Falling For You Blog Hop

 


I would like to first thank Joan of Moosse Stash Quilting for hosting this Hop.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  The brilliant change of colors, the fruits and veggies of the season, the smells, and the cooler temps.

This hop was perfect to push a finish on a quilt top that I made during Carol's "Autumn Jubilee" quilt along last year.  She is hosting another Jubilee all October and you can read about it HERE



A fun row quilt of Fall inspired blocks.  To compliment it I added a patch work of green wovens for the outer border and just quilted with a large open meander in a thread called "Corn Silk".  Hey, they are harvesting the feed corn now in our valley - so it seemed appropriate.




My favorite blocks were the fussy cut for the stars and scrappy clean up for the points.




I had this rust, orange backing in my stash for many years (Connecting Threads 'Heritage Bouguet') and glad I found a quilt to use it with.  I used it for the binding, too - a little more orange to round it out.

Weekend of Fun

 


Today is National Sew A Jelly Roll Day so take some time to play.  There are a lot of free patterns on-line or make it up as you go.  No Jelly Roll!  Make Your own by pulling some fabrics and cut some 2.5" strips.  And make it a weekend of fun sewing - why just one day.


Then get ready for some Fall Project(s) inspiration.  My favorite season and colors.

Sewingly Your,

Sharon

Quilt Guild Fun

 


On Saturday I taught the minature selvedge piece to members of The Cairo Piecemakers quilt guild.  We talked about the selvedge and I had pieces from early fabrics right up to the newest lines - simple to works of art.   



A Tula Pink lover and I love how she chose the Tabby Road and her silohouette was a kitty.


Some great color going on here and she is planning a herd of deer across the piece.


Another - many  that were so different due to the fabric stashes  used by each member and silohouettes again represented the quilter.  There were butterflies, cats, several birds, animals, and Fall fruits.


AND on Tuesday my quilt guild - Schoharie Valley Piecemakers - had a class on reverse dyeing.  I will share more on that as I get more photos sent to me.

Sewingly Yours,

Sharon
