Rise and Shine quilt + Playful Precut Quilts book

Is it starting to feel a little more like fall yet where you live?  I've been noticing how much earlier the sun is setting lately, and today it's only supposed to be around 57 degrees.  That's a welcome change to the 100+ temps we've been having lately!

Today I get to share an all-solids quilt with you in some fall-ish colors.  It's been so fun to work with a little different color combination (for me.)  Usually I'm sewing with red, navy, aqua and / or green.  Some times you just have to switch things up, ya know?

For this quilt I used a pattern called Rise and Shine, from the new book, Playful Precut Quilts by Amanda Niederhauser (Jedi Craft Girl).  

This is her first book and it's SO good!  It's filled with 15 different projects - all using precuts.  And one of the great things about the book is that all of the blocks are 12" so they can be mixed, matched, and inter-changed.  I love that!  

For my version of the Rise and Shine pattern I used this bundle of Kona cotton solids (colors are from top down: Ice Peach, Foxglove, Plum, Everglade, Sage, Seafoam, Sienna, Salmon, Butterscotch, Mustard)

Here's Amanda's original Rise and Shine quilt, made with the bright and cheerful Welsummer fabrics by Cotton + Steel.

I think it's so fun to see how different a quilt looks when the fabrics are changed!  I did also choose to do a single border in the same gray I used for the sashing (Kona Shitake).

I backed the quilt in a snuggly gray minky, and used some simple wavy line quilting to keep the focus on the blocks.  And for the binding I used the Everglade Kona solid.
