Fall Vibes : :

I love to match my quilt-making with the seasons! Pastel quilts in the Spring inspired by the lengthening sunsets, the rebirth of each bloom, and the freshness of the leaves. Colorful, happy quilts in the Summer to remind me of the golden sunshine and the beautiful flowers that the garden gives that time of year. And now, as Autumn is setting in once again, I have to confess that it's my most favorite! All year long I look forward to the family of pumpkins and containers of mums that will take over our front porch. The warm yellow, orange-red palette is calling me to make a quilt, and so...

Eighty-one Plus quilt blocks later, after a weekend spent cutting and chain-piecing here and there, I am already in the final stages of making my first quilt top for this new season that is just beginning! This one really came together so much faster and easier than I thought it would. A simple quilt with lots and lots of color!

I'll be back soon with a finished quilt top to share!

  5. Looking forward to seeing what this quilt will look like all put together! Since becoming a quilter, the seasons have opened my eyes to so much more of the beauty the behold. Even though all of the gorgeous colors of fall are enticing, somehow Christmas has grabbed hold of creative side and I am in the process of making blocks for a couple of Christmas quilts for gifts and Project Linus. Thank you for sharing and I will be watching for the post of the finished Fall quilt. Have a fantastic creative day!
