Autumn Stars Quilt finish!

The desire to reduce my stash of an overwhelming amount of brown fabric, resulted in a frenzy of piecing back in April this year.  
This is the only in progress shot I have, because the top went together so quickly.  The only hold up was finding the right border fabric!
  Quilted in an all over leaf pattern by Vicki Jenkin.  Sorry I must start writing down the names of the quilting patterns she uses, because I did spend a lot of time choosing this one!

There isn't enough room inside my house to take photos of this quilt, as it turned out so large!  Besides it deserved a follow up outdoor shot, now the garden is in spring mode!
Two finishes in two weeks, folks.  But it is all coming to an end, as I have not and will not have much sewing time of late due to work and personal commitments, especially as the silly season is basically upon us.
Rest assured I will be looking towards more finishes, but just planning them for 2017 ; )
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. It's beautiful! What size are the large squares and how wide is the sashing? I recently finished a baby version of this quilt in a jumble of bright fabrics. I think it has become one of my favorite patterns.

  2. a lovely quilt Sue.... and a great way to use up your browns. repeat blocks are so effective...

  4. My favourite quilt you've made Sue. Love this one so much.
