Another Finished Project

When I first began to  want to learn the art of quilting, I made a wall hanging for our home. After that, all the quilts that I made in California were for other people~my sister undergoing chemo and then then the five baby quilts for our grands. About 14 yrs ago I also started going to Mystery Quilt Weekends and had a couple of wall hangings for that. When we moved to Colorado and retired, I began making quilts for hubby and I. I gave him a flannel quilt on Christmas one year, that he uses every winter and about two years ago, I made a fall quilt for myself. Last year when we were up in Washington, I got this fabric and pattern and spent last winter working on this. Last night I finished the binding and washed it this morning. Without further adieu here it is.

I can honestly say that this is my favorite quilt thus far; I added more quilting than I have in the past, in a feather pattern that hopefully you can see in the bottom two photos.  I love the colors and prints and it screams Autumn to me.
I also want to say that although I did finish the baby quilt, I can't post photos until my girl gets it-probably this weekend. 
Now I have one other wall hanging to put binding on and then I can begin my newest quilt project.  I'm looking forward to football season because this is when I get so much quilting done.
Have a joyous weekend. 
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  8. Hi Noreen. I have been away from my computer due to a burned out power cord. And we were away to the mountains as well. I am playing catch up. I adore the quilt! It certainly does scream Autumn! Love the colors, and the quilting on it. Did you do the quilting yourself on your home machine, or send it out?
    Lovely. Can't wait to see the baby quilt too. Tis almost time for me to get busy in my sewing room too!!

  9. Beautiful! Mom made a wall hanging and a couple lap quilts. Maybe I can get her to make me one when it gets cold. Are you making one for Hunter?

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  10. Oh, Noreen, that's such a delightful quilt! It definitely feels like a fall quilt, but one that could also stay out beyond fall. I just love the feathery quilting ... did you use a template? Can you share what your next quilt project will be?

  11. What a wonderful talent you have. It is clear that you find a lot of joy in your creativity.

  12. Oh my! This quilt is wonderful....and your hand quilting is gorgeous! What a stunner! Well done!
