First Days of Autumn

#QuiltBee: Rhubarb Crisp quilted table runner
The leaves have started to change and the temps are decidedly chillier. What better way to welcome autumn than with my new Rhubarb Crisp runner?

The colours really do invoke the coming change in the landscape - all of those rich reds, golds and greens. And all of those itty bitty geese and stars - what can I say? Luv. Thank you Jo Morton.

You will recall that I made three of these runners, two of which will be used for charitable causes. The one that I kept for myself has the larger of the two backing prints, which I love, but it is still proving to be a challenge to get an accurate photo of it. Ah well.

Happy autumn!

After seeing/quilting them Roberta took my tiny flying geese BlocLoc ruler for a spin and is now totally hooked. She picked up a set for herself and seems to be firmly entrenched in the 'star chamber'. Not quite sure what they will be used for yet, maybe a Christmas version of the runner, but she just can't pull herself away from them. Whatever it is, you know its going to be beautiful....M

A lovely combination of stars and geese in colors that welcome fall. I can never decide which I prefer, light geese with dark backgrounds or dark geese on light backgrounds. Every version is good but yours is a delight. Enjoy using it this autumn.

Just beautiful! When I first saw your photos, I thought you had quilted the pumpkin, too, and it is so lifelike! Then I realized it's a centerpiece... oh well, it's still beautiful!
