Fall Wall completed!

Pre-Soccer season I had been working on a wall that screams "Harvest" to me! Well it is now completed, plus it has been quilted and bound...soooooo here is it.

It's an hourglass pattern, that you can a tutorial here. (This is the second tutorial of "Diary of A Quilter" that I have her!) It is actually a really easy pattern, and even easier when you use the 5" charm packs like I did.
I always like to see what fabric people use on the back....I used a fabric alreeady in the quilt (you can see the same fabric in one of the hourglass parts: bottom right). You really can't tell it by the picture, but it has little orange dots that pick up the orange border and binding great!
Here is a little glance at some of the machine quilting...I did not do this...I took it to someone. My machine I had at the time was not able to do anything like this. I do have one now though!!! (not a long arm like was used on this quilt, but a machine that will also me to do some fun things of my own.)  I wanted the hourglass to stick out when you look at the quilt, this is what she came up with. You can hardly see it but in the brown borders that surround the hourglass block she put some simple leaves on a vine.

In the orange border around the outside, I had her do these wonderful plump pumpkins with curly vines...they look wonderful and primitive! I am thirlled with how it all came together and believe it or not I also have a table runner done now, waiting to be my FIRST machine quilting victim project... I also have completed my very first QUEEN size bed quilt. I made made several twin bed quilts just never one for the Hubby and Me.....More project and pictures to come!

It looks great. That pattern is on my list of things to do. Congrats on finishing your Queen size quilt. I'm working on my first as well. Have fun playing with your new machine!
