Fall is in the air!

I have made a lot of quilts since I started quilting, but really don't have anything seasonal.  I want seasonal quilts!  I have many patterns and some kits for Fall and Christmas quilts, but I don't have the time to make anything big, so I just keep putting it off.  Yesterday I couldn't stand it anymore and had to make SOMETHING for fall!

It started out like this (4" finished block)...

 Then turned into this...

 It's kinda cute all sewn together!  But, I needed more!  And it had to include wool...

 Ahhh...that's better!  And Ozzie obviously approves!
I stitched on it last night - stay tuned to see where it goes from here!

I LOVE these trees.  We live in the country and my husband planted these Amur Maple trees in our yard - they block our view of the road (which is a good thing!).  Aren't they gorgeous?  I just wish they were outside of my sewing room windows so I could see them all day long.  Now I only get a view of them if I leave home, or walk to the mailbox.  But, he just told me that he has a few more planted in pots, so hopefully he will put them where I can see them easily from my favorite room in the house!

Enjoy this beautiful Fall day!
