Autumn Blooms + a giveaway

One of my most recent finishes is this Autumn Blooms quilt.  I have a tutorial for this quilt over on Riley Blake’s Cutting Corners College today!  See the tutorial here OR download and print the pattern here.

The colors along our river trail are so pretty right now – we had to take a little walk yesterday to enjoy them.  I’ll be so sad when all of the leaves have fallen from the trees.  A little piece of me dies when the snow starts to fall!

The quilt finished at about 59” x 67”.  In my opinion, it’s the perfect reading-a-good-book-in-winter size quilt.  I’m a little sad that I’m not keeping this one.  It’s going to soon be heading to the home of one of my favorite people.

For the quilting I did one of my favorites – small loops scattered throughout a loose all-over meandering.  It flows so nicely as I’m doing the quilting and the finished look is nice and soft.

I’m really such a fan of this Marguerite line.  It’s so feminine and pretty!  I’m not normally big on yellow, but I’m really in love with this red/yellow combination. 

Wanna make an Autumn Blooms quilt for yourself?  How ‘bout a giveaway to get you started? 

I have a stack of 9 fat quarters all from the Marguerite line ready to mail to one of you lucky readers!

  1. Beautiful quilt! And I love your simple quilting. Better get ready for that snow . . . I think it's coming tonight. ;) My favorite season is spring . . . after a long winter, it feels good to wake up and come out of hibernation. Fall is a close second because of all the colors. Thanks for the chance.

  3. The quilt is lovely and I'll have to try your simple meander/loop quilting myself. Looks like one I could handle. I love fall when the weather finally cools down here in So. California. We've had more than enough heat this year. Thanks for the giveaway.
