A Friday Finish: Indian Summer

You might remember that earlier I told you that we have a collaboration book coming out in early December.  The premise of the book is that we were to design a quilt and them make variations of the quilt.  For the book, we only needed to sew the actual quilt.  We didn’t need to sew the variations.

Well I needed a quilt for the wedding we are going to this weekend and I thought it would be fun to make one of the variations as a gift.

This one we originally called Indian Summer.   In one of the goodie boxes of fabric that a blog reader sent to us was a stack of fall colored fat quarters.  They were perfect for this project.  The quilt is small compared to quilts we typically design as are most of the quilts we designed for the book are.  All are either lap or single bed sized.

I used my favorite echoed stipple with a slightly darker thread.  It’s actually more of a light brown than cream.

Honestly this quilt went together in no time.  I easily could have started this on Friday night and have been completely finished with it by Sunday night.  If you want a quick easy gift it’s a perfect pattern.

Watch for the book to be out soon.  We’ll be doing pre-sales here in a couple weeks.  We have some behind the scenes work to do before we have them in the cart and ready to go.  Here’s a little sneak peek at the cover.  I can’t wait to see the full book!

    The fabrics in your quilt are just yummy; especially liked the one with pumpkin design. The quilt itself is wonderful; I like the border. Can’t wait to see this book!
