Today was the first day of fall, even though you wouldn't have guessed it from the heat and humidity! Still, the changing calendar made me think of pulling out my fall quilts. I only have those out until early December, when Christmas quilts get their turn, so I need to pull them out now to enjoy them for a few months.
I thought I'd share one of those for my second Blogger's Quilt Festival entry. Here is Autumn Moons, finished in August 2013 but still one of my favourites.
I was practicing curves and had to do something with those practice blocks!
Like many of my quilts, this one was quilted with a walking foot. It involves lots of turning and smooshing of the quilt through the throat of my domestic sewing machine, but it gets the job done nicely! Marking curves and following along with the walking foot gives me a much smoother and precise arc than I am able to achieve with freemotion quilting. I like tidy and neat :)
I hope you will pop over to the Blogger's Quilt Festival to be inspired by all the quilts. It's quite a collection of all sizes, styles and colors!
