Free pattern: Fall Forest Floor
Take a stroll through our Fall Forest Floor quilt pattern and immerse yourself in the beauty of autumn! This pattern captures the essence of a colorful, crisp fall walk with a unique twist. It creates an illusion of a blanket of leaves on the forest floor, with 3-D leaves scattered on top.
The process includes multiple stages – first, quilt the checkerboard base, followed by raw-edge fusible appliqué, and finally, secure the finished-edge dimensional leaf appliqués.
Pro tip: this pattern is perfect for experimenting with different color distributions.
Finished size: 17 1/2″ x 57 1/2″
