It's time for the Sunflower Sisters "Autumn in my Garden" parade! As a refresher, Nicole/Sisters Choice, Lisa/Stashmaster and I saw the completed quilt last year at the Buggy Barn Quilt Show. We all agreed we each needed to make this quilt and if that wasn't fun enough, we decided we also needed to swap fabric to get a really scrappy quilt.
And here is mine. This was a really fun project for me. I made the centers like you would piece a bargello quilt, creating strip sets and then pressing the seams in opposite directions when I sewed the rows so all the blocks would nest and fit together perfectly. I didn't use any pins when I was sewing those rows together.
Once the centers were done it was time to make over 300 red and yellow hsts, my favorite block and I used my favorite method, the Easy Angle. I always make mine bigger and square them up. All the pieces went together perfectly.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 116
The pattern is Autumn in my Garden by Buggy Barn Quilts
It finished at 68" x 84"
It has approximately 2,479 pieces.
One of my favorite things about this quilt is the reindeer fabric that Lisa included in her swap fabric. I have reindeers prancing all across this quilt and it makes me smile every time I see them. It's like life today, here we are enjoying fall but Christmas is starting to show up here and there, a reminder that it's just around the corner.
My Sunflower Sisters, Nicole and Lisa, are blogging about their finishes today too, be sure to check out their tops, each one is just a little bit different from mine.
Lisa and Nicole, it was nothing but fun sewing along with you, let's do it again!!
