Autumn Blossom... my second paper pieced quilt

I got this quilt back from the quilter and thought I would share with you my second paper pieced quilt AUTUMN BLOSSOM ..... Thanks to my dear friend Doreen who guided me over the internet with picture tutorials on how to paper piece these amazing quilt blocks. I could have not have made this quilt without her THANK YOU DOREEN ! This quilt was quite a challenge for me but I did it !
Just look at the machine quilting the quilter did on my quilt ! She did this ALL free hand too ! We used black batting and black fabric for the backing.
The fabric I used for this quilt is Jo Morton's CAROLINA! Isn't it just gorgeous fabric ! So fun to work with !

I do not know if you remember my 1st Paper pieced quilt;

I am hooked on paper piecing now ;-)

Have a Great weekend everyone !


  1. Isn't PP fun!?! I enjoy it when the rythm sets in and love how nice points turn out. Yours are perfect! Your quilter did a great job and the Jo Morton fabrics are gorgeous. Haven't met one I didn't like :0)

  2. Autumn Blossom is gorgeous! I like paper piecing for the accuracy and this one turned out great. I like your fabric selection too. Green Tea is on my "list" because I really like the star blocks but I did not know it uses paper piecing.

  3. Very lovely! Great fabrics and that quilting is wonderful--congrats on a lovely finish!

  4. Wonderful fall themed machine quilting! Paper piecing is a great technique...allows us to piece things we cannot do with just rotary cutting and who wants to use templates...yuk. Since fall colors are my favorite, I adore your fabric selection!

  5. Sue - your quilt turned out beautiful!
    You've really mastered paper piecing!
    Congratulations...another gorgeous quilt finish for 2012!

  6. I just love the colors you chose for this, Sue! Can you tell me which pattern this is? I would love to make it, too!

  7. Awesome - your Autumn Blossom quilt and quilting!! I'm really weak for the autumn colors and this is a really bad news for me seeing such beauty while I'm trying to pursue with my Christmas stitching/quilting year this year. I may have to make another big exception to make something with these gorgeous fabrics in autumn colors!!
