Weekly Finish #14: Appalachian Autumn 2020


I finally finished my Appalachian Autumn quilt, which I posted about my WIP here.

Bonnie Hunter's newest pattern was released last month and I knew I had to make this quilt as soon as I saw it.

I love the pieced border.  It's a bit more work but I think it's well worth the extra effort.  I may just start adding pieced borders to future quilts.

The centers of the leaves are string-pieced and so fast and easy to make.

This is the second quilt I've quilted using an edge-to-edge pantograph with my Mega Quilter.  I used an oak leaf pattern from Golden Threads.  Still not perfect but I'm pretty happy with the results.

I used the same fabric for backing that I used on the autumn wall hanging I made for DGD#1.  I love this print with the pumpkins and corn and fall floral.  It screams fall!

And, I say a quilt is not complete until the label is on.

The quilt measures 52" square and the batting is Warm and Natural.
