I would like to first thank Joan of Moosse Stash Quilting for hosting this Hop. Fall is my favorite time of year. The brilliant change of colors, the fruits and veggies of the season, the smells, and the cooler temps.
This hop was perfect to push a finish on a quilt top that I made during Carol's "Autumn Jubilee" quilt along last year. She is hosting another Jubilee all October and you can read about it HERE.
A fun row quilt of Fall inspired blocks. To compliment it I added a patch work of green wovens for the outer border and just quilted with a large open meander in a thread called "Corn Silk". Hey, they are harvesting the feed corn now in our valley - so it seemed appropriate.
My favorite blocks were the fussy cut for the stars and scrappy clean up for the points.
I had this rust, orange backing in my stash for many years (Connecting Threads 'Heritage Bouguet') and glad I found a quilt to use it with. I used it for the binding, too - a little more orange to round it out.
