October Quiltie

This month’s theme was Autumn or Halloween – I went with Autumn:

The background fabric is heavily machined calico in various reds, onto which I stitched into place a square of woven fabrics, the colours of which I felt are autumnal – I then hand stitched over this square.  I wove a variegated dyed wool around the edge of the square and finished it off by couching the leaf shape in a thin velveteen ribbon.  I am happy with the result, hope the recipient is :).

    I love the richness of the colours in this piece, and the contrast between the discipline of the pattern of squares and the raggedness of the fibres. I don’t think I’d have the patience!
