Stars on Autumn Lane Finished!

Stars on Autumn Lane was a fun quilt along with Carole of From My Carolina Home during her Autumn Jubilee series in October.  I finally finished mine up over the weekend and was able to get some photos of it this morning.


I didn't add the borders, so this little quilt measures 36.5 x 36.5 and hopefully will be perfect for my friend's large dining room table.  Here's how it looks on mine!


I quilted this with a straight line diagonal grid using my walking foot.  Simple for me to do, and I always like the results!


Since the top is made with a small fat quarter bundle called Autumn Road that I purchased in McMinnville, Oregon, and three background fabrics from my stash, I had to go shopping for the backing and binding, and here is what I found.  


It makes me think of falling leaves and fireworks - perfect to celebrate a good friend on her birthday!

I even remembered to sew on a label this time!


I'm so glad to have this quilt finished and ready to be gifted!

  7. I have never thought of making myself a square topper and setting it on point on the table. Perfect backing for it.
