Head on over to Leah’s blog to see how to piece Block 4.

Leaf Peepers Pattern Correction:
Both Leah and I were very careful to catch all the issues within the Leaf Peepers Quilt Pattern, but in an early version of the pattern, we missed one small thing for Block 4: In Step 3, the pattern reads: “Pair the following W-HST1, H-HST1, I-HST1, and J-HST1 pieces…” it should read “Pair the following W-HST1, G-HST1, H-HST1, and I-HST1 pieces…”

Once you have Block 4 pieced, it’s time to get your blocks together and basted!

In the pattern, we give instructions for arranging blocks in two ways:

Layout #1 — Table Runner or Wall Hanging
measures 24” x 74”
Leaf Peepers quilt blocks. Easy to piece half square triangle blocks. Make a mini quilt, table runner, wall hanging, twin quilt or queen quilt. Quilt Along with Leah Day and Whole Circle Studio.

Layout #2 — Table Runner or Wall Hanging
measures 40” x 40”
Leaf Peepers quilt blocks. Easy to piece half square triangle blocks. Make a mini quilt, table runner, wall hanging, twin quilt or queen quilt. Quilt Along with Leah Day and Whole Circle Studio.

Use one of our suggested layouts or design your own arrangement!

You can also make additional blocks to make a larger quilt.

Once you piece your quilt top, baste your quilt so that you’re ready to begin quilting with us next week.
