Harvest - October's Entry in AYOS

Introducing Harvest!

This month's Schnibble pattern was Hubble - a beautiful quilt made with HST.  It contained an option in the back to make it with squares, instead of HST.  When I saw this option, I decided this was the Hubble for me!

I modified the pattern to use 2 1/2 in squares (instead of 4 1/2 in) and didn't put the border on.  This finished roughly 36 inches square and is going to hang over a small desk I have in my bedroom.  It fits perfectly between two windows.  I am very excited to hang it there.

The fabric used was Sandy Gervais Late Bloomer.  This was all with ONE charm pack - cut into 2 1/2 squares along with the background fabric.

I did all straight line quilting first starting at the outline of the star and working in.  Then I switch thread color on the top only and worked out to the edges.  The straight line quilting got a bit boring towards the end but the final effect is one that I just love!

Looking forward to the parade Thursday at Sinta's and Sherri's and and the challenge for November.  I've some holiday charms I want to use for whatever challenge comes our way!  

Happy Stitching!
