New Cutie Pattern -- Summer's End!

I try not to play favorites, really I do, but this is one of my favorite Cutie Patterns.  I am tickled to introduce Summer's End:

This quilt is 80"x92"and will eventually live on my bed; it needs to travel a bit first, though.  I used Victoria Findlay Wolfe's Mostly Manor fabrics because they are happy and bright.  I had been saving these fabrics for something special and I think they've found the perfect home in this quilt.

I really, really wanted the star points to stand out on this quilt.  I left them unquilted so that the batting would puff them up.  I also quilted diamonds into the sashing to emphasize and elongate the star points.

I wrote a short tutorial about how I marked the white fabric to quilt this sashing.

I'm already hard at work making another copy of this quilt with some April Cornell fabric.  Stay tuned for more photos!
