"Candle In The Window" Quilt.....

Fall time is a wonderful time of year.  I just love watching the trees change to beautiful colors.  Bright yellows, oranges, brilliant reds, greens, and more.  Trees to me are like beautiful quilts.  All colors, no matter what colors, all blend together.  It's fun to go to my sewing room with inspiration and start going through the fabric and seeing what I have and what quilt is next.

The cool evenings, all the different colors, taking the kids to the pumpkin patches and watching there faces glow with delight just picking out the right pumpkin to take home, the bonfires, the roasting of hot dogs, smores, hayrack rides, the decorating of your homes.  Don’t you agree that Fall time is a great time of the year?   Just love it!!

The quilt I want to share with you today is “Candle In The Window”
by Kansas Troubles Quilters, Lynne Hagmeier, designer.  The Jelly Roll called “Snow Bloom” was used for this project.  I made this into a full size quilt and this is one quilt I kept for myself.  I always made all my quilts for a special occassion or to give to my grandkids.  Well this one was special to me.  I love the dark colors accenting the cream in the center with the quilting.  Now I love my bedroom – it’s my quilt, I made it, I’m proud to let you see it. I had  quite a few of these blocks leftover and extra material so I decided to make curtains
to match the bedspread.  Couldn't stop there so made some pillow cases with some more of the leftover material.  Now I feel like the room is complete. Its simple but that's what I like, a homey, country feel.

I also want to show you the back of my quilt.  She did the quilting with cream color thread which really stands out on the brown material.  My quilter knows me pretty good and I can just take my quilt to her and tell her to do whatever she thinks will look nice.  She's been a friend for numerous years and owns her own shop in Hillsboro, Ks called Kessler Kreations.  She does longarm quilting and also sells fabric, etc. in her shop.  If you're that way or close to Hillsboro stop in and see her.

If you've been following my blog I've got some sponsors that you need to check out.  They have daily, weekly, monthly sales going on all the time.  I'll try to pass on the sales each week so sign up to be a follower and receive all the information.

Well on to my next project.  October is almost over and really hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner.  Leave me a comment, I'd like to hear what you're sewing for gifts this Christmas.  You might inspire me to make a few more gifts.

Until next time,
