Indian Summer

November 8, 2011

We had a beautiful Indian summer day here in Ottawa yesterday, something we don’t often get in the first week of November. The garden has been put to bed, but the ornamental crabapple tree in our backyard is loaded with fruit, and the red apples are brilliant at this time of year.

Last week I mentioned that I was working on a new project (at last!). I wanted to use the Indian Summer collection by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake, and picked Skipping Squares by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew for the pattern.

Allison’s instructions for cutting and piecing are detailed and accurate. The top went together quickly (a variety of simple log cabin style squares) and this lap size quilt (51″ x 68″) is now ready for quilting. You can pick up a kit (fabric only) in the shop, and then visit Cluck Cluck Sew to buy a downloadable PDF or hardcopy of the pattern.
