So I have really been in the mood to making some new fall quilts. Since I brightened and lightened my living room, none of my old fall quilts match. Over the weekend, I made this one. I thinks it’s a nice combination of modern colors with some traditional blocks and applique.
The applique is done by machine. I use brown top stitching thread to achieve that hand-done look. Raise your hand if you like houndstooth pumpkins!
(by the way all of these fabrics are from my stash. The orange houdstooth is from my fishy line and can be found here).
This is a remake of an older pattern. It’s been one of my most popular design and is still selling 10 years after its original publishing date – though we are almost out of the original patterns. After making this new color combo, I decided we should keep the pattern going and just print up new fronts using the new quilt.
Here is what the original quilts look like:
The original pattern has two size options, so I remade the smaller size too.
The border fabric is from an older Sandy Gervais line called Frolic.
Now I am in the mood to make some more fall quilts!!!
