Autumn decorating with my Fall Flight quilt from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! Fall has officially arrived in Minnesota. Not only has the calendar turned over to September, but we are already experiencing much cooler weather. That was my signal to start a bit of autumn decorating, which I wanted to share with you.

Last year when we moved into this home, I hung my Pumpkin Sky wall hanging in our dining room, and I really loved that look.  But this year I wanted to feature my new autumn quilt, Fall Flight. I decided to hang it over the antique door that leads into the room, and then decorate the ...

Autumn quilt ideas and a layer cake giveaway! from Carried Away Quilting

Just a few months ago, I was whining to you about the spring snowstorms we were experiencing in central Minnesota. Well, I’m back with a new weather complaint today . . . it’s 92 degrees F, with a “feels like” temperature of 100 due to the high humidity. Good grief, that’s hot!

While I don’t want to wish away my summer, my mind can’t help but console itself with the thought that in just a few months, autumn will be here. Right now I’m imagining myself taking a long walk wearing bluejeans and a sweatshirt, tromping on ...

New pattern: Fall Flight from Carried Away Quilting

Autumn is my favorite season. Like many of you, I cherish signs of fall:  the spectacle of leaves turning vibrant shades of red, gold and orange; the glimpse of a harvest moon hanging low in the sky; the sight and sound of geese migrating south; and, of course, fields of pumpkin patches and roadside pumpkin stands. In Minnesota, we savor every last bit of autumn in preparation for the long winter that follows.

Every year as summer draws to a close, I feel a thrill when I pull out my autumn quilts for display and snuggling. Today I’m excited ...

~ The Inspiration ~ from Podunk Pretties

I'm often asked what inspires my quilt patterns.  That's a hard question to answer because most of the time it's a collection of ideas stored in my brain over time until I feel the need to put them all together into a quilt.  With this quilt I had an idea that was growing but needed a little something more.  Before continuing with my inspiration for this quilt let me say's hard to believe I'm actually enjoying these colors.  Orange, black, gray and purple rarely find their way into my quilts. So let me tell ...

Fall Foliage from My Quilt Infatuation

My Fall Foliage quilt is finished and I am so excited to share it.  If you missed my last post, this quilt is destined for someone who loves everything about the fall season.  The muted palette of this quilt is way outside of the norm for me but it definitely screams autumn, and I know she is going to love it.

The scattered maple leaf blocks finish at 16 inches and 8 inches, and I designed them with plenty of negative space to keep them looking like they are floating gracefully down the quilt.  I love how the Kona Khaki ...

Leaves in the Forest Step 1 from twiddletails

I get a huge amount of satisfaction from checking things off lists. I guess I get a kick out of seeing visual proof of my progress toward the end of any task.
My version of a "list" for the "Leaves in the Forest" quilt is a progress diagram. I'm ahead of the game right now, but I have a couple of trips planned in the next few months (did someone say Quilt Festival?!?!?), so I need to be proactive.

The goal for the first part of the Quilt a Forest quilt along is to make 6 of Block #1 ...

~ On a Roll ~ from Podunk Pretties

 Hi-diddly-O Friends!  For the first time ever working out of my color comfort zone is actually fun.  Whoa...must have something to do with Mercury being in retrograde.  I've no idea what that means, all I know is right now the planet Mercury is doing some weirdo stuff and some say it makes strange things happen.  OOOOO....SPOOKY STUFF!  

Well.... out here in Podunk strange stuff happens everyday.  Spooky?  Sometimes...but that's a story for another day.  We'll stick to the strange stuff today.   Example....yesterday morning while letting the chickens out to roam I noticed this ...

~ Fall is in the Air~ from Podunk Pretties

Hi Sweet Quilty Friends!  We had some unseasonably cool weather last week.  It only lasted a couple of days but it was long enough to get the love of Autumn kick started.  Well going shopping at Hobby Lobby was also a big help.  The fall decor this year is loaded with black gingham.  Yeah gingham!  You all know my love of gingham....ANY COLOR!  The starts of a new series of quilt patterns has begun.  Inspiration is a funny thing, you just never know when or where it will happen or where it will lead once it strikes. 

While prepping ...

Quilt a Fall Forest from twiddletails

Wow! I'm not even going to attempt to commit to regular posting AGAIN. I'll try though.

As for right now, I'm in the middle of planning a new quilt, thanks to a quilt-along hosted by The Quilt Tree.
I've wanted to make another version of my Geese in the Forest pattern for a while now and this was just the kick in the butt I needed.

I decided on a Fall version with possibly a few maple leaf blocks scattered here and there.

My chosen fabrics are Moda Bella Solids (of course...).
I've added some ...
