Fall Finish

Are you in the mood for a fall quilt?  I sure was.  This is Lucy.  This is what you get when you piece 61 twenty-five  patch blocks and 60 snowball blocks, using a variety of orange, black and gray fabric from a cadre of designers and fabric companies.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 142
The pattern is Lucy by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co
It finished at 74" x 74"
It has approximately 1,889 pieces.

This quilt has already been quilted by the amazing Diane Tricka

If you would like to piece your own version of Lucy, the pdf pattern is available here, for only $3!

If you would like to piece your own Lucy, exactly like this Lucy,  you can, a limited number of kits are available here.  This quilt was made from the kits offered by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Even though I normally piece fall quilts in the fall, I was thrilled to piece this sample for Carrie, the variety of oranges alone put a smile on my face.  I think it will do the same for you!

  15. I really love this quilt,, being a big fan of Halloween and autumn. Your work is beautiful.

  16. Love this quilt! By the time I got your blog update (always a day after you post it, don't know why that is) the kits were gone. I did purchase the pattern, however. It will be fun shopping for the fabrics. Quick question, if you have time to answer. Did you press your seams open or to one side?
