A Quick, Easy and Modern Fall Quilt
Looking for a quick, modern quilt to whip up for your lap or your wall for fall? Well look no further because I've got you covered with my Nomad Quilt! The pattern itself has an modern boho feel and the added fringe detail and bamboo batting really lets it shine in autumnal colors!
First, I gathered some Cotton Confetti Fall colored Fabrics from Riley Blake Designs. From left to right the colors are the following: butterscotch, pumpkin, and putty! Putty is a nice off white that has a tiny touch of beige in the color, so it emits warmer tone than a bright white!
After receiving the fabrics, I knew doing a two tone version of my Nomad Quilt that can be purchased here, would be perfect! I cut my templates, cut my fabrics and began sewing! This is my 4th or fifth Nomad quilt, so it only took me a few hours before my top was finished.
Instead of doing the bare minimum of quilting, I decided to spend a little extra time on the quilting, since I had plenty to spare since construction was so fast. I used the solid Confetti Cotton Butterscotch for the backing and Pellon 50/50 Bamboo & Cotton batting. I used my elmers glue basting technique to baste the quilt. When I had posted my Elmers glue basting method, people were curious how it works on bamboo blend batting’s and after a few bamboo batted quilts I can officially say wonderful! But now back to the quilting! I decided to do a combination of diagonal and grid quilting.
After it was quilted, I knew that adding a little extra flair would compliment this Fall Nomad Quilt. I had found some fringe at my local grocery store that I knew could take the boho of this quilt to the next level. I used the same method as the Suzy Quilts Pom-Pom tutorial to attach my fringe to my binding.
I attached the fringe binding using a machine and here’s the final quilt before washing!
And can you believe it got even better after washing?! The crinkle of the quilt and the drape of the bamboo batting are what my quilty dreams are made of! Check it out below!!! And what fall quilt would be complete without a photo shoot in fall foliage?
Now that's what I call TEXTURE!
