Autumn Quilt

I thought I'd share my Autumn Quilt which came back from my long arm quilter, Sandy Lachowski,  last month.   I'm so bad at getting blog posts done in a timely manner, but at least I'm showing it to you before Christmas.

This is a pattern by Heart to Hand and I did it as a block of the month through Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop.   I was working on this during our move but managed to keep up which was a feat all itself.

It fits perfectly on my quilt hanger in the dining area.





Look at the quilted leaves in the border.


And the circles which she "echoed".


I wish you could actually get the feel of the quilting.  It's so hard to show it in pictures.





Well, at least I showed it to you before fall is over.    I've been getting some "grief" from people about my blogging schedule.   All in good fun, they tell me they wish I'd post more often.  I even have a friend who tells me the date of my last post.   (Yes, Mary Ratcliffe, that would be you!)   I'm going to try...really I am, but I'll never be like Anna, Paulette and Kim who find enough to blog about EVERY. DAY.   How do they find that much to talk about?    My hat goes off to them.   I guess my life is just not that interesting.  LOL.


Oh, by the way, this "thing" I showed in my last post.....


well, it was used by wallpaper hangers.  They would lay their large boards on top and add the paste to the back of the paper.   It's adjustable, so the people using them could customize it to their desired heights.  (kind of like our cutting tables).   Aren't you glad you have me here to keep you all informed?  hehehehe

Toodle Loo, Anne

Great quilt! Love it of course! I'm with you, I just don't blog all that often...unless folks want to see what I do in daily life like cleaning, cooking, Hee! Some bloggers can take a simple task of gluing wool onto a piece of cotton and turning that into a great blog post too. Not me, bet this is how you feel too.

Beautiful work, Anne! You can call it your "Moving Quilt"! Ha - I had one of those, too, and I think it's the only thing that kept me sane during that time. I love all your little touches on the leaves - well - just everything! Thanks for the trivia on the rack, too!
Cheers!

So beautiful, your colours capture the feel of Autumn so beautifully. I also like the seat you have in front of the quilt.

Well,Anne, I guess I live a boring life as well because I could never find something to blog about every day either! But I LOVE reading what others have to say who lead less boring lives than us. *smile*

Your Autumn quilt is spectacular! Is that where your Comfort & Joy will be hanging? Can't wait to see it!

Thanks for sharing your candy...the "eye" candy i.e.
