A few years back I made a Star Log Cabin quilt for my own bed. I had decided on Autumn colors because we had picked a golden color to paint the walls. I used a Quilt in a Day pattern by Eleanor Burns, although as we all know, it takes more than a day to make a quilt, especially a queen sized one.
As I pulled out fabrics from my stash, it occurred to me that I had found usable fabrics from color groups that I hadn't expected, such as purple and green. I didn't think of those as Autumn colors at the time. When I look at this quilt now, I realize that I used quite a range of colors. Here is just a sampling:I find it surprising that I ended up using every color of the rainbow, except for Blue. I had no idea that I could create a quilt with such an Autumn feel by just following one rule: No Blue!
