I got myself busy a couple weeks ago on a commission for my Morning Sun quilt. This is only the second time I’ve made the quilt, but I’m so glad I got the chance to. I’d forgotten how fun this one is to work on and how unique it is to many of the other quilt patterns I’ve done in the past.
I wasn’t given any instruction on the quilt, only to make a version and so I chose colors that I’ve been feeling lately. I really enjoyed this one! View my previous version here.
I have wanted to make another of these since my last one, but you know how time gets away. It’s been just over a year since my last version. The last time I made it was part of a quilt along I did in 2018, so the pattern is written quilt along style. Still simple enough to follow though and everything is broken down into sections.
I put a lot of thought into this latest version and stressed over each and every fabric choice, but I’m so glad I did. I really like how it’s turned out.

The center part of the quilt is where my eyes go to immediately. It has a very large Dresden plate sitting on top of larger half square triangles. The Dresden plate is very unique in that it’s pointed and finished on both ends. This way that hourglass shape from the half square triangles meeting can show. I love the look, and it’s so easy to achieve.
This is surprisingly a fairly quicker quilt to make.
I tried to stay Fall-ish with my color palette, basically as much gold as possible with a sprinkling of a few other colors. I haven’t used gold and green together yet and I’m glad I did. Still not over the gold yet, y’all. In fact I have another mostly gold quilt on my mind.
With the exception of how I did the background (scrappy low volume), this quilt doesn’t use many different fabrics. There’s only a handful which makes it a bit different from my other quilt patterns.
Diagonal Seam Tape
Diagonal Seam Tape is a perfect solution for sewing straight diagonal seams without having to mark any lines!
Since it was a commission quilt, I opted for the quick and easy meander quilting, although I did tighten it up and make it a bit more dense. Still looks over quilted to me and it’s a trend I’m loving right now.
