autumn penny patch {all finished}

I'm absolutely positively in love with my finished Autumn Penny Patch quilt. 
 

It was planned to be a "couch quilt" from the very beginning, so I made it long and skinny to fit our couch cushions nicely.


I so love all these pretty colors together (you can read about my color inspiration for this quilt here).


I decided to use my long hoarded Amy Butler Wallflowers yardage for the backing. I think it works really well with all the light, citrusy colors of the quilt top.


Striped black and white binding seemed like just the right finishing touch.


I made this quilt as part of Rachel's Penny Patch quilt along which is going on right now. There's still time to join in if you like.

I love this simple, sort of vintage pattern so much I might even have to make one more of these quilts, this time for our bed. Before I jump into that, though, I have to get back to my Christmas sewing list. Too many projects, too little time. Just 47 sleeps and Christmas is here!!!

Have a lovely day. Svetlana

  5. Looks wonderful!! I have a rainbow quilt that is ready for binding right now and this black and white strip you used on this quilt is just what I'm looking for!! Do you by any chance know the name of this fabric?
    Any help would be so great!
    Thanks in advance for your help, Jessica

  6. Oh a seat sized quilt is brilliant - I spend so much time re-arranging the quilts folded to hide our grotty sofa seat, this would be perfect - thank you xxx
