Fall Quilt

I know you have all missed me, I am back from vacation and am missing it already. Really I am just missing hanging out with my family, I wish we lived closer!!

Fall is almost over here - in fact we have had snow three times already! Good thing it melts pretty quick! But I have a fabulous fall quilt to share with you today.

I made this quilt a while ago and my kids call it my Halloween quilt. The leaves on the ground were perfect and then pumpkins added the perfect touch for my photos! (I have to thank my neighbors for the pumpkins!)

It is really made up of 6 huge blocks (well you make 24, but they make a pattern of 6 blocks), here is one of them:
This pattern is call Charming Old Maid and it is from Moose on the Porch quilts. She was the quilter for my quilting group when I lived in Utah years ago. It is from her book Simply Charming Two.

I loved making this quilt, it was super easy just using a charm pack and yardage!  I have actually made a lot of her quilts from the original book and the second book because they are so easy and cute!

It is 68" x 92". Here is my attempt at an aerial shot!
I had so much fun taking pictures of this quilt! The lighting was good (doesn't mean my pictures turned out great), and the weather was perfect!
And as I was just about ready to head in my little helper noticed I was outside and came out to help me! And he was just too cute not to take photos of! So we get one of him all snuggled up in the quilt!

Now I am off to put the finishing touches on Halloween costumes before our town parade tomorrow!

Enjoy!
