Autumn Sewing

I finished a quilt that I pieced last summer.  It felt appropriate to do so as the colors matched the color palette I was seeing out my window.

Strong winds blew all the leaves off the trees in the front and then across the street into the neighbor's yard.  No more crunch time when I go out for the mail but I'll bet the yard guy will be glad to see those leaves gone.

The pattern for this quilt is Madeline, a Schnibbles pattern from Rosie and Co.

I made it from a charm pack (or two) of Dancing in the Rain by Laundry Basket.

I did very simple machine quilting.  This backing and stop border fabric is very subtle but has a cross weave of the colors in this fabric line.  I really like it.

Love the colors in this fabric line.

You may have noticed the rainbows dancing about.  Hubby has been working on a project.  Please enter into the crystal palace.  We are very Pollyanna-ish around here this week.

When the sun comes over the mountain or from behind a cloud,

we are dappled with dancing rainbows.  He is hoping all that color will help me manage winter because it is coming and soon.

This is my other fallish project.  Apples and more apples.

Aren't they the cutest?  I piece them up during the day and hand applique the stems and leaves at night in front of the TV.

Looks like there is a favorite flavor apple for everyone.

Still have about 20 more to go.  An apple or more a day I guess.

What fun projects! Fall's my absolute favorite time of year, especially in places like Utah where you can enjoy all that Autumn beauty. Savor it for me!

It was actually cold today, can you believe that?! Fall is here! Will you be here on Nov. 12? That's the day of my first Battle Of The Books battle.
