I finished this quilt last year and gave it this name of Folklore because many of my scraps were coming from a line of fabrics called Folklore. I selected those rather strong colors to make a dramatic effect, which is quite unusual for me, as in general I prefer soft tunes. I was influenced by a picture found in an old magazine : Country Quilts of Fall 2005 and I used their pattern.

The pattern names of the blocks are Puss In The Corner and Stepping Stars.

The quilt size is 63" x 75". (1m60 x 1m90).

As I said before, I was not used to work with such strong tunes and the consequence was that, once finished, I folded my Folklore quilt and put it straight in a cupboard. I did not look at it for a whole year! But when I "re-discovered" it this autumn, I fell in love with it!!! I find those cheerfull and warm colors so attractive and I think it makes a perfect decoration for fall. Everybody can now admire it in my lounge!

Have a beautiful Sunday!
Bon dimanche a toutes!

  4. Oh Christine, this is lovely! The colors are so rich and perfect for this time of year. I'm so glad you rediscovered it and shared it. As always, your photography is just as special as the quilt. You inspire me!

  5. it is a beautiful quilt - the colors may be darker than you normally work and that might be why it had to grow on you? That happened to me with a quilt I made some years ago now - it was very dark with lots of browns, gold, other dark colors - I gave it to my brother and now miss it sometimes!
