Spring into Autumn

Good evening everyone,

I have been quilting! YIPPEE!

I love this Hi-De-Ho charm pack from Moda so much. It’s bright and cheerful and this quilt is making me happy every time I look at it. I added Moda Bella Solids in Amelia Lavender for the border, binding and cornerstones plus two five inch squares of each of Amelia Lavender, Sunshine (yellow) and Michael Miller’s Zillion Hearts (pink) to make up six more HST pairs.


The quilting is simple stippling, my favourite to do and also to look at.


These colours are great for wherever you are in the world. In the Southern Hemisphere you are stepping into Spring. Perfect! Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are just into Autumn. Although we’ve had a couple of lovely days of sunshine here, it does get a wee bit gloomy for my liking in Autumn. Finishing this quilt has brightened my autumnal day 🙂

    the extra fabrics you added blend in superbly with the zany charm pack. I love everything about this quilt: the bright colours, the layout, the stippling – really gorgeous!

    • Thank you Claire. I was going to jumble up all the colours but then started to group them together. I realised I could make six by eight blocks if I could find squares to match. Luckily, these worked a treat.

    This is a really happy quilt. I love the lavender border and cornerstones. The colours all fit together so well. I bet you really enjoyed making this quilt especially the stippling. 🙂

    • I did enjoy every minute of making this one. The cornerstones and border were very nearly robin’s egg blue and then I came to my senses 🙂

  5. A beauty! A first I just saw the HST, then I saw the full pattern, so great 🙂

  6. What a happy quilt. And, I’ve been wanting a way to use a charm pack to make a whole quilt. I look forward to making this; thank you for this great share!

  7. What a great way to use a charm pack. I feel a future project coming on.

    • Thank you Lynn. There’s a blue version on my 2012 finishes page above. It’s a really quick and easy pattern to make. By the way, I posted your blocks on 12th October. You should receive them very soon 🙂

  8. Beautiful colors for any time of the year…bright and cheery and fun to look at. I too love to stipple, so relaxing and natural for me to do. As a young teenager, I’d “doodle” on my text book covers; little did I know years later it would be called stippling! Love your quilt and added borders – great choice!

    • Thank you for the lovely comment 🙂 I used to call this type of doodling “Taking a line for a walk” and it would usually include crossing over the lines. Then I’d set to work colouring the shapes in wacky colours.

  9. It is looking so fresh and happy because of the wonderful bright colours. love it.

    I love the bright, happy look! I think because it’s going into late fall/winter here, I’m being drawn to those bright colors a lot lately.


I really enjoy reading your comments. Have a lovely day :-)
