In the not too distant future..

Well, sad to say, but summer is almost over and fall will be upon us before we know it. It’s time to add a bit of autumn decor to your home. These quilt patterns are just the start of what you can find with an autumn theme.

Delectable Autumn by Sew Many Visions has instructions for a mantle throw, a table runner and place mats.  The appliqued leaves seem to dance across the center of the table runner.  Batiks would really make the leaves come alive.

Autumn Star Pattern by Rachel’s of Greenfield has a block that is so versatile.  Make all three layouts in pretty fall colors and you’ll have a nice grouping for your wall.  Then make the same three in Christmas fabrics and you’ll have a head start on your Christmas decorating.  You’ll be ready to swap out the autumn and bring in the Christmas when it’s time. If you find you like making wall hanging sized quilts, this designer has lots of wall hanging patterns as well as several punch needle embroidery patterns.

Ok, you have the table covered, the mantle covered and wall hangings up.  Now for a lap quilt… Autumn Stars Lap Quilt by Kay Gentry looks like just the one.  Only 15 blocks, a couple borders and you are finished. 

When you finish all your Autumn projects you can curl up under this lap quilt while you browse your lap top for the perfect Christmas patterns and Christmas fabrics.  Before you know it we’ll be looking at Spring and Summer patterns and fabrics again.  Seems like each year goes by a little faster than the last.
