This is so perfect to have this quilt to show on the first day of Autumn. Yes. Today is the first day of fall , Y’all! I love fall! I love so much about fall ….but I really love apples, cinnamon, crisp clean air and the preparations for winter. I can find something to love about every season……
Annette made this beauty. You all know she is the Queen of Scrappy quilts..she makes them for me all of the time….and I quilt for her. This is one of hers. 🙂
She wanted leaves incorporated in the quilting…but of course. I used leaves as the border and background design…..I used a variegated thread called “Cornfield” for this quilt. It had all the perfect colors. It blends in pretty well…so it’s not real noticeable. But kind of a nice touch for the veins on the big leaves.
Annette always does a great job…and I love all of her ideas! Beautiful!
And here’s a picture of the back.
I also thought I would share a little Poem about Fall:
“An Autumn Day”
Tell me when the days turn cold
And the crisp, bitter nights set in
I’ll bid adieu, adieu to the sun
And embrace the northern winds
Wake me from my restless sleep
For the trees will crackle soon
And shed their cumbersome coats and dance
bare with me and the moon
My mouth how it waters in pure delight
Dreaming of scented dregs
Cinnamon, pumpkin, apple spice
Swirling in my head!
And on Halloween, I’ll await you where
The headless one rides by
chasing after phantom fools
and so this nigh shall I,
September days may shorten in length
October evenings can fright
November rains may fall and freeze
Over the Samoan night
but deep within the heart
Of the dormant Earth
The little buds await the Fall
To ensure them of rebirth
And so I sit much like them
Dependant in every way
Upon the plentiful harvest,
Of an autumn day.
I hope you all have a blessed Fall!xoxxoC
