Fall Travels (or back & forth to the shop on County 1!)

Fall Travels (or back & forth to the shop on County 1!)

I know I say it every year, but fall really is my favorite season.  I really do love living in the Midwest for all 4 seasons, they are so, so different and when one starts to wane, lickity split you are in the midst of the next one. 

Wintertime to settle in, do some of the things that get put aside, fireplaces, warm sweaters & mittens, holidays and the land at rest with a sparkly white blanket on top, Springtime with everything so new, fresh and green, Summertime with vacations, ball games and time at the lake, and then Fabulous Fall, the bright vivid colors, Eagle Bluff Quilt Retreat, pumpkin flavored everything and more!  

My daughter Suzie and I commute back and forth to the shop everyday.  Usually we take the road less traveled, and for us that is County 1.  The drive has been amazing these last couple of weeks, each day the vista gets more brilliant.  It is full of curves and hills, cattle grazing in the fields, farmers harvesting (on the days it does not rain), just a great drive to start and end each day.

Right along with the fall season we have some beautiful kits in the shop right now, they are all made and hung in the shop, if you have a minute we would love to have you stop by and see them. They are so reminiscent of Autumn.

This kit is made of yummy Maywood flannels great for snuggling up with.  Finished size is 61x49.  Pattern included in kit.

This lovely quilt was made by Joy with a new line from Jo Morton called Shelbyville.  Quilt Patterns is Heathstone.  Finished size is 78 1/2  x 90.  Love it!


Next up is Nightlights.  Another cuddly quilt made with Maywood Woolies flannels from Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night. Finished size is 70x90. Pattern included in kit.

Farm Life is a super cute quilt with piecing and wool applique, the quilt finished 58x58, perfect size of a lap quilt or wall hanging.


Sorry, this picture does not at all do this quilt justice.  The wonderful Irish Chain is made with Quilt Minnesota 2019 and Cherrywood Hand Dyed cottons.  Larger size 74x94 would be great for anyone but especially for the guys in your life.  Simple to make and pattern is included with the kit.

This is favorite of mine - it is a 12 pack quilt called Pumpkin & Vine with various shades of green and oranges.  Kit includes 12 fat quarters, add a background fabric of your choice and there you have it!  Pattern included with kit.  Finished size 56x72

Sadly, it will not be long and we will be looking at this season from the rear view mirror the trees will lose their leaves and get ready for a winter sleep.  Enjoy it's beauty and bounty!  Sneak some quilting time in for good measure too!  You can enjoy fall with a little trip down the road or with any of these kits right at your sewing machine.

Happy Quilting
