$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.
A gingham pattern is a timeless design, and for good reason! (It’s SO cute!) So what do you get when you cross a gingham design with a maple leaf block? Absolute dynamite aka the Gingham Style leaf quilt.

Hi Vanessa! Can I possibly make leaves from a 10” layer cake bundle and cut the darker fabrics from those them as you did from the fat quarters? The largest cut I see is 7”. Only ½ the FQ’s are used so I’m thinking there will be plenty of 10” squares for the pattern?? What do you think?
