A small finish

I finished this a couple weeks ago but was busy and sort of forgot about it.  I really wanted to try and take some pictures with the leaves since it reminds me of autumn.  I love those red leaves.  Timing was not working so I was able to leave work early and could snap a couple of photos before it got dark.  
We have mainly yellow leaves in our yard.

But I thought this looked pretty with the bayberry bushes!

I had won the scraps at my Moda Club meeting and they were partially sewn together so I made random blocks and then used the red from the pack we had gotten for the binding and an old beige Moda Marble for the back.  I  free motioned quilted the flower design from Angela Walter's book.  I love the look of that design and thought it would work on here.  There are some florals in the fabric.  Plus it was good practice! Nice small manageable practice piece.   Not sure where it will end up but has been hanging out at the table in our living room.  I may gift it too so we will see.

A closer look at the quilting.

It sure is fun to have a quick cute finish.  

I actually did name this quilt too!  Not something I do often but I named it Autumn Day.

This measures at 24"x30"

Thanks for stopping and enjoy the weekend. 

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, TGIF, and Can I get a Whoo Whoo?  I am sure I will be hopping to see what everyone has been up to later since it was a long week this week!  So happy it is Friday and to have some sew time!  Enjoy!
