Deb Strain & Sandy Gervais In Harmony Together

I quilted for a customer about a month ago and the quilt she brought in was so simple and sweet that I had to go upstairs and cut out my own!  She had done hers in batiks but I had some awesome fabrics, actually 2 Layer Cakes, that I wanted to use in mine!  I am being drawn to the fallish colored quilts more and more!  My customers quilt was a small lap throw but mine ended up being a California full size.

The pattern was easy to decipher and I know I cut my rectangles larger and longer than she did but I did not want to waste any of my layer cake fabric so I trimmed all 4 edges of the pinked edging and divided the width by 3 and cut accordingly.  I love the way it looks!

I used the Saltbox Harvest Layer Cake by Deb Strain and the Awesome Layer Cake by Sandy Gervais that I purchased from Wish Upon A Quilt in Raleigh, NC!  Both of these fabric designers used shades of orange, brown, cranberry, black, yellow, green and white that looked wonderful when mixed together in the same quilt!

I quilted the lap throw using the Koko pantograph by Jodi beamish that I purchased from Columbia River Quilting Supply and will quilt mine with the same design!  It looked really nice on this type of pattern.  The Kokopelli characters fell right into the rails of the blocks so you could see them really well!  And it is a fun pattern to run to boot!

I have a few things to clear out of the studio before I can quilt mine but I will be itching to quilt this so I hope it isn't too long!

It is gorgeous! I, too, love the fall colors in my quilts. I guess that is because my home is done in those colors. I did the Jelly Roll Quilt Along in the Butterfly Gardens fabric and it, too, is perfect for the fall.
