Autumnal Harlequin Quilt Top

From November 2015...

For my October birthday, in 2015, I decided to quietly enjoy the day with some seasonal fabrics. I dug out all the autumnal colors to inspire me as I thumbed through my quilt books. My heart grabbed on to a certain Harlequin pattern...

This lovely batik became my focus fabric...

Then I agonized which colors to pull out for the other diamonds...

3

Firmly decided, it was time to sew! (Or should I change more colors around?) Decisions, decisions.

With the quilt top sewn, it was time to make the quilt sandwich...

Then the hand stitching to bind all the layers together began...

Before I knew it, it was Christmas. I put it away to work on the following autumn. I'm actually still handquilting this. It's a project that I now have stored away until autumn. How lovely to keep warm underneath while stitching away...
