Autumn Splendor

Howdy blogging buddies!!! I have got bunches to post about - some quilty, some not quilty, but this post is a short one. I entered a quilt in the weekly contest (I usually don't do this kind of thing - but others have and I have enjoyed going and voting for them! Plus, what great inspiration  - like we need more!!) over at Quilting Gallery. So if you are so inclined, hope on over and give me a vote - plus any others that inspire you (there's a bunch of great ones!!) Plus, you might win a prize just for voting!!

Here's my quilt - "Autumn Splendor".



 Here's a few close ups of the fmq. I've found that I LOVE making leaves!!






Today, Gracen is ONE YEAR OLD!!!! I'll post more later!!

Be filled with joy!!

Hi my friend, I'm so glad you posted and can't wait to hear more but firstly, your quilt is incredible. I've been working on a quilt that was for winter but my oldest daughter loves it so much I'm stitching like crazy so I can give it to her for her birthday in Oct.
Love your FMQ! I will go and vote right now. I so needed to read your last sentence as well.
Love, Noreen

Fall is my favorite season and my favorite colors so your new quilt strikes my fancy quite well.

Wow! Is is possible for that sweet little girl to be one-year-old already? Congrats! And I love your quilt - such fun fall colors. Sawtooth-bordered blocks are my favorites!
