It's hard to believe that fall is upon us. Our final long weekend of summer has been a glorious one, with more sunshine and warmth than originally forecast. The subtle shift of seasons is already underway, even without the calendar telling us that a new month has begun. I can feel it in the cooler air overnight and the shorter daylight hours. This summer was so wonderful in terms of weather, that I don't want it to leave, but I do enjoy autumn as it's so full of colour and bounty (yes, I'm still canning... and will be as long as fresh local produce continues ;o).
Seems only fitting that I wrap up August will a warm, sweet finish. Peachy oranges and delicious pinks are a colour combo I just can't seem to get enough of.
Originally I thought 9 blocks would satisfy as a baby quilt, but somehow I couldn't leave it at that and made 3 final blocks. Perhaps I simply couldn't resist making more HST blocks in yummy oranges and pinks. ;o)
|Sherbet Pips Playdot in Vanilla had become a favourite background fabric. I've used it in my Cherry Blossom Baby Quilt and in my Swoon Quilt (which is still waiting to be quilted).|
I love how the colours glow in the morning light and can hardly wait to figure out the backing fabric, so I can begin quilting this little quilt.
Here's to a wonderful September, no matter whether you're welcoming Fall in the northern hemisphere or Spring in the southern. ;o)
