This little quilt was a Country Threads pattern in 2002 and the original quilt was sold when we closed. It’s too good not to remake it!
The first time I made it I used brighter colors for the leaves but as I thought about it I realized that we don’t get such vibrant leaves so this time I toned it down. I always think of early fall days being golden so that’s why my background pieces have a yellow cast. Here’s another view.
This is the backside of the playhouse where I hung my dried gourds.
Someone asked how I get the binding on so fast. I do it all by machine, that’s how!
I quilted with straight lines as usual.
Yes, you can order Sugar Maple for $3 and include a mailing label. We’d welcome a stamped business size envelope but it’s not required.
On September 1 we will introduce the 2 Hour Couch Quilt. Connie and I each made one with different decorator fabric from Hobby Lobby and the photos have already been taken. Since the couch quilt is timeless and Sugar Maple should be made NOW, we will hold up the couch quilt pattern. On October 1 we will introduce a Christmas quilt so you’ll have time to sew it before you decorate your home.
Last Saturday Gayle’s son, Chris, helped Reed and me clean the barn. It smells so good with new bedding and I am so thankful for his help! He said it was nothing but it was everything to me!
I leave you with visions of maple leaves dancing in your head!
