It’s September 1st and here’s the pattern for our couch quilt that we have made many times over the years.
Here is my quilt with the floral fabric purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Here is Connie’s quilt and fabric.
The color in Connie’s quilt is not true – it’s really a beautiful shade of orange with gray. It comes off blue no matter how I edit the colors. Here is a closeup of the border fabrics.
See, they aren’t blue! But they look like it in the picture of the quilt.
Here are the fabric requirements:
When choosing coordinating fabrics we sometimes refer to the color dots in the selvedge.
It’s an easy way to pick fabrics that will look good with the center print. Have any of you ever used these color dots in this way?
Here’s another photo of the pattern just in case the one on the first page posts too large.
We are providing this pattern free as a thank you for supporting this blog. Please feel free to print it out on your computer. If you’d like to order a hard copy from us, send $3.00 to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA.
Sugar Maple will be extended until October 1 and we will post a hand appliqué project that will also expire October 1. Why you say? It’s still fall in October BUT Christmas is coming and in October we will want to work on a couple Christmas projects, won’t we?
I’ve been waiting to post this pattern and just now I realize I never took a picture of the quilt on the couch. Since it’s almost midnight right now I will take that photo tomorrow and post it for you.
Connie wanted me to thank you for all the sweet comments about Betty. I will post her on the blog as she grows – we can enjoy her together.
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend, Everybody!
