Autumn Splendor is done!

It is finished. At least for me it is.

In the last months packet, they included an eggplant purple for an inner border and than a coral/orange floral for the outer border that just wasn’t my style. As is, it measures 63 1/2 by 75. On Facebook, I saw pictures of last years sampler BOM that did not include a border and I really liked it. Also, this isn’t the type of quilt I will put on a bed. Will look great on the quilt rack or a hanger for show so it really doesn’t need to be any larger. My quilter assured me that all those seams on the edge won’t matter so I am happy with my decision. Here are a few pictures of some of the sections as I put it together.

Love the pears and flower block.

The fabric in the geese was also to be used for the border.

Love the leaves and acorns!

These leaves were also fun to make, even if the stem was appliqued on. I really need to up my game on that.

Jeanette is coming on Friday!! I am so excited to have her come to visit. I have two tops ready for her to quilt and am hoping to get a third completed, but it is doubtful.

Tree of Life blocks

I started this perhaps two years ago now. Time goes so fast. For my cousin in Colorado. Need to make three more trees, than put it all together. And yes, I know that top tree is missing a piece. There are actually two blocks that have that same error. I am okay with it. Hope Joanie will be too!
