Fall is in the air!

It is finally getting cooler in New England and this quilt reminds me off fall's crisp, cool days and showers of colorful leaves floating all around. It was made for a challenge for the fiber art group I belong to, Sisters In Cloth. We had to use the color red somewhere in our design and limit the size of the quilt. I usually have a hard time with red since it isn't my go to color, but I'm learning to love it.
The leaves were a technique from Frieda Anderson in American Quilter Magazine, but the coloration is mine. I like how the blues and oranges and greens reflect the colors of falling leaves.
