Autumn Quilts & Pumpkins

Scarecrow quilt from Connie
Garden Angel from Kathy Pelkki
I love fall even though I am holding onto summer as long as possible. Give me a 65-70 degree day and I'm full of energy. May Britt asked about our favorite season and quilts that depict it. Here are a couple of fall quilts that grace my walls. The scarecrow was made by my sister, Connie for my birthday several years ago. Isn't he adorable? The pattern was in a Piecemaker calendar. The harvest angel I bought at one of my guild's mini auctions and was made by Kathy Pelkki. I love that one, too.

I was at the market the other day and took pictures of pumpkins. They have big ones, little ones, bumpy ones and white ones displayed among gourds and cornstalks and pretty colored mum plants.

I've never seen white pumpkins before. I wonder if they've seen a ghost and turned white.

So cute, the raffia on the scarecrow is a clever touch, and I love the pumpkin photos.

Cute quilts. I love this time of year. I don't think I've seen white pumpkins before. I'll have to keep an eye out for those locally.
