Autumn Geometry

Laurie Gorton

Top and backing machine-pieced. Machine-quilted by Lea Robrahn, Lee Ann Quilts, Overland Park, KS

Around the time my granddaughter was born, my stepson and his wife bought new throw rugs for their home. The bold design of green, gold and red squares tickled my imagination, and when I took the "Stack a New Deck" class at the 2006 IQI Quilt-In, I found the right technique to act on that inspiration. The colors evoke nature's dark, vivid hues of autumn, when the family's birthdays fall. It took me a while to complete this quilt which will be given to the family—John, Karen and Jocelyn Romadka—as a Christmas gift this year.
