#fallintoaqal finish at last. I made two each of a couple of the blocks, contrasting light and dark backgrounds, and used up all the teeny HSTs leftover from the various blocks in this quilt to size it up. My husband loves its traditional fall colors, and the flannel backing. Win win if fall ever arrives here! Thanks to the hostesses for a great set of designs, tips and inspiration! #fallintoaqal#allthingsautumn#bringonthefrost#quiltsofinstagram
There's just under a week left to share your #fallintoaqal quilt top. Here's mine! I framed all of the blocks so they're guaranteed to be the same size, and made a diamond sashing that's way easier than it looks. Link to the full tutorial is in my profile.
I just realized that I never shared my final #fallintoaqal block! This lovely owl was designed by @vanda.chittenden. I had so much fun choosing my colors for this block. The pattern is free until November 12. Link in profile.
Here is my Fall into a QAL quilt top. What a wonderful time I had in the Quilt Along. To see my setting blog https://www.jandabendquilts.com/blog/fall-into-a-qal-quilt-along-quilt-setting #fallintoaqal#jandabendquilts
Block 11 of the #fallintoaqal. I love barns and really enjoyed piecing this block while contemplating making a whole quilt with the block pattern. It is my rendering of a night setting on a pumpkin farm. The block was designed by @sparkleonwithabbie! #barn#barndoor#autumn
I can hardly believe we're already on block 11 of #fallintoaqal! This week's block was designed by @sparkleonwithabbie. It's quick and fun to make. My blog post has tops for success, including my favorite tip for selecting colors. Link in profile.
“Autumn Harvest Barn” Block 11 of the #fallintoaqal designed by me, Abbie Danahy. It is pleasure and honor to be a pattern designer of The Fall Into a QAL. Thank you fellow #quiltypartnersindesign for your guidance and support. Thank you to all the participants, you’re awesome! 😊💕
My sashing units are all kitted and ready to sew for my Fall into a Quilt Along setting. Block 11 goes live at midnight tonight, then it's just two short weeks until the final block and grand reveal. I can't wait for you to see the finished top! My setting is deceptively easy and forgiving, while looking spectacular. If you're looking to join in, my quilt along page has all the info.

Gobble gobble. #fallintoaqal I went to my very first quilt retreat with so many projects. This 12” block is all I accomplished (and the finish happened once I returned home!). There are only 104 pieces parts in this block-counting the eye. I attached pictures of the Ohio River and Clifty Falls State Park! Good times, great people!! Thank you Karen Thurn of @tunaquilts for this darling design.
Block 10 in the #fallintoaqal - Patchwork Pickles. My jars have pickles and relish in them. I cut the fabric for the second jar too small and did not have enough for the full size, so this one is a pint of relish.
A bountiful harvest means plenty of canned goods squirreled away for winter. Block 10 of #fallintoaqal is #patchworkpickles designed by @sandrahealydesigns. I added my own little spin on the block by making a shelf for the jars to rest on. Check out the blog for a link to the free pattern and a tutorial to add your own beveled shelf to the block.

Next block for my fall quilt! I haven't had much to post recently because I have been fixing a quilt I made a few years back that i quilted really poorly, and is now falling apart..no fun at all, but at least it is evidence that I have improved since then... But this block was a welcome change of pace! So much fun! I love what can be made with applique. Thank you to @sandrahealydesigns for this fun block. #fallintoaqal#quilting#applique#freepattern#freequal#canning#sandrahealydesigns
