Autumn Aspens

I just put the finishing touches on a wall hanging that I've been working on (mostly off and on) for some time. It comes from a book by Joan Segna called, Follow the Dots to Dazzling Quilts. Her quilt is done in black and white fabrics and called Winter Aspens. I decided to do it in fall colors. Most of the fabrics were designed by Jane Sassaman and were perfect for this project.

I had fun with the pieced back and the label. The label is kind of a miniature of the front of the quilt. I had fun doing it, but mostly, I'm glad it's done. Cross another one off the list! Autumn Aspens is going to my sister, Nancy, who laid claim to it just as I had finished the top. I'll be borrowing it from her to put in the New Year's show at Glad Creations. Come and see it in person this coming January 1st!

The quilt looks beautiful in the picture, but even more spectacular in person. I hope mine turns out half as good.

It looks fantastic! Does finishing mean that you get to put something new in your top 40?

I can't wait to see it in person at the January show. The border and backing look a bit familiar... from the collection you started last April??
