Fall is such a great time of year, even in Florida where we don't see much color change. Of all my fireplace quilts, this might be my favorite. It was the last one I made during my NYB series (8 in all). I pulled in the clay/red color and made the golds a little stronger - love this one! It almost glows at night.
My hand pieced and hand quilted apple core is always a favorite. It's a good size and has so many wonderful memories attached to it.
This little fall wallhanging used to hang in my office in my ever changing series of "Office Art", but now it gets to hang out in my living room, making me smile. The applique is all by hand and it's hand quilted. This is one of the quilts I've made using the "One of a Kind" method. Love it!!
This last one is one I haven't shown before. I made this quilt in 2003-2004. We had just gotten this new couch and of course I had to make a quilt to match.
I'm not sure what this pattern is called, but it was fun and easy. I carried this pillow around with me for weeks, making sure the fabrics would match.
It matches so well it almost doesn't show up!! This was one of the last "utility" quilts I hand quilted before I started learning to machine quilt. Now I pretty much save the hand quilting for 1st time baby quilts for the grands and the quilts I put in the quilt show.
It's not a really "wow" quilt, but was perfect for what I was trying to achieve.
Have a great day,
