While it isn’t officially winter yet, we are definitely on the down side of autumn. I know there is a reason the official dates exist, but to me, winter is November, December, January, and February. Spring is March, April and May. Summer is June, July and August. And Autumn is September and October.
And since my autumn is pretty much done, I figured I should get some autumn projects squared away. One of which is the Autumn in the Country quilt top.
I had the centre done, I just needed to whip through some borders.
And whip through them I did.
If I’m being honest, this is a quilt I royally screwed up. I was more or less following the Summer in the Park tutorial. However, I have a bad habit of skipping through and not watching the whole thing.
If I had, I would have seen that they used two jelly rolls – one print, one plain. I split my jelly roll into colours and neutrals, which meant I was already down on the number of squares I’d be able to make. That wasn’t a huge deal, it was only intended to be a couch quilt anyway. But then I went and cut a bunch of the squares wrong, and sadly, there was no salvaging them. So my centre ended up being much smaller than planned.
But luckily, in one of Craftsy’s 60% off sales, I was able to get more of the white fern, and green farmhouse fabrics to build it out with borders
I love that farmhouse fabric so much, that I grabbed enough of the white version for the backing.
So that’s another top out of my WIP pile (and on to Mom’s!)
Do you think I can finish another top before I start something new? Should we take bets?
