Happy Fall

I love this time of year.
The trees are so pretty.

Even my sewing has changed direction.

Happy Fall!

I feel Fall Coming

Well, this journey started at a Senior Centers quilt show in Malad Idaho.

I saw it there and have wanted to make my own ever since.

I took my time.

In fact, I'm not done, 
but I have some other things to take care.

When I see the leaves change,
it reminds me that I have Christmas projects that need finished.

So, I will wait to put the border on this quilt
and finish some projects.

Like this one.

I'm giving this one to my sister, the cook.

Enjoy the season.

Very nice people there.

The colors were changing.

But I loved this naturally distressed look
of a building near the railroad tracks 
in Bancroft Idaho.

I love Fall.

The flowers.
I am scared to look and see how many 1 1/2 inch squares I get to cut out.

I can't wait to see a finished product.

Minky Backs

 When I made this quilt,  I envisioned a bright pink minky back. I found the minky  (on Amazon and it is a nice minky) and t...
