Ah, Autumn Handmade Quilt by Brenda Morton
Ever wonder what inspires the fabrics in a handmade quilt?
I do every time I see a quilt, especially ones at quilt shows. The 2017 Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild show in Rolla, Missouri featured several handmade quilts in the same pattern with different fabric choices. I will feature each of the three here so we can look at how fabric choices changed the overall design.
This Ah, Autumn quilt was made by Brenda Morton in what I would call more traditional fall colors of burnt orange, green and cream fabric colors.
If you look closely, some of the patchwork designs feature multi-patterned fabrics that add texture.
Those fall leaves are sure familiar, they look very much like the fall leaves in our Fall Leaves Quilt.
This is a quilt pattern from Linda Johnson and Jane Wells, who taught a class in Rolla, Mo. using a patchwork pattern out of their own book.
Would these be similar to fabrics you would have chosen for a fall-themed handmade quilt?
Stay tuned, coming up are two more handmade quilts in the same pattern but decidedly different fabric choices.
