Autumn Picnic quilt

"Autumn Picnic" is my newest quilt design with my all-time favorite color combination for Fall, featuring fabrics from the Can't Stop Falling collection by Hoffman Fabrics. The quilt measures 66-1/2" x 90-1/2" and the blocks finish at 12". I love how it turned out!
In every inch, you will find reminders of Autumn with acorns, leaves in all shapes, and flowers and berries in rich hues. The pinwheel and leaf blocks showcase the traditional colors of Fall and the teal on the chain blocks and on the border say: I am the NEW traditional!
The movement of leaves and pinwheels remind us of the windy days of the season, the cool air letting us know that soon the landscape will change into a less colorful, yet still beautiful, palette. However, with this quilt Autumn can last forever!

You can find "Autumn Picnic "in the October 2019 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine which goes on sale August 2nd. This issue has amazing projects (look at that one on the cover!) so be ready to grab your copy and start making them.

I am peeking outside my office window and see one single yellow leaf on the highest branch of the tree. And just like that, I feel a little cooler already.

Enjoy your day,


  1. Hi! I love your quilt! I cant seem to find the rust, gold and green shown in the magazine for the prints to make the pinwheels and leaves. Could you help? thanks!

  2. Thanks, Joy. I believe you now have all the fabrics, right? Let me see how it turns out!

  3. Hi, I love this quilt too, but also having difficulty finding the rust, gold and green prints, are they from a different line of Hoffman fabrics? Thanks!


I am so glad you are taking the time to leave a comment. It is always nice to hear from you!
