Heather's Fall Festival Quilt

Hi all, this is my post for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amyscreativeside. Hope you like the quilt!

Megan and I had babies together (2 days apart) about 3 and a half years ago, right about the time we started quilting. Well we have since each had baby boys. She has a darling boy named Oliver, and that is who I made this quilt for. I titled this quilt:

 Oliver Fields

I went with this color combination because Megan had totally played the brown and blue with her first baby. Our Mom made a blue and green quilt for him. I ended up loving this combination, and right now it totally reminds me of the fall leaves.

 It is a mix of Modern and traditional (as many of our quilts are). I did an irish chain quilt down one side, with some giant turned under circles on the right, with some bias strips for the branches.

 Our Aunt Wendy did the quilting. She always does beautiful amazing work! I love the medallion in the center of the circles.

 And just check out how darling her little Oliver is. Way cuter than this quilt!

You're so right about the Autumn colors, while I don't think of using color combinations like this most of the time I do find myself reaching for quilts I've made in the past in this color scheme this time of year. How darling your boys are so close in age.

I really like the combination of those big bold circles and the quilting in them! Very clever and looks like a nice snuggly quilt for sure!

Love the direction this baby quilt took! Great combo of the traditional and whimsical modern. I agree, the quilting is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your quilt's story (and the adorable nephew pic!)

What a funky fun cheery quilt. I'm sure it is well loved. Oliver Fields sounds like a Dickens character.

Sorry for being a slacker in visiting blogs. I'm in the middle of a move and I finally have some "me" time to visit and enjoy the show quilts.

I love the mic of old and new in this quilt. I would never think of pairing an Irish chain with the applique design... and it works so beautifully! Love the color choices too... simply perfect!

Sarcastic Quilter said...

It's wicked cute, I love the colors and design, too.

P. said...

That is so cool! I love the colors and the design. Thanks for making the pattern available!

Diane said...
