Quilting for Fall

machinepieced, handembroidered and machinequilted

Even though the cats are lingering between embroidered summerflowers, the quilt looks very autumnally because of its colors.

Most fun I had embroidering the blocks with several kinds of flowers. It's worthwhile to click on the thumbnails and take a look at the cat blocks. The embroidery can be replaced with fabrics with flowerprints.

Pattern available in my patternhop.

This quilt I created for the contest "Yellow – Van Goghs favorite color". I took four van Gogh-paintings as pattern: 
„Autumn Landscape at Dusk“ (fall 1885),
„Avenue of Poplars in Autumn“ (october 1884),
„Trunk of an old Yew Tree“ (october 1888) und
„Two cut Sunflowers“ (late summer 1887).

I won the second place :o)


One of my favorite classic blocks is the honeybee block, you see it between the apples.

The apples are handappliqued with a pattern from "Four Corners".


Size: 18 1/2 x 25 inch

Unfortunately I didn't drafted this quilt myself.

In spite of the tulipblocks I consider this quilt very autumnally because of it's colours.
