The Colors of Autumn


This is my Fallville quilt that I started 
the first week in October! 
Cupcake n Daisies and I decided to have a sew along together...
of course she finished first... Thelma is pretty speedy!



But I wanted to do a my borders a little bit
different that the pattern and it took me 
extra time to think it through.

In the end I'm happy with the way it turned out
and as a bonus....

it was made with fabric from my stash!


Last fall I made Vintage by Thimble Blossoms.
I used October Skies fabrics... so I was happy to use up
my scraps and now I will get them both quilted for next year!



Last weekend I worked on a few of my 
Beees Knees Sewing Bee blocks that I needed to get 
caught up on.

I love the fabrics in these Bear Paw blocks!



And I also made a couple of fun Spool blocks
with a low volume background!


I still have fall quilting to do work on before I get started on this
new kit by Fig Tree & Co.
... but it's nice to open the package and fondle the fabrics!

My project for this weekend is Lucy!

I haven't made one yet 
but now have
a great assortment of orange, black and grey
and I think I can get it done while it's still fall
but
not 
before 
Halloween!

That's okay with me because 
the colors of Autumn
 come and go too quickly...

I just want to enjoy it as much as I can.

Enjoy your weekend,
I'm glad you stopped by!

Tablerunner Bliss Tuesday!

I had forgotten just how enjoyable it was to whip up a
table runner until I got my hands on this book by Sherri Falls...
and made my first runner from Tablerunner Bliss!
Most of the projects are made out of 6 or less blocks...
definitely a small time commitment and before you know it you
 have a 
runner made!

I hope you have been following the blog hop 
and seeing the Tablerunner Tuesday posts!

Here is some eye candy from Jolly Jabber:

This is a fun one for this season!

Today I am sharing the Comfort and Joy Runner...
here is my version:

I started with this fun holiday collection by Basic Grey...


Here is a progress shot:




This has such an interesting design...
the interlocking blocks are really unique!
I'm glad I made this one!





This is the version in Sherri's book:
