Quilting Autumn

Sometimes when you see a nice cozy quilt under someone‘s knitting and book reading on Instagram, you just have to pull fabrics out and start sewing.

I started with a stack of fabrics that made me think of autumn. Oranges, deep purples, blues and greens. Brown, and a little pink because… pink.

I grabbed my notebook and sketched out a bunch of classic blocks and a few new ones. Just things I wanted to make. And over the past few weeks I’ve been sewing a block or two whenever I feel like it. I started with a giant block, the single girl, then made a quick teeny tiny maple leaf. A radiant lone star in miniature (those little triangles are 1/2″ because I’m insane!), then a free-form autumn leaf to loosen up from the precision of the lone star. No rhyme or reason on what I’m making, or in what size. Just making because it’s what I feel like making. I like it.

This is improv my style. Not all crazy-liberated (which is a look I love, but a process I don’t). Not all crazy-wonky (because I like things not wonky). I’ll put it together like a puzzle when I feel like I’m done, adding a few more tiny blocks or strips of neutrals to make things fit.

I’m posting as I go on Instagram. #beanquiltsautumn if you’re interested in seeing more of the process. I’m posting on Instagram even if you’re not interested in seeing more of the process.
