Early Fall

32 comments
I'm not rushing to Halloween or Thanksgiving but I do like to change it up in my entryway when the days start getting shorter and the nights start getting cooler. And hey, its Quilt Month so I need to show a new quilt I've never shown before on our blog.

I made this quilt a few years ago from a pattern in a quilt magazine. Because of the vintage orange fabric I like to put it up in my entry way in the fall. I am pretty sure it is from the 60's (or early 70's?) and in my favorite style - vintage kitchen.

I like the theme of dishes on shelves and it makes me smile when I see it. It was a really fun quilt to make. As I said, I got the idea from a pattern in a magazine but I did change it, of course.

And I don't think it's too early to put out my little fall table topper with blue birds.

Of course I changed my front porch flag. Its time for pumpkins and harvest. You can see the wind was blowing yesterday when I took this picture. This is such a fun and easy flag. Kim made one of my flags and has it finished on her blog. She even hand quilted it. I'm impressed.

I love the border fabric around the plates. It is time to think about fall isn't it? It's my favorite time of year.

Great quilt! I think I've had that vintage (border) print before.
And oh my, the blue bird runner is so cute! I'd have that out all year long.

I love your plates but I love your bluebirds even more!

Sandra said...

Great projects, and I agree that the birds need to stay out all year round!

Throwing in my vote for the birds year round they are adorable. The pumpkins are great. I love scrappy.

Love the birdies! They are too cute! Great colors on the pumpkin flag! Your pictures/quilts/runner are beautiful!

Kim said...

your birdies are adorable. Tonight I looked at your Tumbler Bows pattern and worked on some tumblers tonight - the thimble size 1 3/4" finished tall-lol. Amish solids- gonna be cute. THanks for the comment on my pumpkin banner- hubby actually hung the hanger for it tonight so I have 2 of 3 of your banners hanging :)

What gorgeous quilts. After the rain and cool nights the quilts are looking cozy. I'm signing up for a beginning quilt class at Pipers. What do you think? Mimi

That vintage fabric makes that quilt! It's great and the shelf effect is so cute. But...those little birds are so cute. So many choices-you are one talented girl.
Luv, Nerm

The plate quilt is so cute. I am ready to decorate for fall but the kids are still waiting for a good dose of SUMMER so I feel like I should hold off. Fall is my favorite time of year though. I like that pumpkin banner - great greeting :D
