I was asked a few weeks ago to make a "special order" quilt and was more than happy to oblige. The mom-to-be (in Australia) purchasing the quilt asked for fall colors and a retro-modern-traditional quilt, following the same basic pattern of one I have for sale on etsy. Also, she doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl so it had to be pretty neutral.
The hard part, for me, of making this quilt was figuring out what she was looking for in colors. I'm not typically a fall color person (though I have just made another quilt with the same colors that I just realized I never took pictures of ... a situation I shall remedy tomorrow) so those colors don't come as easily to me as spring or summer colors - not that I love them less, I'm just naturally drawn to brighter colors with lots of white.
charm pack of them and used those squares for a number of the centers. I have a picture of the ottoman she is using and love the way it looks with the final quilt.
The quilting is done in the ditch with brown thread, and then each of the center squares it outlined with stitching.
The backside is solid brown and gold, with strips of the colors from the front.
