Second quilt top finish in October 2021


I sewed the last 3 seams and pressed this 16 patch quilt top and did the staystitching around the edge.  I'm glad I spent a little more time with the layout because there were 2 areas that were bothering me and now I really like it.  It is Autumn Coneflower 2, a remake of a top that I sold back in 2013.  I didn't do an exact reproduction, just the general feel.  Here is the post with the original quilt.  I just realized I made this new quilt top one row longer than the original and I like the proportion better.


Last night I made 5 more blocks of the free Moda pattern Simply Woven and used more light colors.  It looks a lot better now.  I will pull more fabrics to finish up the next 10 blocks and it will be a small quilt 48" x 60".

The coneflower top turned out so pretty! I got the cora bells planted. I let them soak in a bucket of water and they handled the trip fine. Those big ones are huge! Thanks so much!

Coneflower 2 is really a lovely piece--beautiful colors--lights and darks moving in and out...nice work hugs, Julierose

Beautiful, Wanda! The colors are so rich... a last blaze of autumn before winter's stark contrast takes hold. This will be a quilt to warm someone's winter night, snuggled on the sofa before a crackling fire.

I searched for Simply Woven on the Moda website but couldn't find it. Is there more to the name or another name for it? Thanks, JoAnne
