A pop of color to celebrate the beginning of Autumn - aka my favorite season.
Squared finished just in time to catch the changing colors of leaves and the first chill of the Autumn nights.
A view of the front:
The front consisted of 288 squares - each 3" when completed. A nice combination of bright autumn colors :).
A view of the back:
The back repeated the 3" squares using 2 strips to contrast the off-white solid. I love bright splash of color against the solid back drop.
For this quilt I decided to try tying it off with knots instead of quilting with machine or by hand. The reasoning was not to intrude the small squares and also to give the quilt a more rustic/earthy/loose feel. Here's a closeup of the finished knots:
From the Front:
Each row, I alternated the embroidery color - auburn/orange and green. Each intersection of the front had a knot.
From the Back:
The knot pattern created a nice 'x' in the back for every knot. This gave the back a nice decorated and purposeful look.
For the border I went with a matching maroon/dark red printed fabric. It went perfectly with the color scheme:
This quilt is definitely a fun and pretty reminder of the season ahead. I look forward to using it around the house for a splash of color and warmth when needed.
