I started with the most yummy selection of colors. Bright yellows, purply-reds and oranges. It’s my homage to a happy fall color palette.

I own a midarm machine. Unfortunately, it is in need of repairs, so I went to the local quilt shop and quilted it up with a huge meander. I wanted the piecing and design to be the star of the show.

I still have some of the fabrics leftover and I will be making another quilt with this same combination.

bias binding

I’m not sure if my favorite part is the checked bias binding, the huge checked background or the stripes on the front.

back sharpened

I matched the backing seam off by one row, because I think that is an interesting detail. It’s always the details that make a design interesting.

The day I set aside to take pictures of the quilt, it was raining and raining. ALL. DAY. LONG. The weather app said there was going to be a break for about an hour. But it didn’t happen. My boys go back to school next week, so they were my helpers. They stood in the rain as we went from place to place without too much grumbling. They are the sweetest. It’s nice that my older son is now taller than me. His long arms make for great quilt holding. And my younger son held the umbrella for me.

  1. I absolutely adore your quilt! The design, the palette, the backing and binding, THE STRIPES….all inspired. I’d love to share a photo in my upcoming newsletter – would that be ok? I’d link back of course….REALLY lovely work.

  2. A beautiful quilt. I love the pieced top and the fact that the quilting doesn’t overwhelm the quilt. Can’t wait for the pattern.
