Autumn Forest Quilt, Finished

...and ready to be given to the H family grandparents for Christmas:

This quilt measures 68" x 80" and was long-arm machine quilted by Dar of Dar's Patchwork Garden, using a panto called Falling Leaves. I'm pleased with how it turned out, especially the graphic effect created by the light and dark values. This quilt is all labeled and ready to go.

The blocks in this quilt were the Alternate block in the 2014-15 "Fox in the Forest" BOM series at a LQS. The Main blocks and the Alternate blocks together would have made a king size quilt, which I didn't need, so I made two quilts out of the two sets of blocks.

Here's the other quilt made from the Main blocks in the same BOM series, which I've shown previously. This one will also be a Christmas gift, for the H family parents who host all of our big get-togethers. It's going to be a very quilty Christmas around here.

Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts. 


  1. I like the dark binding - it frames it so well! How are your hands doing? Does colder weather affect you any more?

  2. Congrats on two beautiful finishes.

  3. Jan, both of your quilts look so nice. Thanks for the QOV blocks too. I was wondering if you did them all or were part of the piecing group. I guess this answers that question. I will post an update tomorrow.

  4. That is bigger than I expected. Congrats on the finish.
