My eldest daughter turned 21 at the end of October and it was so lovely celebrating with her in the most inspiring surroundings!
Autumn is such a beautiful season. But it's time to put on an extra layer, turn the thermostat up another few notches, and bring out the cosy quilts.
The November issue of Popular Patchwork is in the shops, and in it you'll find my Autumn Garden Quilt.
This is a small quilt (53" square), but I'm a little bit in love with it (I love curvilicious quilts)!!
For a while now I've been wanting to make the 'drunkard's path' flower, and I think the saturated tones of Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee and Shelburne Falls give these flowers a cosy autumnal feel.
I've used my trusty Essex Yarn Dyed linen (black) for the background and whizzed the fabrics through my Sizzix Drunkard's Path dies (657168 fan background & 657169 quarter circle).
And this quilt could easily translate into another season (think fresh Spring fabrics!).
I hope you are keeping warm and cosy this Autumn!
