Favorite Fabric Friday

Since we have just begun the Fall season, I thought I'd show some Fall fabrics I've been hoarding saving to make an autumn quilt.

When considering fabrics for an autumn quilt, I always like to throw in a little purple. It seems to set off the orange colors. (I think it's a color wheel thing, but I'm no expert.)

Only 4 of the 7 fabrics are strictly "autumn" fabrics but once in a while, if I see a fall fabric that I just love, I buy a fat quarter to add  to the collection.

The name printed on the selvage edge of the fabric on the far right is called "October Sunset". Wouldn't that be a great name for a quilt made up of these colors?

On my ridiculously long list of "quilts I'm going to make someday" is a fall quilt using a pattern from Judy Martin called "Autumn Fantasy". Here's a photo from Judy's Gallery:  Autumn Fantasy

Only time will tell when this quilt will make it to the top of my list, but I'll have my fabric ready when it does.  :-)

Happy Autumn!

  4. You just had to throw in the link to that Autumn Fantasy quilt to torture us in to adding a quilt to our list too! :-) I love fall fabrics too, and those are gorgeous. Karen

  5. I love your fall fabric colletion. Everyone has to have an Autumn Quilt on their list of quilts "to do". This time of year I always get inspired to pull out those rusts, oranges, deep reds, and golds.
