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:
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!
