This scrappy quilt is an old fashioned, classic quilt pattern. It is a true scrap quilt with the blocks pieced of leftover strips and strings. To make the blocks, I constructed the fabric by sewing together any string or strip in an autumn colourway, selected at random to make a piece large enough to die cut the tumbler shaped units. The fabrics are scraps left over from 16 years of quilting. The neutral coloured alternate blocks give the eye a place to rest and showcase the large variety of prints. The narrow gold inner border and wider brown outer border tie together the predominant colours of the top.
Here is a close-up photo of the block piecing:
The quilting is done with a gold Superior Bottom Line thread on both the top and in the bobbin. The quilting pattern is Woodland Pines by Anne Bright, a design that includes pine cones, oak leaves, acorns and pine boughs. This will make a great quilt for one of the rustic twin beds at the cottage.
Someone will enjoy snuggling under this quilt on a cool summer night.
