Hello Fall

 When this hop was announced I knew just what I wanted to work on.  I’m the Vice President of my quilt group and pick a block each month for members to make for our disaster victim quilts.  Last fall I’d picked a leaf block and hadn’t gotten them out together so I figured it was an ideal fall project.  I didn’t have enough leafs so I combined them with Mr. Roosevelt’s necktie blocks.  Once the top is done another lady usually ties and binds them. 

  Then I think I got a case of quilters ADD and started several more fall projects. 

I’ve wanted to make a quilt with veteran outline for Veterans and Memorial Days for a couple years, I have the saluting soldier outline picked and the background, I just need to get them put together.  

Then I decided I needed to use a Halloween charm collection I had from Connecting Threads a couple years ago.  

When I was looking for those charm blocks I came across a few remaining pieces from a table runner I made my mother-in-law and used them as a leader and ended and created a table runner.

Finally I got a collection of 5 inch strips from Northcott’s Collection for a Cure at the second hand craft store.  It doesn’t look like fall fabric but October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a dear friend and mentor is currently battling breast cancer.  I made a top for myself and had 8 blocks that I reversed a section so I made a 9th block for a small throw for her to take to her chemo treatments.  Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of hers. 



I’m glad I did so much of the work on these before school started because it doesn’t look like I’ll have much sewing time this fall.

Check out the other hoppers.
