Autumnal quilt

I made this quilt for my step-sister's 50th birthday last year. I didn't blog it. I should have, it's nice!

The patching was done using a Moda charm pack, I forget which one. To get the patches 7 x 10, to make a decent sized lap quilt, I needed to add some complimentary block colours in craft cotton.

The quilting was stitch the ditch- I wanted to keep it simple and let the colours do the talking.

The quilt's colours are quite autumnal. As there's nowhere quite like the Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens in autumn. We headed there to take some photos of it. We were trying to be a bit "arty" and capture the light and leaves. Not sure we really managed it.


The kids had a great time helping to take the photos.
