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!
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!
