Hello Fall Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the first day of the Hello Fall Blog Hop!  I've been excited about this one since Carla @Creatin in the Sticks sent out the invitation.  Many thanks to Carla who organizes the greatest blog hops.

I always look forward to the Fall, and taking down my patriotic quilts and pillows, and getting out my Fall themed ones.  I love the colors of Fall, I love to collect pumpkins, ceramic and otherwise and I am always tempted by Fall projects.  I don't know if it is because I have an October birthday, but it is one of my favorite times of year!  











I've always liked this simple, easy tea towel, and decided to make another for the Hello Fall Blog Hop.





They look pretty good together, though my oldest daughter has laid claim to the new one!



My second project, I wanted to make a bench pillow, I thought I bought one, but it wasn't really a bench pillow size, a lot smaller.  I designed this cushion.  Somehow I ended up misfiguring what I needed for a border and doubled it.  I really only needed one row of HST's.   I really didn't want to take all that stitching of the last row around out, so it ended up being the size of a small bed pillow.  I love it anyway despite my bad math!





Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have included the whole program for Hello Fall Blog Hop below, be sure and check the others blogs out too!

You've made some beautiful autumn-themes quilts and other items for your home, Karrin! Your newest items are wonderful -- the Hello Fall pillow and the dish towel -- but my favorite is the little quilt with two pumpkins with vines in the center and the green, orange, and light quilt blocks surrounding them. The blocks around the outside (I think they're called "The Chinese Block Quilt," at least according to Judy Hopkins's book, 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks) look spectacular. It's interesting to see how they look set side-by-side.

Love all of your Fall projects! Your newest towel is beautiful! Love the stitching on the pumpkin, and crows are one of my favorite birds, at least in quilts. Your pillow turned out lovely. The border looks great!

Your fall projects are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Carol Andrews said...

Wow! You do have some very inspiring fall projects. Thankyou for sharing them all. I can see why your daughter laid claim to the towel. It is so cute. That pillow is perfect, even if it is a bit larger than you wanted. Covid Brain has been affecting us all. For me math is also difficult right now. 😉

Quilting Gail said...

Your entire blog post smells like pumpkin cinnamon in my mind!! Thanks so much for sharing such lovely projects. You have too many to pick a favorite but i do love all of your colors. Yes, you must love fall partially because it's the time of year for your birthday. I guess that's why I love all things Valentine's Day!!

tink's mom said...

You might have meant it to be a bench pillow but it is a perfect chair pillow. Love it. Your towels are wonderful as are all of your other Fall pieces.

LJ said...

Bad math or not, the pillow is so cute and is a wonderful reminder of the "hello fall" blog hop. Your daughter has good taste - it's a perfect fall project.

Susan said...

Both are wonderful projects! You don't get to keep much. =)
