FO: Autumn a-whirl

Another top quilted!

This one has been hanging about since the beginning of January, so it’s nice to finally have it off the to-do list.

It was made from about 2.5 batik charm packs, with a nice thick batik border. The nine-patches, before I cut them up, were put together at random. Once you cut them, and rearrange, it gives a totally crazy, swirl of colour and pattern.

Even though this one was so busy, I got a little fancy with the quilting….

…adding a few heart shaped-leaves with my standard loops. I used a warm, gold coloured thread that went well with every fabric in the quilt.

The binding was just more of the border batik – I had a big chunk of it, so I figured why go searching for something else. The back was another clearance bin find. I was tempted to put a batik on the back, but batiks are quite spendy compared to other fabrics. And the clearance fabric was only $4 a yard… it’s hard to pass that up.

It’s not a big quilt – about 52″ x 64″.

… but folded up, it makes a nice little cover for the blanket box at the end of the bed. And it’s handy for those chilly nights when I need an extra layer.

And now, the pile of unquilted tops is down to two! I’m hoping to knock out another one this week.

    The quilt is just beautiful. Wonderful colors and I think that border fabric picks up every color in the pieced portion of the quilt. Really like the binding of the border fabric. You have really expanded on your quilting and the hearts are pretty.
