October Eye Candy

With the hint of fall in the air, 
it's time to put away the summer quilts 
and exchange them for quilts the colors of fall.

Thought I'd show you 3 different styles from my collection.
"Have a Wonderful Fall", 2007

One of the few quilts that I have made with a jelly roll.
(precut 2 1/2" strips)
The colors and fabrics are bright and vibrant and whimsical.

"Harvest Home" 2004

This quilt was a free Moda pattern.  I put it together
for the shop as a sample to sell the kits we made.
It's the deeper, richer, more subdued colors of fall.
The pattern is more traditional.

"Crazy Pumpkins", 2006

The pumpkins are hand appliqued with different
embroidery stitches creating the pumpkin patterns.
Definitely, folk art influenced.
It was made all from my stash.
It's a good study of tertiary color scheme,
purple, orange and green.

There were several of my friends working on the same project
at the same time. They can be very motivating in completing a project.

Now is the time to pull out those fall decorations.
And quilts make it perfect.

Until Next Time-Kyle
