Enchanted Autumn - Section #2

Hello Everyone,

What started as pieces, is now all put together for section #2 for Enchanted Autumn.  I said I wasn't going to re-do any of the blocks that have been sitting in a drawer for the last  five years....but I didn't say I wasn't going to remove some of the stitches that were very visible and re-do them!  Overall, for my very first attempt at applique five years ago, it isn't too bad.

So one football playoff game later......this section is finished.  This little bird block was all finished except for the purple/magenta berries.  What a difference with the berries.  They add so much color.

This was my first ever Bear Paw block.  It too, is far from perfect....but it is going to stay just the way it is.

I am determined to finish this UFO this year before October!  I may even have it finished by September so I can enjoy it just that much longer.  My version is a little 'brighter' than the original which suits me and will brighten up the area where it will be hanging.

You haven't heard a peep out of me for the last few days because I've been spending good quality time with the little man in my life, Jess.

Walks with Zinny and picnics in the snow.  Life just doesn't get any better....unless all of the little kids were with me.

Don't forget to enter the contest for the Wilder Family Cookbook.  The drawing will be held this Friday, 11/21/2001.  You can also enter by sending an email to     Good Luck!

As always,


  1. Fantastic blocks, Lynn! I love the colors! I've been finishing up UFO's as well - it really is a great feeling to finish! Zinny is adorable - how fun to have lots of time with him!

  2. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt. Blocks look pretty good to me! Jess is just as sweet as can be. I bet he loves to take walks with you and Zinny!!

  3. The colors in your UFO are beautiful. I just don't know how you pick colors so well. Can I join the contest twice? LOL

  4. Oh that is going to be such a beautiful quilt! You have only been doing applique for five years? Did I read that right? That means there might be hope for me!

  5. You're right, those berries do make an amazing differencce. I love the colours you used in this quilt and can see why you want it finished before October.

    Jess looks so cute, specially when he's enjoying his picnic.

  6. Well it sure would be nice if your own daughter would get an updated version of that family cookbook...Zinny better pick her sister.... :)
