Every year for the past several, I design a BOM Quilt for Quilt Cove. For 2008 I designed a scrappy sampler done in warm batiks called Autumn’s Splendor. We pick out the fabrics each month for the current block which means that I have to work one month at a time. I have a tester, but have been doing this quilt myself as well. I have spent yesterday and today catching up on piecing the blocks. Seems like a perfect time to do it as Autumn temps have hit our area. I love Autumn. It is my favorite time of year. I love the changing colors and the crispness in the air. To me Autumn is more of a time of new beginnings than the traditional Jan 1 or spring.
