As we ease our way into spring, it’s great to have this expanded pattern from the AQS Love to Quilt series!

Fall Into Spring is an award-winning quilt designed and made by Cheryl See in 2007. Cheryl used hand appliqué techniques, and you can use your favorite appliqué method to bring this 57½ x 57½ beauty to life.

The pattern includes humongo folded sheets inside that give you all the patterns full-size! Complete instructions, including optional trapunto and cording methods, are also on these big sheets. Cheryl notes that the fabrics in the original quilt are Marimekko® but that any gradated fabrics will work just as well, or you can piece to achieve the same effect.

If you’d like to win this pattern, please leave a comment here on the blog before 7:00 p.m. California time on Wednesday, March 5. Open to U.S. and Canada mailing addresses only. (Remember, emails won’t enter the drawing.)

Good luck everyone!
Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    Oh my gosh! That is gorgeous! I would love to take on the challenge of creating this quilt (well, it would be a bit of a challenge for me!) Thanks so much for a chane at the give-away.

    It’s a beautiful quilt and one worth repeating in one’s own fabrics.

  4. Kevin B. on March 1st, 2014 6:14 am

    I’ve admired that quilt ever since I’ve seen it, but always wondered what it would look like in more traditional, earth-tones. If I win, I’ll get my chance!

    I love this! We don’t have seasons here in Houston. We have hot and not as hot. I enjoy the seasons through my quilts.
