Leafs Me [Sew] Happy...Day 5

Welcome to the 5th day on the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop, and my stop on the train! Once again I had more ideas than time on hand, but I did my best to focus and get something accomplished!

Every Color Leaf Tree...
I just love how this Leafy tree block turned out!  If you cannot tell I am really into rainbows these days.  Although I made the leaves from the remains from THIS past project.  The trunk base came from Shrinking down the Family Tree Pattern by Lilac Lane, cutting it down to 2 branches.  I plan on making the wall hanging before the end of the year, so I was excited to atleast try out the trunk (super easy).  I plan to make this block into a pillow cover; I am half-way tempted to change my plan for Ziona's bedroom from Yellow, white, gray & Black to Rainbows!  I really loved the Dotty star I made for the Dots On Dots Blog Hop which enticed me to making the leaves rainbowy for this block.


Leaves...On the Forest Floor
It all started out with my making leafy blocks for this hop from my precious stash of Sandy Gervais fabrics.  From those blocks I decided to make a quilt for a fundraiser for the preschool at my church.  I found a pattern online that actually used the big leaf blocks that I had already made-up called Forest Floor.  I had a couple block left to show you, but they somehow got misplaced so I am sharing the full quilt to show you.

"Forest Floor" Modified from the Pattern (Found HERE)

A look at the back of the Quilt

A Close-Up of my Swirling Wind FMQ
I did a search last night for some other patterns to direct fall enthusiasts towards.  A Blog Came up with a collection which actually includes a couple of the patterns I used myself!  You can peruse that post HERE.

I have delayed my Finishes post until  tomorrow, so come back to see all that I have completed this week!
