It’s the final day of the Blog Hop today. I’m kinda sad to see it wrap up, as I have enjoyed perusing all of the designer’s blogs over my morning cup of coffee. I hope you have all enjoyed the fun projects and topics of the day too. In addition to that, I have enjoyed reading all your comments. They are always such an encouragement and with that, I am ready to blog on! It’s also your last chance to comment on each designers blog, so you will be eligible for the great prizes. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Today the featured designer is Pat Sloan. Click here to see her project.
Today’s topic of the day is Fall Quilts. I may have mentioned that this is my favorite topic, as I love fall colors, fabrics and themes!
Plus, many of you have already asked about some of the fall quilts I’ve shown in my previous blog hop posts, and I’ll talk about them below (and tell you what pattern or book to find them in).
Here’s one that several of you have asked about:
It’s called Emmy’s Autumn Runner and can be found in my book “Gifts for all Reasons“.
I like the combination of the wool applique on the cotton quilt. Many of you have commented that you haven’t tried wool yet, and this is a good way to give it a try!
I also had several requests for the name of this one:
It’s called the Everyday Table Topper and can be found in my book “Charmed and Dangerous“. It’s perfect for Charm Squares.
Autumn Days, from the book “A Seasons of Change”
Fall Seasonal Topper from my book “On the Run”
Some of you that are up on fabric designers might notice that many of my fall quilts are made from fabric lines designed by the über talented Sandy Gervais, who also happens to be a designer on our Fall-O-Ween blog hop. Her fall lines are my absolute favorite.
Harvest Time, available as a single pattern or in the book “Favorite Quilts from Anka’s Treasures”
This one also comes in a smaller size:
A friend of mine inspired me to add a Jack-O-Lantern face, as that is what she did on hers when she made this pattern.
And, last but not least, Maple Harvest, also from the book “Favorite Quilts from Anka’s Treasuers”. BTW, this book is not being reprinted, so get it while you can!
I have a few more fall quilts in my stash, but I decided just to show my favorites to keep this post from getting too long.
Plus, you need some time to visit the other designers on the hop:
