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.
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)
