Autumn Moons

I have my blocks all finished now for my Autumn Moons quilt. I am still thinking of moving a block around, or maybe making an extra one.  My blocks are a bit bigger than the pattern, so I made the sashing a bit wider around the Maple Leaves. I am drawn to these colours, much as I am the rainbow colours. I saw the Quilt of Belonging on the weekend and it was amazing. I had seen photos of it before, but they definitely did not do it justice. It is a work of art and a testament to the amazing creativity of quilters.

Autumn leaves appreciation

 My autumn leaves are almost done for my Autumn Moons quilt.I need to put a frame around the last one. This is another scrap appreciation quilt.

It has been great putting a quilt together that I don't need to agonize over picking out fabric. I keep finding treasures in my closet that work with this quilt. I can't wait to get it set out on my floor. My goal with these quilts is to appreciate everything I do have.

Scrap Appreciation

As the years of quilting accumulate I must say that I appreciate the scrap quilt more and more. Years of quilting also means years of accumulating fabrics. It is so nice to see a quilt you want to make and be able to start it right away because you already have all of the fabrics. This will become an autumn quilt and I am so excited to have started it. It is one that I have been wanting to make for a long time. The one block is actually gold and purple and I love the idea of having purple in the quilt. A nice, easy and stress free quilt is what I need right now.
