It feels absolutely fantastic to share my latest quilt with you -- officially christened Autumn Sky. I am so ready for fall right now, and thankfully it seems like the weather may actually be starting to cooperate down here in Southern California. Of course, now that I've written that, it will be 102 degrees again tomorrow...
I adore the color palette of this quilt. It's rustic and vibrant and so very fall. The giant log cabin block lets the prints shine, which is exactly what I wanted to do.
For the backing, I used four glorious yards of colored dots from Erin Michael's lovely Lush Uptown collection for Moda. I can't get enough of this print -- it's beautiful.
This quilt is for my dad, one of the nicest guys I've ever known. I love you, Dad.
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday.
