The quilt is called Autumn Moons. finished size is 44x60 so perfect for snuggling under during a movie marathon when the weather turns.Fabric requirements were super easy; 1/2yrd cut for inner border and 9 dark and 9 light fat quarters, but who doesn't have that laying around in their stash? I know that I sure do, but I also need an excuse to go visit my local quilt shop every now and again so that is what I did this time. Of course, you will also need a backing.
I really liked the simplicity of the quilt. I know, I know, so many people are afraid of the drunkards path but is really is quite simple if you have ever set in a sleeve it is no different. The only one definite recommendation I have is if you ever do a drunkards path go get the acrylic template for cutting. I did not have access to my template this time around and I had to cut it old school. I did not enjoy it at all. I am so used to the accuracy that I get with the acrylic rulers and a rotary cutter.
Given the size of the quilt I do have ideas rolling around in my head of doing this quilt again only making it larger to fit my king size bed. The decisions to be made then are do I make more leaves and make the center bigger, or do I simply add a couple of rows or drunkard path and call it a day, probably I will make drunkards path and a few random leaves followed by another random flying geese border. I can't wait to get this loaded up onto the long-arm and quilt it. That was another aspect of the quilt that appealed to me. some great open spaces to quilt in. I will post pictures when that day comes. In the mean time head over to www.canuckquilter.com and take a look and some of Joanne's other works.
