$5 in August – Gingham Style Leaf Quilt Pattern

Now that August is here, I’ve put away the red + white + blue quilts and am SO ready for the transition into fall. It gets quite toasty here in the desert where I live, so I really start to get excited once August hits and I know the unbearably hot days are numbered. When I hung the Gingham Style leaf quilt on the quilt ladder last night, it just felt right to make it the new $5 pattern of the month.

Quilt Details
