~ Autumn ~

I call this little quilt "Autumn".
It reminds me of the colors of leaves in the fall;
gold, greens, browns,  and rust.

Here is the front view.
Blocks are called log cabin variations.
I had to piece together some tiny scraps
to make this little quilt.  I don't mind.
I like to use up every last piece of fabric I can.

The back view.
A piece of fabric picked up from a yard sale.
Loved the fall scene with the dogs and pumpkins;
had to add a strip of fabric at top and bottom to fit the quilt top.

Here is the quilt as a table topper;
before being put into the washer.
It lies flat and thin.

After being washed the little quilt has shrunk in size
and is all lumpy and soft.

I know it is Summer; but we have so much overcast
with clouds that this morning seemed more like a day in fall.
