Autumn top finished
I'm disappointed in this picture but I can't seem to get a one that's any better. There's not nearly as much contrast in the pieced border as it appears in this picture.
I love this top! It's going to be a beautiful quilt and it's a nice size at 65x83. Although I've been using stash to piece backs for all my recent quilts, I'm going to run out and buy some flannel for the back of this one.
I had intended to put this one on the shelf before quilting but I decided with a flannel back, this quilt will be perfect to take to Minneapolis for our temporary apartment. I've got another Autumn quilt at the condo that I finished last year that also has a flannel back so if I take both of them - Keith and I will both have toasty sofa quilts at the apartment.
Just in case someone hasn't seen the previous post about this quilt - it's based on a pattern at Bonnie Hunter's site called Pineapple Blossom. I made more blocks, didn't set mine with sashing and my borders are different but the inspiration and block are from Bonnie.
