Our long and beautiful fall weather has been just wonderful this year, but alas all good things do end. Now the wind is blowing a gale, trees are bending and the feeling of true fall is everywhere as leaves blow wildly around to get caught in fences and water troughs. I have been thinking of the holidays, and tried to learn a new quilting technique that was fun, fast, and ended up well even for me!! This one is a table runnner, but I can go on and make full sized quilts using this idea, also pillow covers, placemats, and other decorations all fast and easy. I am giving this To my fellas sister this year and hope she likes it. The flower is a poinsettia, here it is closer.
In the past, I have enjoyed making quilts, but really didn't do them well. Now I want to learn to do them much better - - - but would rather do my pastels!!! So this will be a challenge. Here are a couple of older ones I did in the 80's.
This "Cat" one is a wall hanging that I never hung!!
and this is another table runner for the holidays I also never used! I must rectify this! Anyhow, for this next spring I am planning a full sized quilt in violets and yellow and hope I actually make it. There is thankfully so much to do! Hope all of you are having a great fall, and into the holidays we go!
