I normally decorate with "Americana" quilts and accessories from Memorial Day through Labor Day. This year I just couldn't seem to get motivated to put them away. I finally figured out that I needed to leave them up until after September 11th; I felt much better about that, but it was still bittersweet this morning as I gathered them to store until next spring.
I really do love this stack of quilts--two lap-sized along with four small quilts! Almost all of them have star blocks, and each has a red binding except for the lone navy-bound quilt.
So, it was with a little bit more nostalgia than usual that I started pulling out the fall quilts and accessories. Fall is my favorite season, and I just might even get my fall wreath up on the front door today! Those who know me know I am certainly ready for some cooler temperatures; I appreciated the rain this weekend that cooled things down and hinted at the wonderful weather to come.
Oh, and I started another project with my Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle...when this little table topper is finished I'll share it again. Remember, you can still enter to win one of these fat quarter bundles here.
One more thing to mention...my friend Jackie has put together a wonderful quilt-along starting this month! Find out all about it here! I had fun putting together my block and will be the first stop on the tour later this month! This is sure to be a wonderful quilt as there are so many talented designers participating...I feel honored to have been invited!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by!
