As the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to change, the quilting world is abuzz with excitement because September is here! Corey Yoder, the creative genius behind countless stunning quilts, is back with her September $5 Pattern of the Month, and we're thrilled to introduce it to you.
Show of hands, who is surprised that it's September already? We're right there with you, Corey! This year has zoomed by, and we're about to dive headfirst into the cozy embrace of fall and winter. But fear not, because Corey has something special to keep you warm and inspired through the upcoming seasons.
For September, Corey has chosen her delightful acorns pattern as the featured $5 Pattern of the Month. This charming quilt was originally crafted using the "Cozy Up" fabric collection, which, fortunately, is still readily available. So if you're looking to infuse your projects with the warm, autumnal vibes of fall-themed fabric, "Cozy Up" might be your perfect choice.
The best part? Corey's acorns pattern is designed for charm packs, making it a fantastic option when you want to create a beautiful quilt without breaking the bank on fabric. Here's what you'll need:
- Two Charm Packs (or 65-inch squares)
- Two-thirds yard of print fabric for the lovely gray section
- Five yards of background fabric, Corey's choice being Moda Bella solid in color 200
- One and an eighth yard of border fabric
- Binding and backing to complete your quilt top
This quilt is a roomy one, finishing at 70 by 82 inches, ensuring you'll stay cozy all season long. The quilting features an elegant crosshatch pattern, gracefully accentuating the gray portions within the quilt. Corey's attention to detail even extends to the backing, which matches the border fabric, and a lovely gray pin-dot binding that ties it all together.
Corey's September 2023 $5 pattern of the month is available in her Etsy shop as a PDF download or in paper pattern form, catering to your preference. If you have any questions about the quilt, the fabrics used, or any other quilting inquiries, don't hesitate to ask in the comments below the video.
