Thinking Ahead to Autumn

Hello Everyone,

Every once and awhile I get an idea that I can't get out of my head and I have to take action.  I've had an idea for an Autumn quilt for quite some time now and I pulled a couple of test blocks together.

These are 10" blocks and each block has 6 different fabrics.

Potential idea for a border, or sashing or whatever.

I started pulling fabrics together so I could really see what I have on hand to incorporate into the design.

I can see from this picture that I need more reds in my stash of fall colors.  I've been collecting this group of fabrics for years.  I think it's time to use them now.

You will be seeing this quilt come alive over the next few months.  I have some of the quilt designed on paper, but most of it is floating around in my brain and needs to get into the computer and turned into a new design.  I wish I could just plug a cord into my ear and have it all download into a file on my computer.  That would be so much easier!

As always,



  1. Oh man! I love all of your color choices, you have the best taste in fabrics! And I love your block too. I think it is an awesome choice, can't wait to see your progress. KUDOS!
