Autumn Leaves


So we are officially in the autumn season!  Most of the younger generation in our family are ga-ga for autumn.  Some of them even mark the days until autumn as early as the Fourth of July.  Now that we are in autumn, I guess I can drive them nuts by marking down the days until spring (176). 😁

Today there are a lot of autumn themed quilts but most center on leaves.  This was similar to quilt patterns of yesteryear.





In the 1970s there were a lot of orange and brown quilts made and a lot of orange and brown fabric.  It went along with that whole avocado colorways.

But the most favorite thing I found regarding autumn quilts was this poem, no author given:

Autumn Quilt.

You should see the maple tree in our yard
    Aflame with crimson and gold.
I think it looks like a patchwork quilt
Set with pieces gay and bold.

Wishing you a safe and happy day!
