Favorites on Friday: Fall Quilts

 Since I've started doing a little Fall decorating around the house (Monday is the first day of Autumn) I thought it would be fun to share my favorite fall quilts for today's favorites post. My absolute favorite fall quilt is one I did about ten years ago using scraps. It was one of my first attempts at machine applique using fusible material along with a buttonhole stitch.

What I'm Working On: Scrappy Log Cabins

 I just can't stop making scrappy log cabin blocks. I went through my scraps and separated a lot of "low-volume" fabrics to use for the "light" sections

 I try to pick out fun center squares and then make sure there is a good mix of colors in each block. So the blocks aren't completely random, but I'm not being super picky, either.

A Little Weekend Quilting

 I did get to do a little quilting done this weekend...well, actually, I did a lot, but some of it I can't share just yet. But I worked on a couple of my own projects, too. All of those flying geese...they are now part of my "Whit" quilt. And now I just need to hand stitch the binding for the finish.
