Finished Autumn Glow Quilt in Solids

Sunday, December 5, 2021

 Well hello there!
It's been a while since I've posted here on the blog so I wanted to check in 
and tell you that I'm still here and I have some finished projects I'd like to share with you 
over the next few weeks!  Today I want to share my finished Autumn Glow quilt in solids.

Unfortunately, I don't know the names of the solids I used.
I need to do better about writing them down beforehand!
But basically, I used a terracotta color, a cream, a dark brown (all shown above)
plus I ended up throwing in a tan fabric that I had in my stash.

This is a fairly easy pattern, perfect for beginners!
I made it as part of the Autumn Glow Quilt-Along I hosted in August & September.
But you could probably finish it in a couple of days if you really wanted!

The pattern comes with instructions for 1 size that finishes at 66-1/2" x 66-1/2".
It's available as a paper pattern in my Etsy shop HERE
or as a PDF pattern HERE.

The quilting was done by my friend Jen Ostler in Highland, UT.
She did the pantograph called Mike's Swoosh.  It was a new to me pattern
and I really love how it turned out.  I think that pantograph has a modern feel
(which goes nicely with the solid fabrics) and gives a little nod to
"wind".  Jen always hides a little image in her quilting for her clients to find.
The maple leaf was a perfect choice!

Originally I had planned to do a fun floral fabric on the back that coordinated with
my solid fabrics.  But then it dawned on me that I should use a woven or flannel
fabric to give it an extra cozy feel!  I ended up using wovens for both the back and the
binding and I'm so happy I did!  It's so soft and warm!

I washed the quilt after it was all finished and I can't get over all the crinkle!

I don't work with just solids very often but I'm happy I went out on a limb this time!
It's fun to try new things and I want to encourage you to step out of
your comfort zone soon and try something new or different than what you're used to.

This last photo was taken in the 3 Falls area of Alpine, UT.
I love to hike and just had to take my Autumn Glow quilt with me one day
to snap some pictures of her in the fall colors 
(which you can't see much of here).

Thank you for stopping by!
I'd love to hear what you think of this solids version
