boho fall from Making A Lather

I am off to a quilt show in Fishers Indiana today. We have had cold rainy days, with one very nice day exception.  We have had such a pretty fall with yellow  leaves. Last year we didn't have much yellow. I don't know the whys and wherefores, but, I have loved the yellow this year. Most leaves are gone, but a few hang on a little longer.



I can share a few boho heart blocks today from our Friday group. None of these are mine. I may never catch up with the others.





Bohemian decor is a colorful ...

Cheddar & Coal from Appalachian Quilts

It's no secret that Fall is my favorite time of year.  I've talked about it many times on my blog.  When it comes to ordering books and patterns, if there is a pumpkin on it I am a sucker!  As I was shopping for new fall fabric lines, this free pattern showed up.  I instantly saw a cute table topper or wallhanging, and since it had pumpkins....I had to order the whole fabric line!


Just as the food shortages are real, so are the shortages/delays with fabric.  There just isn't a lot of fabric available ...

Welcoming Fall on Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

I hope that you're having a lovely fall (except those of you on the other side of the world who are enjoying Spring!) The leaves are slowly changing here in Ottawa but all of the rain is pulling them down quickly!

I didn't expect to be writing this post today but Muv is very busy getting ready for her daughter's wedding this weekend. I can't imagine how that must feel. So welcome to week 351 of Free Motion Mavericks. I'm still planning the FMQ design for my son's quilt, so here is a look ...

It's Fall Y'all! from I Have A Notion

Its Fall and half of the month of October is nearly gone !!! I would love to say I don't know where it went, but I do! The Markers of FallJust like any other season, I seem to have a full plate this fall. Mentally September always signals that fall is here, for me. Of course, because I am of a certain age Labor Day indicates the end of summer and the start of the school year, and therefore the

Feeling Fall-ish from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've got a million explanations for where I've been. None of them sound nearly as exciting as the truth-- we've been super busy and here, there and everywhere since I last posted; and, while we've been gone, the seasons have changed! I got this pumpkin wall hanging quilted and off the rails before we left. The binding was attached by machine but the handwork was left for the monotonous hours of

September Happenings from From the Strawberry Patch...

We made a quick trip to the campground where our son and his family were staying this week for dinner out on Saturday evening; we wanted to help celebrate our favorite daughter-in-law's birthday (albeit a few days late). They're loving their new camper trailer and finding every excuse that they can to hit the road and explore the sights that our state (and those close by) have to offer. Gregory

Potsticker Fun for Fall from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

This week we introduced our second round of Potstickers for your plants—Fall Fun Potstickers!

When creating these, we really wanted to make something that would be complete so you could take them with you to the doctor, school pick-up, or wherever you go that you might need something easy to stitch. As an added bonus ...

Feeling like Cinderella! from Appalachian Quilts

 I do have to admit, as a kid I loved the story Cinderella.  I wonder if that is where my affinity for pumpkins came from.  I doubt it, but I do love me some pumpkins.  I love pumpkin anything - except don't even think about messing up a perfectly good cup of coffee with some flavored creamer.  That's just me.  (Understand that I don't even like for my food to touch on my plate, nor do I like things swirled in with my plain old ice cream, nor do I have any appreciation for my cake to touch ...

Frayed Edges from Appalachian Quilts

I don't know how anyone can get excited about frayed edges on a quilt, but we do!  I love the way they came out on my Seasonal Table Runners.  They just add some 'depth'.  When it first became a "thing", I just shook my head.  

I have loved this Frayed Edge Pumpkin quilt since I made it.  I love the warmth and coziness it makes me feel.  Then again, I love fall!  I love the burning candles, the rustling leaves and the smell of wood burning in a campfire or stove.  I love the crispness of the air when ...

Leaving It On The Table from From the Strawberry Patch...

I mentioned this work table last week, it's exactly what I'd been hoping for when I'm doing ruler-work on the front side of the longarm. I had been improvising with a sheet of foam core (any port in a storm, right?), I needed something to hold my tools above the surface of the quilt while I worked my way along.Mr. Goodneedle picked up the hints that I was dropping and created the work table that

Rising from the leaves from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone, and happy weekend! Well, we seem to have made it through yet another week. Every week I'm surprised when Friday comes, but I'm always glad to see it. Our weather here has been up and down, but the one thing that is very evident is that the days are definitely getting shorter. I saw a cartoon this week where a woman is panicky because she thinks it's midnight, but it turns out that it's only 5:30. It doesn't sound funny when I describe, but I definitely chuckled in recognition.

This has been ...

happy october . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Hello October, I'm so happy that you're here!  It's *birthday* month and it's blog hop month, too!  :)

I finished stitching up Mr. Jack O'Lantern!  
He's such fun.  But I felt he needed something a little more than a hoop or mug rug finish. I think I found (or rather, made) the perfect solution . . .
Yay!  It's a slipcover for a Christmas pillow I've had for ages. I may go back and quilt the face of it later.  Maybe.  Right now, I'm liking is just as it is, where it is!

I got ...

Autumn abounds from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone! So, just like that, it's October. How on earth did that happen? While 2020 cannot be over soon enough for me, the year is just rushing by now. I guess this means that it's really fall, too, and the next season will be here before too long. With the pandemic and all, can't we just skip that and go right to next spring? That only seems fair.

I have another finish to share today! The closet full o' tops is slowly getting whittled down to just a few. Here is this week's finish:

Hello, Autumn from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!

It's been quite a while since I've posted.
Something happens every year,
that refreshes me and recharges my creativity...
it's called Autumn.


Here in Pennsylvania,
fall shows up for a day or two here and there,
before the leaves change
and summer goes away for a long long time.
It's perfect weather for a caramel latte
and some homemade pumpkin bread.


The colors of fall lift my spirits,
and they show up in flowers as well as on the trees.


My husband and I recently bought a Cricut Maker.
I hope to share lots ...
