Freefall Quilt Along

Welcome to my first Quilt Along.  Thank you to Paintbrush Studio Fabrics for providing the fabric for my quilt as well as a fat quarter stack of the same gorgeous fabrics that one lucky quilter can win in the final link-up.
This quilt can be made in a variety of colourways.  The first one I made was in Fall colours and finished at 50".  I plan to release a pattern for it in a couple of months.
Note that there are a few real autumn leaves sprinkled on and around the quilt!  These are also Paintbrush Studio Fabrics called Windfall.  Link to this quilt, Windfall is here.

This one is made in soft Spring colours and finishes at 38".

Here is the schedule for the quilt along.  Links will be updated as the quilt along progresses.  There are over $250 worth of prizes to be won for the final link-up of your flimsy or quilt top!
