Autumn Quilt Finished!

Life has been so unbelievably hectic this summer! But I managed to finish this Fall quilt just in time for Fall. It's a drizzly day here in the NW so it's perfect timing! Time to start lovin' on that quilt! I started working on this one back in late May/early June... I thought it turned out very pretty! The inspiration for this quilt came from the border fabric. The blended Autumn colors were so eye-catching. I used 22 different fabrics in this quilt. It is very fat-quarter friendly. In fact, with the 22 different colors I ended up with enough extra fabric cut out for the leaves that I could almost create another one. It was actually quite mind-boggling to try to put together! For every row that was stitched I had to plan out the next row because of the exchange of fabrics for each block. Crazy! I saw this pattern online somewhere and mathed the measurements out.. The quilting on this one was totally random. I didn't use any pantos--it all came from me wee little brain.. lol
