Loving the Extended Fall



It's really quite late for us to still have beautiful fall colors. I am loving it! Friday after work I stopped at this little lake and stayed quite a while, until the sun set. The water was like glass! There were some ducks swimming around at one point, but I didn't get good pictures of them. I enjoyed the ambiance, however.

I don't have quilt pictures to show you, but I AM working on my blue/green HSTs! And I bought more green/blue FQs to use in my HSTs.

Report on our recent church bazaar (I posted photos of some of the stuff I was donating to the bazaar).. I bought myself a pretty bracelet. Of my four table runners/toppers, only one sold. The baby quilt did not get any looks and only one comment, which was quite unusual ("babies can't have quilts any more"). The baby onesie thing I made got a few comments but did not sell. I have not had good luck over the last few years selling my quilty items, so I think it's just not the right crowd. Next year, I'll make stuff I want to keep or give to friends and charities, and everyone will be happier.

Hi Carol,
What a lovely fall picture- The leaves here in Western Canadian have mostly fallen from the trees but so far we have had only a skiff of snow that disappeared by mid morning. Your trees are still so beautiful.
I really liked your table runners and pink quilt- You do really lovely work. It is so hard to know what things will sell at a sale.
Did you find some fabric for the binding? You could always use a multicolored binding by making it out of the leftover bits from the quilt. A friend I have only makes bindings from all her left over bits- They are beautiful multicolored edges that have become her quilt signature.
Keep making your lovely quilts.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards from a Western Canadian quilter,
Anna

That is a gorgeous picture, Carol! We still have lots of fall color here in CT, too...very late for us.

I'm sorry that the church bazaar was such a dissapointment. I guess that it just isn't the right buyers for your quilty projects.

Sorry about the Bazaar. I think your items are beautiful.

"Babies can't have quilts"??? Must be a response to the recommendation that no loose items should be in the crib. I used several quilts on the floor with my little one.
