End of Fall?

20 12 2010

According to the calendar, today is the last day of Fall.  I would argue based on the fact the leaves have been gone for about 2 months here, that Fall is already in the past.  However, I suppose because we have had temperatures in the high 50s to low 60s during the last two weeks here at over 6000 feet elevation,  one could make a case that winter isn’t here either.  It probably doesn’t really matter one way or another, since I continue to work on a Fall project.  I’ve completed three more blocks in the Autumn Joy BOM over the last few days.

Block two is a basket of cone flowers.

Block three is made up of  oak leaves appliqued to two Hole in the Barn Door blocks.  I did have to go out and purchase the rust fabric to frame the blocks.

Block four is probably my favorite, at least so far.  I’m not sure why, since I don’t particularly like to cook.  I did have to buy the background fabric and the white bowl fabric.  I changed the recipe to an apple pie  rather than pumpkin because I’ve never seen a pumpkin pie with a double crust.  I suppose I should have used a cherry pie recipe since I made the vents in the crust red.  But the apple pie recipe is a real recipe (abbreviated slightly for the block) that is Guy’s favorite.

The first three blocks have been combined into a unit.  The filler strip made up of 2-1/2″ squares came from pieces in my scrap box.  Most of those scraps aren’t even that large.


So it seems whatever the calendar says, Autumn continues for me.
