I think it is too early to think of fall, yet here I come with a colorful fall quilt call Autumn Aglow. This gorgeous quilt is reminiscent of falling leaves. The large block is simple to piece and when put together creates a unique tesselating quilt design. I love the cheery fall colors.
Featured in the September/ October 2021 issue of Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine, this issue is full of delightful fall, leafy projects… including my Autumn Aglow quilt.
I used blender cottons called Canvas by Deborah Edwards for Northcott. The blenders are perfect for creating the maple leaf pattern in the blocks.
I designed this quilt with EQ8 Quilt Design Software. It made it so easy to try different colors and draw up the blocks.
This quilt uses only four colors and you only make multiples of these two blocks for the design. Looks complicated but it is super easy.
I used an allover edge to edge maple leaf design. The batting is Tuscany Cotton/Wool batting 80/20 generously provided by Hobbs. This is my favorite batting as the loft really shows off the quilting.
Pick up a copy of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting September/October issue for my pattern and more information.
