Almost Forgot

I'm starting to decorate and remembered that I forgot to post abut my "harvest" fireplace quilt. This was part of the series of New York Beauty block quilts I did several years ago. In this one, I added the deep barn red which is kind of the signature color for my room.
These are really such deep, rich colors - probably not for everyone, but perfect for me.:). I'll be changing this out for the Christmas one, so wanted to share it.
The kitty is hard to see, he's in the upper left corner (center).

Until next time,
-Karen

I just love this quilt! Where could I get a hold of the pattern or a description of how to make these blocks. I'd like to do one in blue, gold and red...It would sit very nicely in our lounge

A gorgeous piece. I like that you have it in a frame. And it looks good on your fireplace. I just had my husband hang a quilt over our fireplace. I did have a fancy piece on the fireplace mantle of crazy quilting a friend did for me.

What a wonderful quilt!! I just love spikes and this one is no exception. Just gorgeous and I love where you have placed it above your fireplace.

That's a beautiful quilt, I love New York Beauty quilts. Your framed quilts are a great idea. Obviously you can easily change them... is each one mounted on it's own board? Can you explain how it works? Beautiful blog, lots to admire!
