Autumn Blanket

It was fascinating to watch Jenni’s watercolors of sunflowers, pumpkins, and fall foliage evolve into the stunning fabrics of the Sun Kissed Harvest collection. Having gone to college in Colorado, where turning aspens are a visual treat in October, I especially love her aspen tree designs!

 

Autumn Blanket is a past design remade with Sun Kissed Harvest fabrics: Aspen Trees in Lt Orangina; Bias Basketweave in Coal and Mustard; Faux Burlap in Cream, Persimmon, and Stone; and Mirage Honeysuckle and Swirls Mustard from the Quilter’s Candy Basics.

Autumn Blanket reminds me of the wool blankets with Native American influences common here the Northwest. I love the graphic quality of this “strippy quilt” design with its tall, tall aspen trees. The fall colors and geometric design would appeal to men and women for gift-giving.

  

Since I love autumn-themed quilts and this unusual design, I may have to make one myself! I just can’t decide whether to make Autumn Blanket or Jenni’s embroidered pillow first. Hmmm…such a delightful conundrum!

    These are both on my ‘to do’ list. I think piecing the quilt during the day then while sitting around in the evenings is the perfect time to pick up Jenni’s pillow to work on it. BTW, have you seen the new thread line out that acts like 2 ply emb. floss but is a single 12 wt. thread. I just might have to give it a go and see how it works up. (of course try it out on a smaller project first before committing it to this gorgeous pillow)
