An Autumn Sun Quilt Top : :

One week ago I began work on this new quilt top with the colorful September landscape of goldenrod and sunflower fields as my inspiration!

Autumn Sun Quilt Top = done!

I love this medley of yellow, orange, and brown in all their variations, and since this pattern is reminiscent of a sunbeam, I've decided to call this one my Autumn Sun Quilt!

It came together fast, using mostly Bonnie Christine collections and the quick hourglass block making method I use to create my favorite pillows that I share in issue 8 of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine! After using this method with smaller cuts to create my scrappy hourglass quilt in Alison Glass Field Day fabrics with happy results, I've been waiting for the chance to try it again using larger pieces!

I've boxed up this one, along with my Emmy Grace quilt top to be sent off to Sew Shabby Quilting today for some long arm loops and daisies!

I hope to have them back in time to finish and photograph at the same spots that inspired them!

Wishing happy September days to you!

  3. I would never have thought to make a quilt from these colors, but it's gorgeous! And I love the backing fabric and binding, too. It does have a fall feeling to it, but it doesn't look like just a seasonal quilt. You could definitely use it year round!

  10. What a perfect quilt for Autumn! I also have to admit yellow and orange aren't colors I'm comfortable to work with. I should give it a try some time in the future because indeed I've oranges and yellows in my stash! Crazy! Thank you for the inspiration ;-)

  14. Most definitely some of my favorite colors! It reminds me that soon the leaves on the trees will be all of those colors and more! Yes, the name Autumn Sun is so appropriate! So beautiful. I'm looking forward to the autumn sunsets!
