Autumn Argyle Quilt--Finished!

I finished this up a couple weeks ago and am finally getting around to posting the pictures.

The finished size is about 64" x 84".  The fabrics are all from Kona.  I used gold, papaya, olive, tangerine, and Caribbean for the top, and tomato for the binding.

I quilted along the seams using a matching thread.  The center stitching was done with a dark brown heavy topstitching thread.  

For the back I used an assortment of autumn fat quarters I've been saving.  I did a large block pattern that used every last bit of the fat quarters.  



This is my favorite print in the whole bunch.  I pulled the colors for the front from this particular print.

I've decided these are my "new" colors.  I didn't even realize while I was making this quilt that it matches perfectly with the pillow covers I recently made for our living room.

  17. Argyle is my favorite pattern of all time - I probably have over 20 pairs of Argyle knee socks. Where did you get the fabrics for your cushion covers? They're exactly the colors I'm looking for. Thanks so much!!
