My day to play!

Welcome to day two of the Leafs me Happy Blog hop!




It is hard to believe it is fall already!! 

For those of you who have been following my blog for a bit you may recall that I am trying to make a mini for each month of the year. I have known exactly what I wanted to make for Fall for some time now and this hop was the perfect reason to get my butt into gear and make it!!

I would have liked to make a few more blocks...However; harvest time in the garden has trumped my quilting. They are calling for the possibility of snow this week so I see a lot more time for quilting in the near future.

Okay now onto my block. It is 12.5 and appliqué.
I am calling it......Fall...I know what an unique and wonderful name...lol

I am not very good at drawing, but I had this image of a scarecrow in my mind and tried to recreate it. This is my first time doing appliqué letters and since I can read what it says I am pretty happy with the outcome..lol

I would like to thank our head cheerleader Madame Samm as well as out leafy co-cheerleader Cherry for putting this hop on. It sure was fun to take part!! I am so darn inspired and its only day two! I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created and I sure hope you all keep hopping along with us for the next 8 days.

My fellow co hosts for today are:

  25. What a great idea. I want to make a table runner for each holiday, but I'm stuck trying to finish my first quilt. Then I got delayed trying to potty train my new puppy.. still stuck there. Sooner or later I will get to those table runners and then after that, I would love to buy one of those display frames and make a cute banner for each holiday or each month.

  47. Mrs. Pickles-Your little scarecrow mini is very sweet. I also love your idea of making a mini for each month. Are you going to make a quilt with all of them? I have a big window in my home in which I display seasonal (cheater) quilts. They're a fair size, about the size of a crib quilt and the window glass was coated to prevent UV damage as one of our previous felines had skin cancer on his ears. He was a beautiful white neighborhood rescue kitty that we eventually kept indoors. From California, thanks for sharing.

  85. Mrs. Pickles - Very nice job with your first attempt with lettering. I love fall with the crispness in the air and I know winter is coming! I don't like hot weather and I live where there is lots and lots of days over 100 degrees. What a cute project! I'm more into pastels, so I've never done a "FALL" quilt! Now I may need to do that. My mother made me a scrappy Maple Leaf quilt and I love it. Thank you for taking the time to participate and share.
