Happy Thanksgiving! One of my Favorite Fall Quilts! Fall Festival by Nancy Halverson

Still one of my Favorite Fall Quilts! It's fun to go back and look at one of my first quilts. I just love the pumpkins and the little boys pants. The purple fabric on that little girl. The sunflower button on her hat. ;o) Can you see the applique stitching? This is what prompted me to get my brother sewing machine. This block was appliqued with a shortened hem stitch on my old, old heavy duty metal machine.
 This corn on the cob block was hemmed with the blanket stitch on the brother. Much better!

                               Turkey! still one of the best pumpkin fabrics I've ever had. (background)

I love the baskets with their little button grapes. Those blocks were so fun to make.

I don't remember who's idea is was to put the rooster button in the barn!

This block I altered. I wanted some wool felt and acorns in this quilt. That means I can't wash it, but - oh well. If I had it to do over, I might do those vines a little different. ;o)
In this block you may be able to see the machine quilting. Straw colored leaves and meandering.

School houses! and I always love flying geese block trees.

I added some wool pennies to the this quilt in the centers of the sunflowers. love love love !

Here's another block and that motivated me to get another sewing machine that did a prettier satin stitch. Maybe you can see how uneven the edging is? maybe not. :o)
