The quilt top came together very quickly. I had it quilted by Liz Meiman of A Quilted Memory, one of only two quilts I have been able to send out to a longarmer. I wanted simple outlining in the chevrons, and Liz stitched in the ditch in the leaves and quilted a dense filler behind the leaves. The black is quilted with a falling leaf motif.
I don't get to snuggle with this one this fall, as it is hanging in my trunk show at the Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa, along with several other quilts. I hope you'll pop in and see them in person if you're in the area.
Now, please pop on over to the quilt festival to see all the other lovely quilts on display. Remember to go back and vote for your favourites later this week.
A beautiful quilt - love those rich colours! I love mixing and matching fabrics from different ranges, it's surprising sometimes what goes together!ReplyDelete
This is a gorgeous quilt! I'd think so even if my favorite color wasn't orange. Love the design! ~JeanneReplyDelete
Mmmm! I love that one too. I love orange and black and I love it even more when the colours are used in something that is not Halloween related. Your quilt really convey the fall season. Good luck! ;^)ReplyDelete
