A little more fall

I've come across a few more of my fall quilts. Sadly, some are still in ufo condition. I had high hopes of finishing up quilts when we moved to the new house, but that is all put on hold for the moment. But it is amazing what a little creative folding can do when you want to showcase a quilt ;-)

This next pattern was in American Patchwork & Quilting magazine a few years ago. If you receive the All People Quilt newsletter, I think they offered this quilt again. It is supposed to have rake and some leaves appliqued.

I made this one from a pattern in a book I checked out of the library. I've used this tablerunner on the coffee table but this year it will grace our dining room table.


I hope you are having an enjoyable day. The weather cooled off a bit here this morning. The birds were chattering and fusing. Love this time of year.

Happy quilting!

GORGEOUS table runner! Fall is my favorite season, and being that I live in the land of no seasons (Florida), I have to get all my fall-fixes inside. I'm working on a table runner myself right now!

I love fall! Thanks for showing us your beautiful fall quilt and that gorgeous table runner. We usually host the family Thanksgiving dinner at our house, but this year we have a grandbaby due in the NE that week. So, I won't be decorating our table. But, I guess I could anyway, just for us to enjoy. But, my husband uses our dining room table as his office! Drives me crazy, but oh well.
Any way, thanks for getting me more in the mood for fall. When it is still in the 90s outside, it is hard.

Autumn greetings to you. I loved seeing all your autumn quilts and decor. I just finished a wall hanging for a present but seeing your quilts makes me want to get into my stash and start a new project.
Thanks for sharing.

Jocelyn, your quilts are all lovely and I am enjoying your Fall decorations. As I've said on other blogs, I usually decorate for Fall but hubby is having some health issues and I'm just not in the mood to decorate my house this year...so I'm just enjoying all the decorations at my blog friends' homes!

XOXO,

Cyndi
