The Lindsleys

 

Fall Leaves

Terry found this pattern at a quilt store in Bend when we were there for the Sisters' Quilt show.  He picked out fabrics for it.  We used cottons for the front and a flannel for the back. I used a wool batting for the first time with it - it is supposed to be warm in winter and cool in summer.

The pattern is Costa Maya, and the quilt measures 72" square.  The blocks measure 9" completed with courthouse steps and a half square triangle.  The quilt is  easier to make than it looks.  The border is the left overs of the courthouse steps blocks and a yellow square.  I used a red / orange / yellow / green variegated thread and quilted oak leaves, heart heaves and loops.
