This beautiful sampler quilt is made with the colours of autumn. It will make you think of crunchy leaves, pumpkin spice and cozy sweaters.
This quilt is made up of six different blocks. Each block is a variation of a nine patch, and they are scrappy-pieced with random fabric placement.
I choose the border fabric first, and then picked out fat quarters in colours that matched.
The churn dash block is one of the most complex in the quilt, but it is still easy to make. It is made up of a square, rectangles and half-square triangles.
This is a perfect block for advanced beginners.
You can get tutorials for this block and all the others in the Epida Studio Quilt Block Directory.
Because the colours are so vibrant, the quilting is simple.
It is straight vertical lines, but with a decorative stitch.
The simple wave of the decorative stitch adds a bit of fun, and also solves the problem of trying to stitch in the ditch.
