A Little Fall

Just thought I'd share a couple of weekend fall photos. Old quilts  . . .  new photos. I really like the outdoor pictures of quilts that are popular in the quilting world these days and have been trying to take more of this style when I can. I know this type of photo usually has nothing to do with the quilt's function and maybe doesn't even make sense to some of you. But they are so much fun to compose and style I can't resist. It's also a great way play up the quilt's theme or even the name.

Enjoying all the fall colors recently, it occurred to me I better get out and try for a couple of good photos before the color and leaves are all gone. And since I don't have any new, more modern quilts that fit the fall color scheme I took out these two older quilts.

During the photo below, my husband literally fell into the job of quilt holder upper in more ways than he bargained for. I told him to move a little closer to some leaves and he slid right down the hill . . . holding the quilt up all the while I might add. Isn't he sweet? Thankfully he wasn't hurt and neither was the quilt.

This shot was taken right in our front yard. We don't always have many nicely colored leaves but this year there's a nice thick layer. I love shuffling through crunchy leaves.    : )

Can you tell I like sunflowers? Besides these quilts I even decorate with sunflower and yellow dishes for the fall season. Mostly flea market and thrift store finds. Love going on the hunt for treasures.

If it's fall where you live, get out and enjoy before the leaves have fallen. We've often had a snow fall by now here in Colorado but this year has been a beautifully sunny, long fall. Hope it will last till Halloween.


  1. Hi Anne. Beautiful photos today . Very pretty

  2. What a delightful post! Your yard is beautiful and so are your quilts.

  3. I was up in Utah a couple of weeks ago and loved scrunching through the leaves and taking photo after photo of the coppery hues and brilliant yellows. My mom and dad kept telling me "you've missed the best," but to me whatever I saw WAS the best--so different than where I live (where there is nothing like this). A great post, Anne (and please don't feel like you have to write back to any of these notes filling your mailbox--I'm catching up on my blog reading, and having a good time on your blog!)



WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
