Autumn Squares Quilt

Fall Top

Just in time to see the last leaves turn and fall from the trees, I’ve finished my fall quilt! I started to feel the pressure this week as the wind and rain came and blew so many of the beautiful red leaves away. I considered waiting for a day with blue skies to take my pictures….but hey, this is Chicago and that could be awhile!

I used fabric from my stash for the blocks of this quilt – lots of Amy Butler, with a sprinkling of Lizzy House and Heather Bailey. I originally planned on making this quilt twice as big, but life got in the way so I used the spare squares on the back for a really cool effect. The sashing is Stone by Bella Solids. I love how it has the look of linen without being linen.

I quilted it free motion style but further apart than I usually do because I wanted it to be a it looser. My husband says this is his favorite quilt so far, which surprised me because he wasn’t all about it when I was making it. It measures 62″ x 44″.

    We don’t get fall here in Cali. the way you do, I miss all the beautiful fall colors. Your quilt captures the fall season perfectly. It makes me want to snuggle up to a fire with a good book and cup of hot cocoa!!

    NICE! And it gives me a good idea for how to use some fabric I just ordered which didn’t have quite enough contrast for what I planned to do with it. Good tip on the Bella solids too.
