Autumn Home

I have entered the Quilting Gallery weekly quilt competition.

This is my entry for the log cabin category this week.

All my loyal followers might like to vote for me.

This quilt was completed some years ago. (So long ago in fact that I had to trawl through lots of old files to find this ONE photo).

Some of the fabric has cute little pumpkin motifs on it. It is entirely machine pieced, except for the applique which includes more pumpkins and a cute little birdie sitting on the roof of the house. It is hand quilted.

I was a real pleasure to make. I especially loved making the autumn leaves in the corners. It still remains one of my favorites!

I must take some more close-ups of this quilt, perhaps a job for this weekend.

Do you have any old time favorites?

Have a happy day!
