A beautiful season, a new book, a new top
“The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.”
I welcome your beautiful warm colors
and all what you bring along!
I enjoy letting myself “fall” into this cozy season…a good book, a cup of tea, and a quilt to make it warm and perfect.
Last year I finished a top, using colors to celebrate this lovely season.
Kaffe Fasset stripes and oak shot fabrics, they match so beautifully.
Finally done, quilted and bound.
A closer view…
she did it again!
Her third book is full of colorful, stunning, and beautiful quilts!
Eye candy, as usual,
Her creativity is fascinating, I was stunned when I saw her quilts and met her years ago, a joyful, friendly woman, ever smiling and so nice to talk to. I confess I still haven’t made any of her great patterns, but, never knows!
She does not use the English Paper Piecing method, what is astonishing when you take a look at how tiny the pattern pieces are. But that’s the method quilters all over the world are making her patterns. She really brought EPP to a new level without using it! EPP and fussy cutting, a magical combination.
A few pictures to give an idea …
Take a look at the border of this quilt,
I’m mesmerized by this one…
Everything about it, the colors, the movement, the border,
a quilt to fall in love with!
Thanks Willyne for all the inspiration,
for taking us into your beautiful, colorful world of quilts.
Now, to a new top I’ve started.
Pssss….it’s going to be a gift!
Have a lovely and creative time!
