Changing...


First, thought I would show this tree from the edge of the swamp area.  Always in previous years, I thought they were changing early due to lack of rain.  Not so this year.  We have had rain all along.  Then yesterday, on the way to the super walmart, I noticed sumac just as red as could be!  So, fall is thinking about heading our way.  And to be outside at dark, sounds like fall is already here.

********************

I wish I had a decent place to photograph quilts but I just don't.  This quilt top is on a queen sized bed.  It has a block that hangs over each edge, except the head of the bed.  I suppose I need to add a border, but first I am going to see what batting I have and also thinking about what I have got to use as a backing.  I have fabric in mind for the backing and if I have to go no borders to use it, that is what I will do.

Not a lot going on other than this...I am still waiting on a tomato to ripen.  I have had one of the newer, smaller tomatoes rot on the vine.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Hello,

Your quilt looks beautiful. I have been seeing some leaves turning colors, I thought it was because of our lack of rain. It has been so dry here lately. Take care! Have a great day!

That is just so pretty.
It does sound like fall in the evening - so many cicadas and crickets. The birds and squirrels seem to be acting a little different too. I am ready to be done with these 90's.

I have picked 2 tomatoes - neither was 100% ripened yet - I just didn't want anything to get them! I will probably eat the first tomorrow. I will think of you!!!!!!

Most beautiful quilt I have seen. Just found your blog and it is really interesting. You seem to be such a wholesome, good, decent person. You belong to last ones of a fading breed.

Your quilt is beautiful! Maybe the tree is sick and dying.

The quilt is so pretty. I am seeing no changes of color around here yet, and that is fine by me.

I love the quilt! Those are your crumb blocks aren't they? It sure looks good and you put them together very quickly. It seems much too early for Fall but you are farther north than I am.

Love it! Didn't realize you were making such a large quilt. With or without a border it looks very summery and cheerful. Oregon has another 2-3 months before the leaves turn.

That quilt is amazing! All the different fabrics and colors. I just don't know how you did it all. It is so pretty.

Marie Smith said...

It is strange for the leaves to be turning this early. I wonder what is causing that response? That quilt will be lovely!

Pretty quilt.

It is a pretty quilt, and so smart of you to plan ahead with the batting and backing. I am not ready for a change of the seasons yet.

I am also beginning to notice those subtle little changes as our days begin to grow shorter. Most days we are losing a minute in the morning and another in the evening. The little Sassafras tree that I walk by every day already has several orange leaves. And, the little hummingbirds are gorging as though they are already fattening up for their long journey which is not so far away. I love the quilt! I am looking forward to seeing more of this one!

I love your pretty quilt. You have so much patient to complete your quilts. We are having cooler weather now with some bright sunshine.

We have no fall at all! But we do have the loudmouth cicadas singing their hearts out. Every time we go in the backyard and sit by the pool I have to come in the house because I can't stand the sound. I think it's just the kind of time of the year no matter where we are. I think your bed is the perfect place to show your quilts. I have often wondered why quilts never hang down two sides but now that I have watched you make so many quilts and other bloggers to I know that it requires so much more material and so much more valuable time to make it bigger and bigger. Now I'm wondering if anybody has ever made one that would cover a king-size bed and hang down like a spread

love the quilt and a bed is the right place to show us IMHO...

although I love it when Spring is coming to NZ - it's still very Winter here, so don't ya get a startin' thinking it's nearly Fall there! We need a lot more rain as our ancient city water supply tanks are not nearly full enough for the next season...

I don't know how I missed this post. Oh, the quilt is so, so beautiful. I am seeing a few touches of fall here also. I just love Autumn!

DeniseinVA said...

Goodness, what a pretty first shot! Certainly looks like a changing season doesn’t it? Your quilt is stunning and how I wish I could create something as marvelous as this. Happy weekend to you Rose :)

Your photo of the turning sumac, is a lovely one.

Hooray for some signs of coming Autumn! I try to enjoy each season, as it is with us, but hot summer, is hard, to keep to that plan. So I am thinking Autumnal thoughts.

Lovely quilt!!! what amazing work you do!!!

Interesting.... I left a comment on 3 of your posts. But it only showed up, on the first one... The last post you did.

I wonder why my other comments, have not shown up?

Maybe Blogger is tired, tonight.
