Did someone mention Harvest?

I love that time of year, when colors change, and there is a chill in the air. It makes me want to dig thru all my fabrics and get ready for a long winter quilt season.  Nothing warms the soul better than stitching a quilt! 

This year our Halloween/Fall swap at Quilted table yielded the perfect fabrics for me to make this runner for my partner.  You see in this swap, we send our favorite fabrics to our swap partners and they turn them into a table runner and mail them back to us!  It's all great fun.

These fabrics that Jane sent me, just screamed fall colors, and "Harvest Pumpkin" from Laundry Basket Quilts was just the one!  Check out the wonderful designs they offer. My personal favorites are under the Raw Edge Quilt Patterns tab. There are some spectacular patterns in there.  I did a little adjusting to change a wall hanging into a table runner for her. 

I was delighted to see the photo she posted once it arrived. She wrote me, that as soon as she opened the package she went and pullout out her fall decorations. Now does this look like her little wagon was made to match or what!! 





So...  Now I have to have a Harvest pumpkin for myself. (Mine is a wall hanging)   Isn't it amazing just how a look can change with different fabrics?  I think I like Jane's best!

And we finally got some sunshine here and I was able to take some of those special fall photos!

Even though this looks like it could be a framed picture, it's really the view out the window. :-)

Tomorrow I have to go home. :-( 
I am definately not ready to leave!

Psssst...  Did you hear that Accuquilt is having a Facebook special? Better run and check them out. Click "Here" and you won't be sorry!  I'm ordering my Halloween dies, and a couple other goodies!  :-)

  1. Isn't it interesting how we seem to be far more productive with our sewing during Winter. Of course that makes sense as we are less inclined to be outside!
    Gorgeous table runner. Lovely rich colours.
    And I love that you also made a wall hanging for yourself. I love the colours in that too!
    Have a safe trip home!
