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!

Just love "Fallville" and your borders really are nice. It is great when a project comes together and comes out beautiful as yours! "Lucy" was a fun top to make and you will love how nicely the pattern comes together....I love mine and also think Thelma is making another....enjoy!

You have been really busy! I love your version of Fallville. I didn't know there was a pattern available - or did you just modify Summerville? It's always a great feeling when you can just use fabrics from your stash.

So many lovely quilts! The Fallville one stitched up beautifully in that color pallet...and, of course, I like the spool blocks...as well as the Fig Tree All Wrapped Up! You are showing us so much inspiration to start our Sundays! :-)

The Fallvilles are really pretty and I LOVE those spool blocks.

I love your Fallville quilt. As always you are working on fun projects and it is always great to catch up with what you are working on. I am trying so hard to finish some things up before starting anything new. I have the fabrics for the Fig Tree quilt you are planning to start. I would love to start cutting in to the fabric.
