A little more fall decorating.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures from the last post.   I didn’t realize I had taken so many so figured it would be best to break it into 2 posts. 

Here we go again.   This is a quilt that I  made last year by Heart to Hand called Autumn Quilt.  


I made this one last year too and it’s by Red Button Company.


This next one was made when I first started quilting.   I got the pattern from a little shop in Kennewick, WA which has since closed up shop.   The motifs are part of a panel that was cut apart.   I really like the way they designed the sashing.  It was a real challenge for the newbie that I was.  


Just finished quilting this one by hand this year.   It’s called Harvest Moon and is by Heart to Hand.


This next framed project was one of the first wool projects I did around 2004.   The pattern is by Primitive Gatherings.




If you remember, last year Mr CnW made me this box to fill with floral arrangements.  



It measures 12” x 48”.   I change it up every season.  


If you’ve been with me for any time at all, you know that mantles are just not my thing.   I have the hardest time decorating them.   So, this will have to do for this year.  


I love this little box with the bowl fillers.   Karen made them for me.   The box itself was made by blogless Sandy.  


I had the hardest time taking the next 2 pictures.   This setting is on the staircase landing and there is a big window above.   No matter what time of day I tried to take the picture, the lighting was terrible.   So, I just took it after dark and used the flash.  Still not happy with the outcome.   Oh well, a photographer is something I’ve never claimed to be.

The little wall hanging is a seasonal interchangeable banner by Primitive Gatherings.



So, happy fall y’all.    I’ll be back in a couple of days with sewing with Sandy, part October.    Stay tuned.


Hugs, Anne

Your decorations are WONDERFUL!! So many lovely inspirational things to make...and THOSE boxes!! Is there anything that Sandy CAN'T do??

What a delightful post. Each quilt became my favorite, until I saw the next one. : )
Sometimes I get the truest colors taking a photo at night with no lights on (yes, completely dark) and using my flash.
Can't wait for your October Sewing with Sandy!

The long box on your dining room table is so creative. I like that you can change it with the season. I like the idea of the simple fall designs on the bowl fillers too. I have some designs I could do that with.
I look forward to seeing all the project you and your friend have worked on during October.

Sandi said...

I like how yu finished off your first Autumn Quilt, just kovely.

I've done the same Autumn PG banner but went with brighter coloured wools. It's fun to see how people make patterns their own.

Lovely decorating Anne.

I love all of them!!! You did an amazing job on that one you did as a newbie. Isn't it amazing what we can do when we don't know that its supposed to be difficult?
