Can you believe it was just last Thursday that I shared this new QAYG idea and by Sunday night this quilt was finished! This pattern is that quick and I'll be sharing the tutorial for it on Monday, if all goes well this weekend.
But for today, I just want to share my pretty, new finished quilt. I love it so much! It's like my own personal, cozy library of Anna Maria Horner fabrics. There is such harmony in her collections, and this quilt includes at least a few strings from nearly all that I have stashed over the years!
The warmth and boldness of Anna's colors feel like Autumn to me, so I backed this one with her soft Folksy Flannel, and named it my Autumn Herringbone Quilt to leave on the sofa for the season.
Keeping with that theme I chose a very Fall-ish variegated thread by Aurifil, my favorite, for all of my quilting and for when I machine stitched on my AMH scrappy binding!
Here in Potter County we are just about a week away from when the Fall foliage is in full flourish. One of our most favorite spots to see the beauty of this season is at a lookout just a fifteen minute drive from our house. I couldn't dream of a better backdrop for this quilt! We figured we were a little early to catch peak viewing time for the vibrant Autumn foliage, but it was worth the try!
The sun was bright and changing fast, and we left with just a few good shots. I wish you could have been there!
Back at home I took a few more close up photos to share just how pretty this quilt is! My favorites are those strings of Anna's extra soft voile & flannel and I love this scrappy binding!
I'm already ready to make another!! How about you, do you think you'll give this pattern a try?
