Machine pieced and quilted by me
Machine quilting with Coats & Clarks variegated thread ("autumn")

The idea behind this quilt was all about playing with color, and how far I could stretch the "rules" of color theory. I chose a simple log cabin pattern and concentrated on the color combos. The quilt grew slowly and at some point the idea popped in my head that I could make this big enough to fit my bed. I finally decided to add borders to make it more "bed friendly".

|Front & Back|
This was my first attempt at machine sewing the binding down, and it was a pain in the "you know what". I do like the end result though.
