Quilt Festival - Oh, My Tangled Stars!




This is a Border Creek Station Pattern Company design.  I have always wanted to do a quilt in autumn colors.  But the year I had this marvelous idea the only fabric I could find as my main/border fabric were novelity prints.  I did not want the quilt to say autumn just feel autumm. So on a trip to Florida I found the  border fabric with all the colors I wanted.





It is longarm quilted with a leaf design, I wanted the design to look as if the leaves were blowing across a field of fabric.  


 

This is my first time joining Amy for the Quilt Festival.
So join our host at Amys Creative Side is view what other quilters have in the Festival.

Hi!
I wish I had a first name for you so I could thank you for following and leaving comments!

Your quilt is beautiful. Florida does have some wonderful quilt shops. I know I stock up before I go back to Maine.

Glad you joined the quilt festival. No paperwork and no sleeve!

Love that color combo. Very pretty. I'm also drooling over the black/white mystery quilt in your side bar. "I wish I may" steal that one for my own boudoir! :)

Your autumn quilt is beautiful! It would be lovely to use on the sofa or bed when the weather turns a little nippy! The floral border is one of my favorite parts. I also like how the the last photo shows a sneak peek of the backing.
