Day 10 of the Fall-O-Ween Blog Hop

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:

Terri – Whimsicals

    I personally think you need to have a sale soon so we can all buy all those gorgeous books and/or patterns. HAHA

    The Fall o ween blog has been very enjoyable & inspirational. The stories, the pictures, the projects, all have been great. Went to a local quilt shop today & found your book on favorite quilts, so that has been added to my book collection. It does have lots of wonderful ideas. Thanks for the blog hop and for letting all of us get to know each one of you talented ladies a little better…like finding new friends!

    Boy oh boy … what a wonderful quilts. I just LOVE this time of year !!! Thanks for sharing those 10 days of fun !!

  37. Penny says:

    Thank you for all that you have shared over the past ten days during the blog hop. I have never worked with wool so will enjoy making the project you provided. I had to chuckle on the “haunting” day as I am not interested in haunted houses or scary movies but what you offered was very creative. The quilts you shared with everyone today were just gorgeous! I checked to make certain that we have the quilt book that is almost out of print and we do!! I hope that you and your family enjoy a great autumn season. Good luck as you continue your creative efforts!

  42. Leslie Schmidt says:

    I agree about Sandy’s fabrics. I have more of her fall designs than anyone else. I don’t know how I missed your Gifts for All Reasons, but now I have to make a search for it. I love the boldness of the red and purple together. Beautiful!

  47. corinne says:

    Beautiful. beautiful, I want to see the rest

  48. peg says:

    Beautiful quilts – the colors are yum. I’m actually climbing out of lerkdom because I had to let you know that every time I open your blog and see the beautiful fabrics in your header I get inspired to run home from work and start working on something new. Of course, they frown on that here, so I have to wait until quitting time. You’re a great inspiration and I wanted to say thank you.

  49. Chris says:

    Heather I just love all your quilts! You really are a talented lady. I have enjoyed looking at all the photos, thanks for nsharing with us!! BTW I just made one of your Little Charmers 2 table runners out of some fall fabric. Loved the design and your pattern was easy to follow. (I made it for my sister who turns 50 next week.)

  50. Debbie says:

    I love your blog. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

  51. jessica says:

    I’ve been pointing and staring, 2 bad habits which are hopefully okay to do, when it comes to quilts! So, thank you for sharing the info about the beautiful projects!

  52. Carla says:

    Your quilts are so beautiful!!!!

  53. Jeffry says:

    By dividing up the party at several peoples houses you make it easy on yourself.

    A murder mystery game is a fun way to pass the time during the twenties theme party.
    I hope you have fun planing a birthday party
    for your tween, I hope my birthday party ideas for tween’s helped you.

  54. Sue Shafet says:

    I would like to get some of your patterns. How do I order them?
