august quilt in september


Despite not getting this one completed in August, I’m still calling it the August quilt. I selected these fabrics for Stash Fabrics Design Star fabric bundle club and it went out as August’s bundle to those signed up. I decided to immediately cut mine up and came up with this little design.



I was excited to find that this beautiful Monaluna print contains similar colors and ordered some for the backing. It’s available in both poplin and lawn – I opted for the lawn, as I love how it feels as a quilt back.


I quilted it with offset concentric squares, and am really pleased at how it turned out. I particularly like how the quilting shows up on the backing.


We took a little trip to a local apple orchard this past weekend for some honeycrisp apples, concord grapes and cider donuts (and a quick photo shoot for this quilt!). The kids aren’t so thrilled these days when I suggest a trip to take quilt photos, but luckily they can still be bribed…cider donuts to the rescue!

mmm…cider donuts!


I bound it with a navy sprinkle print which I found in my stash and was the perfect finishing touch.


Hazel’s already claimed this quilt, but was too distracted by the wagon and apples to pose for a photo. Good thing this guy is always ready to jump in front of the camera!


Thanks, Stash Fabrics, for the opportunity to select a fabric bundle! You can no longer purchase this bundle, but there’s still time to sign up for the club — there are many great bundles still to come!

    Ashley this quilt is beautiful! The colours and mix of prints you have selected are perfectly soft and feminine while offering enough contrast and boldness to be truly interesting. I love the pattern you have created too. No wonder Hazel has claimed it as her own!
