According to the calendar and
and the view outside it is still Autumn
here in Colorado.
Yes, we've had one snow flurry and
it won't be long before we have more, but
for the moment,
if I show you a new fall quilt
it is still in the seasonal boundaries.
Pumpkins and Blossoms
66" x 78"
This quilt is an example of a perfect quilting storm.
My LQS was having a sale,
I bought a layer cake of Fig Tree's fabric,
Pumpkins and Blossoms,
and I had this pattern from
Fat Quarter Shop,
and FQ Shop also had yardage of
the Fig Tree fabric.
I had not bought a group of fabric
for a very long time.
I'm not sure what possessed me to do it
this time, but the soft oranges and green vines,
charcoal greys and black and frolicking deer
just spoke to me.
It is one of Joanna's classic vintage Autumn lines.
The pattern is simple and easy
to whip together some fun blocks
using a layer cake and charm pack.
I added some borders to make the quilt a bit larger
and had my fabulous machine quilter
stitch an overall pumpkin and vine design.
It was a fun quilt to stitch from start to finish
using a single collection.
I just put the sewing on cruise control and
let it all happen.
