Blazin' by Cathy Johnson, 2009. Photo by India Brantley.

When describing the month of October, Anne Mary Lawler wrote:
“The fields are harvested and bare,
And Winter whistles through the square.
October dresses in flame and gold
Like a woman afraid of growing old.”
In keeping with such a poetic description of October, the October 4, 2009 featured quilt  in the Start Your Week With a Quilt©  newsletter was Blazin’. It was created by Cathy Johnson.

This 38 x 55 inch bargello quilt was made from a  pattern called ribbons in motion in a class taught by Jeanette Walton. Cathy pieced the quilt, and Maxine Moore machine quilted it.

The key to a successful bargello quilt is the fabric choices. Here, Cathy’s choice of vibrant oranges and lush greens on a brown background make this a beautiful October quilt.
Blazin’ is currently on loan to the H.J.C. Bowden Senior Multi-Purpose Facility, located at 2885 Church Street, East Point, GA.
