We had our first glimpse of fall this morning with a sprinkle of rain and I just had to put up this new quilt called, "Pumpkin Patch." Over the summer we started hanging quilts outside the Shoppe on days that weren't too hot or when the building wasn't being painted. Quite a few people mentioned it made the Shoppe easier to spot...seeew that's a good thing!
The "Mothership" spent hours planning this one and of course...we've got a limited batch of kits for anyone who loves working with wool and applique. This quilt takes a lot of fabric and a lot of wool. Wool is not cheap and with a size of 96" x 92"...this kit is going to be on the spendy side, but well worth every penny. The time consuming steps of fabric selection have already been done of you seeew you can spend more time sewing instead of worrying about color selection. Did you know that fabric selection is one of the hardest parts for some quilters? Not everyone has hours and hours to spend picking out fabrics in a quilt store and it can get overwhelming. Planning a 96" x 92" sized quilt does present such an obstacle...but for some of you - that is a dream. A word of note: the "Mothership" only uses the highest quality of wool in our quilts and projects made with wool.
Well would you look at that!
Now that's some power.
In the blink of an eye we suddenly have a symphony of fall! Um...clearly someone has some connections with Mother Nature.
Relax...time hasn't escaped you. I needed some ambiance. The outdoor pictures were from last fall seeew you still still have plenty of time to make that pumpkin pie. I'm not trying to rush you or anything. Afterall, we just received Bonnie & Camille's "Miss Kate" which is full of colors that are um....not like anything you see in this post.
I can hardly wait to experience Autumn's bounty again! With all of the changes the "Mothership" and I are doing to the Shoppe over the next few weeks (Hint: Fixtures, cabinets will be moving around) - it makes me even more excited!
