Autumn is my favorite time of year! I was telling Jackie over at Wren's Nest about all that I love about Autumn and thought I'd add my thoughts here. This is MY TIME OF YEAR! Pumpkins, fall leaves, soups & stews, trick-or-treaters, the crisp air, the colors, it feels cozy but not cold... I love it all! I even love raking the leaves! I even love the word "autumn"!

One of my favorite quilts is one I made about 3 years ago. It's a Bare Roots pattern, but I added some of my own drawings (quilts, the Coast Guard, and something else... I forget) for the stitching.

This Bare Roots pattern is called "For These I Give Thanks". I think I tweaked the setting as well (as I do 99% of the time with patterns). Anyhoo... The fabric came from The Buggy Barn and I think they are by Moda or P&B. I danno, all I can remember is that I just adore the fabrics! And Autumn! Edited in... I do keep this quilt up year round, except at Christmas time when I hang a Christmas quilt in it's place.

Yes... I know my photos on the wall are askew. It's how I live.

That is so pretty and fits perfectly right where you have it. Do you take it down in winter? It would be really hard for me to take down. Autumn will be my favorite time of year when it gets here. :o)
