect addition to the line. What better way to finish off any quilt project than with a label with a Canadian touch. And don’t forget our video on how to make a quilt label.
