Almost Done with the Autumn Quilt

I've been trucking along on the autumn quilt.  It's almost done!  I just have the borders left to do.  The inner border is the gold fabric, the middle border is the burnt orange, and the outer border is a leaf pattern with many of the colors featured in this quilt.  

Since this is going to be a queen size quilt, I think I'm going to send this one out to be quilted by someone with a long arm.  My co-worker has a friend who does long arm quilting professionally, so I might give her a try.  I'm thinking an all over pantograph with leaves in it.  

This quilt has really grown on me.  Initially I wasn't super fond of some of the colors (ok, just the burnt orange), but I'm really liking how this is coming out.  The pattern was very easy to do and I think it's really coming together visually very well.  


  1. I like how this is turning out. Queen size quilts are definitely large to do on a home sewing machine. If you are ever looking for a long arm quilter, you can give me a try sometime. Check out my work on my website. I have been in business for 9 years and really enjoy what I do. Just a thought no pressure whatsoever. Have a great night!

  2. It turned out great. It is growing to be a beautiul quilt.
