Several members of my quilting group tried the Quilt in a Day pattern to make an autumn leaf table runner. Everyone seemed to have great success, especially with all the diagrams to follow. They used a variety of fabrics.
There was a really good variety of leaves made. The final leaf shown only used 2 fabrics for the leaves, and fussy cut the pink and green areas from one piece of fabric. Several of the quilters enjoyed the project so much, they are making more, with one making a runner and 4 place mats to match. The only complaint was over the slipperyness of the templates, but that was solved with a bit of "Invisigrip" added to the back.
