Harvest Time

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.

The paper pattern will be available for shipping next week.  The PDF is available now and can be found here.  You can find the paper pattern for order here, though it won’t ship out till next week.

Now I am in the mood to make some more fall quilts!!!

    Ohhhhh…….how beautiful these are! The new colors are great. Bet this new quilt looks wonderful in your living room.

  4. Love the little quilt with the Frolic. I’m using up the last of my stashed Frolic to make a cute baby quilt.

    Wow——love the pattern, but most amazing is that I have all the fabric in my stash shown in the orignal quilt. Some of them I hate to use as then they would be gone.

  9. Very sweet! I really like the orange houndstooth fabric. ~Fun!

    Love the “updated” version……the use of quilting stitches is definitely “today” and it creates awesome texture!!! Definitely a “keeper”!!! Hugs…….

    Heather, this pattern is cute but now it is really cute in the new colors. I really like this and the quilting is beautiful.

  12. Shelly says:

    Love the new one! Isn’t it amazing what different fabrics can do to a pattern? As always Heather, so talented! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Chris says:

    Heather, I LOVE them all! I can’t believe you did one in a weekend, with a baby to watch as well. 🙂 Great job in using stash fabric to make such an adorable quilt.

  14. Linda P says:

    I actually do have this pattern and STILL want to make it – maybe I can still get it done (or just the top by the end of fall). Looks so cute in the updated fabrics also. I’ll be busy getting more fall items out next week – I’m a bit late………

    You could make this in red and green, or blue and silver with a Christmas applique motif. So cute!
