FREE Feature Pattern: Thanksgiving Topper in QUILTER’S WORLD (October 2011)

My Autumn Stars quilt (renamed Thanksgiving Topper) is offered as a free featured pattern in Quilter’s World‘s October 2011 issue.


The focal print fabric is from Blank Quilting‘s Mayu collection. I like using large-scale floral print in piecing because the resulting cut pieces always capture different portions of the print — making your pieced blocks look different from one another!


Quilting is done with Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton thread (color 2310) on Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting:

Here are a few photos showing the quilting. If you are wondering about the curve cross-hatching, I have written about it here.


The oval shapes with the “sprig thingamagigs” in the center are meant to mimic the old fashion cookie press from the Old World.


I also picked up the scroll-ies in the coordinate fabric to quilt in the sashing.


This 36″ square quilt makes a nice table topper as shown in the official Quilter’s World picture. You can download the pattern by clicking here.  Please email me if you have trouble accessing the file.

I hope you would find the pattern an enjoyable one if you decide to make the quilt. Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely weekend. We are expecting another round of rain. Honestly, we haven’t really seen the sun for more than a week – it’s been gloomy here! But it’s definitely cozy…
