Autumn Sharon is Traveling

Earlier this week I shared photos of Autumn Sharon and the fact that it is going to be in the Fall issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects.  What I didn’t share then was the fact that it was 1 of 22 quilts accepted to be exhibited in the Primitive Quilts Exhibit at Fall Market in Houston.  I was excited that my design was accepted by Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine and just  beside myself thrilled that it is going to be exhibited at Fall Market.

Before Autumn Sharon was boxed up for travels to Houston I took some additional photos so that I could share the embellishing and quilting on the piece.  Here’s a long shot and then close ups of different sections of the quilt.  The phenomenal quilting done on this was by Jo Kuchera of Block City Quilts.  I know my quilt tops are a challenge to custom quilt because of all my embellishing but she has out done herself in the motifs chosen for the quilt.  The edge has what she called “matchsticks”.  These are just tiny lines of quilting and then little pebbles.  Amazing.

The magazine issue will be out later this month.  Enjoy!
