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.
