It's that time of the year again! Amy is hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. If you're visiting here for the first time, welcome!
This time I'm sharing a quilt that I just completed yesterday-- my Autumn Jewels quilt. I've written some progress posts here and here. The solid fabrics are Oakshott shot cottons, which are so dreamy to work with. This particular grouping is from the Autumn Colour Pack. The "neutrals" in the background are a mix of prints that I had in my stash. I bound the quilt in leather Essex cotton/linen yarn dye. It measures out to 52 x 56 inches.
When I first started making this quilt, I was trying to do something different than what I am normally drawn to-- improvisational piecing. Cutting all of the triangles and half rectangles was a lesson in patience. But I'm so glad I decided to give it a try.
This was a really fun quilt to complete! Just in time, as the last day of school was yesterday too! Have a great weekend. And don't forget to check out the other quilts in the festival!
