Cover quilt for September 2004 issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine
This quilt was inspired by the beautiful colors of autumn in New England and designed by me as it progressed, starting with just the compass blocks in the center. These were machine pieced, but the green triangles and the circles at the points were hand appliqued. All the applique and quilting was done by hand and the quilt took 3 1/2 years to complete. Working on it through 3 winters was my way of “keeping autumn with me” during those drab and cold months.
