New PDF Pattern: Appalachian Autumn!



Let the leaves turn and fall!

Let the temperatures drop!  We will be inside cozy and warm, stitching up armfuls of autumn-colored string maple leaves, ready for the season ahead!

I absolutely adore autumn. The only problem is that it doesn’t really last long enough.

Here in the southeast we tend to go from summer’s heat and humidity to – all the leaves are down and now it’s too cold to enjoy the outdoors anymore.

I wish there was a way to make autumn last – and this is a great way to keep the BEST parts of our beautiful fall season and enjoy them all the way through Thanksgiving.



Appalachian Autumn finishes at 56 1/2’’ x 56 1/2’’

Perfect as a table topper, couch throw, or a large wall hanging!

I pulled out all of my strips and strings in beautiful fall shades of orange, gold, rust, red with a bit of brown – and allowed the leaves to swirl on a background of stormy, cloudy grey and warm vanilla custard cream.  YES!  You can let grey and cream play together – this is the perfect place to bring in those sandy neutrals you thought were “not white enough” for other projects. 

They are beautiful here!

  8. I really love this pattern and just purchased it. I don't have the same scrap collection as Bonnie (or a lot of my friends) so will start acquiring fat quarters for awhile to collect as many as I can to make this quilt. Not sure how long this will take??? but looking forward to the process!

  9. It is going to be a beautiful weekend here in MO too. Enjoy your time with Jason and bike riding, I would love to get to that area some day it sounds so pretty. I am going to buy some batting today if I can find any in the stores and plan to quilt up my 4 quilt tops next week. Have a great weekend with your family!

  11. Bonnie, Appalachian Autumn is absolutely stunning! The colors play so well together. You must have had a blast seeing this one come to life! I'd love to make one, but I don't have the scrap inventory you have. How can I come anywhere near your scrappy look? (This is not a rhetorical question.)

  24. Love this quilt! Just ordered it and Punkin' Patch Runner. Only you, Bonnie, could have won me over to the Orange Side. Makes my husband chuckle when I show him a piece of orange fabric I purchased. Thank you. Now I have some sewing to do!

  25. YAY for Jason's return - y'all enjoy your weekend. I will be doing scrap management this week, and while I'm cutting & sorting, I will be making a box just for Appalachian Autumn. Autumn is my favorite season, and like you, I wished it lasted longer.

  26. Teddy is headed our way. Autumn goes on forever here and I love it. Sad to have to put all the outside yard stuff away so early but with the threat of gale force winds there was no choice. Hopefully the power stays on and by Wednesday noon all will be well. Love the colours in this quilt, maple leafs for canada and the colours our leaves will become in about three weeks. I

  27. I've been watching your progress on this quilt. I just purchased it and printed it!
    I made some string squares about 15 years ago that are just the right color for this. I will probably add some applique leaves that are also leftovers from another quilt that was made about 20 years ago. I love Autumn the Blue Ridge mountains. We don't get quite the color here in Alabama. I miss it.

  31. As Oranges are my favourite colours and due to health I need a pile of cuddly laptops I did the 4 second dash to your store and grabbed it, will take time for a coffee and then guess what my Sunday is going to be, thank you Bonnie

  37. Thank you, Bonnie for another awesome pattern! I have no idea when I will get to it... I do not have a huge selection of fabric built up like so many others do! 😂 And lots of quilts in the initial stages... so hopefully I will have some leftovers from some of them for the future! Have fun with your son!

  38. Your quilt reminds me of a Mamma's and Poppas song from way back... "All the leaves are brown, and the sky is gray...." Great memories!

  39. I ❤️ this quilt, so I bought the pattern! I didn’t have enough autumn colors in my stash so a shopping I went, yeah! Now I’m ready to begin, so I read the pattern. I must say I love the way it was written so even I could understand it. This will be my first time making one of your patterns. I welcome any advice on the “ strip pieces”.
